High Temperature Hardness Tester

The Rtec high temperature hardness tester has a temperature range up to 1200°C. Special materials are used to provide excellent insulation to these chambers (the chamber external body is cool to touch even when the internal temperature is at 1200°C). The high resolution Rtec load cells are further isolated using innovative design and methods resulting in negligible thermal drift during the test. The chambers also offer options to test under inert gas atmosphere to prevent oxidation of the sample surface and indenters at high temperatures.
