Pusey & Jones Hardness Tester (P&J Plastometer)
according to ASTM D 531
Our top quality Pusey & Jones (P&J) hardness tester (Plastometer) serves for the determination of the penetration depth on rubber and elastomer materials like rubber rollers and standard blocks made of rubber with a minimum thickness of 13 mm as well as paper rollers.
The electronic dial gauge is integrated in the instrument and shows the indentation depth in 0,000 mm units directly.
With the help of a vertical spindle which is integrated on the back of instrument, the dial gauge can be moved up and down conveniently and precisely.
The dial gauge is equipped with a zero setting function. Zero can be set by a single press of the zeroing key as soon as the indenter, together with the measuring bar, is lifted about 3 mm by lowering the body of the instrument.
The prescribed total load of 9,8 N is applied by lowering the loading lever on the right side. The test result can be read after a test time of 60 seconds.
The basic equipment includes an adjustable feet which can be adjusted according to the test object.
With the help of precise and user-friendly design of our P&J hardness tester, users can perform an easy, quick and reproducible measurement under load.
