CL-150 Constant Load Stand with Flexible Coupling eliminates different speed and load variables which occur when testing samples with a hand-held durometer. The test speed and load the durometer applies to rubber and plastic samples are kept constant with a pneumatic damper and a standard weight.
In addition, the unique flexible coupling on the CL-150 enables the presser foot of the durometer to make perfect contact even on samples with inclined surfaces. Conventional fixed joint testers incompletely contact inclined test samples, resulting in uneven pressure being applied by the durometer.
The special model CL-150R1 hardness test stand allows precise measurement of various types of rubber rollers used in printers and copiers. The specimen holder with V-blocks secures the roller and can be adjusted so that the roller may be tested at any point.An anti-rotation feature holds position even after measuring.
Mount a model EX or X durometer to the constant load stand for a complete hardness testing system.
