Equostat 3 unveiled

PROCEQ – the inventor of Leeb rebound hardness testing – has applied its many years of experience to produce a new instrument with unique features, allowing convenient hardness testing for a large variety of metal pieces on site.

Stationary hardness testers can only accommodate test pieces of limited size. Moreover, transportation of the test pieces is often impractical. The robust Equostat 3 works well in outdoor, factory, and lab environments, and has very few requirements on test piece geometries.

The new Equostat 3 probe can be connected directly to a laptop or a PC; alternatively, the probe can be plugged into the powerful Equotip 3 indicating device. The Equostat 3 offers unique user guidance to achieve reliable measurements. The small indentation size qualifies the instrument as an NDT technique. The Equostat 3 method conforms to DIN 50157 and ASTM B724 test standards. Hardness conversions are in accordance with ISO 18265 and ASTM E140.
