The PTC Hydraulic Durometer Operating Stands are precisely engineered and have a hydraulic damper that controls the rate of descent smoothly, without jump or stutter. The unit is activated with a simple smooth lever control. This stand is designed for serious testing eliminating operator variability and increased accuracy and repeatability. Whether in the lab or in a production environment you will get accurate and repeatable readings you can trust.
The 7000A is compatible with durometer ASTM types C, D and DO
The 7000D is compatible with durometer ASTM types A, B, O, E and Asker Type C
The specimen support table is adjusted to test materials of various thicknesses. An O-ring fixture can also be used when testing O-rings.
Heavy-duty stand with a solid base for stability and a one-inch diameter Stainless Steel Precision Ground Support Shaft for accurate alignment
Accommodates both standard and pencil length durometers
Hydraulically Controlled Rate of Descent
Cam Actuated Raise and Lower
Adjustable Specimen Support Table
Eliminates User Error
NIST Certification Included (7000D Only)
It is made with high precision components throughout. Including ball bearings, sintered bronze bushings and precision machined components
Will accept sample materials up to 3" (76mm) thick depending on the height of the durometer used
