  • There are two types available

    • Type N Schmidt Test Hammer Live - The Type N hammer is designed for testing concrete items 4” (100 mm) or more in thickness, or concrete with a maximum particle size less than or equal to 1.25” (32 mm). Type N hammer is also used for the testing of massive rock. Impact energy is 1.6 ft-lbs (2.207 Nm). Units have 1,450 psi to 18,150 psi (10 to 70 N/mm2) compressive strength. Testing Standards for N: ASTM C805, D5873; BS 1881: Part 202

    • Type L Schmidt Test Hammer Live - The Type L hammer operates with significant lower impact energy, making this hammer the ideal option for testing thin walled items with a thickness between 2” and 4” (50 to 100 mm) or for testing small components. The Type L is suitable for testing cast stone components, and paper products, which are sensitive to impact. In rock mechanics, the Type L hammers are commonly used for classification testing of rock cores and brittle rock. Testing Standards for L: ASTM D5873; ISRM Suggested Method for Rebound Index of Rock Cores
