Durometer Operating Stands Model 7000D




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 specimen support table is adjusted to test materials of various thicknesses. An O-ring fixture can also be used when testing O-rings.
