Resource-consuming Measurements on Growth Drilling Cores CAN be Replaced

Determining the Density of Trees & Timber with Hylec’s wood density tester Injured Trees Did you know when a tree is injured, the wound never heals? Instead, the tree compartmentalizes the wound by walling it off with chemicals. Knots in lumber are enclosed-off tree wounds. They are dark because the area is lifeless: Water and .. read more

Telegraph Poles attacked by soft rot? We have the wood density tester for you.

Pilodyn makes it possible to assess the extent of decay objectively and to determine the amount of strength loss it has caused, a matter of special importance with telegraph poles. The test consists in injecting a spring-loaded steel striker pin into the wood. A scale on the instrument gives the depth of penetration. Pilodyn makes .. read more

Plastic Moulds for Concrete Test Cylinders

Recent trials have established the benefits of heavy duty plastic moulds for concrete test cylinders. The heavy duty plastic moulds have insulating properties that minimise the effect of heating or cooling of the sample, due to high or low ambient temperatures. This results in more consistent and higher strength readings on one-to-ten day samples and without the need .. read more

Advances in Measurement of strength of materials using a portable hardness tester

Hylec’s Portable Hardness Tester. For over a century hardness testing Instruments have been used to measure the strength of metallic materials and hardness of their surface finish. The original machines were bench mounted and measured strength by applying a given force to a probe and making an indentation which causes plastic deformation. The material hardness .. read more

Hydrostatic and Burst Testing Machine

The Wance Type A hydrostatic and burst testing machine is specifically used for time-to-failure tests of plastic pipes under constant internal pressure. This machine is also used for short-time hydraulic pressure testing of plastic pipes, tubing, and fittings. Max pressure: 10Mpa, 16Mpa, 20Mpa and 30Mpa Features: Leakage test Rupture identification Overpressure protection No-water protection Automatic .. read more

LBG – Electronic Automatic Penetrometers

To determine the consistency of wet mortar, or other similar materials, LBG has recently released two automatic penetrometers which can measure the penetration force of a specified needle into this material. Both models use a single electro-mechanical control system to ensure that the needle penetrates the mortar at a fixed speed. The needles have an .. read more

Rockwell Hardness Tester 574T

The Rockwell Hardness Tester is a proven and reliable deadweight testing instrument. This system is capable of testing in all of the regular Rockwell hardness scales (60, 100, and 150 kgf major test forces), all superficial Rockwell hardness scales (15, 30, and 45 kgf), and can accommodate a wide variety of applications. The Rockwell 574T .. read more

Himmelstein Bearingless Torque Transducers

The flange configuration of Himmelstein Bearingless Torque Transducers makes them ideal for applications where limited space is available for the installation of a torque transducer. The Himmelstein Bearingless Torque Transducers’ ability to accommodate large misalignments between the rotor and stator and to tolerate mating metal components in close proximity separates them from similar competitive offerings. .. read more
