Pendulum Hardness Tester

TQC Pendulum Hardness Tester

Paints and varnishes - Pendulum damping test

The TQC Pendulum Hardness Tester has a lot of unique features that ease defining hardness by the König and/or Persoz method as described in ISO 1522. Both methods work on the principle that the damping time of a pendulum oscillating on a sample indicates the hardness.

The instrument has an easy menu-driven interface with jog dial. The automated electronic counting mechanism is not affected by reflections from the surrounding area. The water-level is located on the test specimen, rather than on the instrument’s base. Once the instrument is leveled further calibration is not required. The gas-spring supported transparent draft cover allows easy access to all parts of the instrument.

TQC’s Pendulum Hardness Tester is a modular system. The instrument itself can be used for both the König and- Persoz method. Both pendulums should be ordered separately. After placing the correct pendulum, switching between the two measuring methods only takes a push of a button. The Pendulum is positioned fully automatically by means of a stepper motor. Also the release of the Pendulum is automated through electro-magnetic system. The end of a test is indicated by a visual and acoustic signal.
