Durometer Operating Stands come with adjustable specimen support table.

Press Release Summary:

Durometer Operating Stands are available in 7000 A and 7000 D models. Designed for PTC® durometer of classic style and the ergo styles, units come with hydraulic dampers for controlling rate of descent. Featuring cam actuated raise and lower, unit accept sample materials up to 3 in. thick. Stands are certified to NIST standards and are used in lab or production environments.

Introducing the New 7000A & 7000D Durometer Operating Stands

Mechanical Operating Stands Engineered to fit all PTC Durometers

The 7000A and 7000D durometer operating stands were engineered to fit all PTC® durometer styles. The Classic Style and the Ergo Style mount right on the stand. For the e2000™ and Pencil Style Durometers, a small mounting knob is included.

Mechanical operating stands that deliver a load sufficient to overcome the spring force of the durometer smoothly and without shock in approximately 1 second from contact. Most other mechanical stands apply an increasing load over time which gives inconsistent and inaccurate readings. Since rubber, plastic and elastomeric materials creep over time, it is essential that the load be applied promptly.

These precisely engineered durometer stands have hydraulic dampers controlling the rate of descent smoothly, without jump or stutter. They are activated with simple, smooth lever controls. 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 stands will accept sample materials up to 3" (76mm) thick depending on the height of the durometer used.
