MFT-5000 high temperature modules are an excellent option for running hardness testing at elevated temperatures.
Unique chamber design, exotic high temperature alloy materials, good thermal uniformity for repeatable data.
The inert gas chamber allows reaching rough vacuum before purging the chamber with inert gas. This reduces oxygen concentration in the chamber and prevents oxidation of the sample surface and indenters.
Multiple Samples and Automatic Indents
Multiple indents across different samples or within same sample with only one click.
The table shows materials hardness vs temperature for certain metallic alloy.
The high temperature hardness module on the MFT-5000 is interchangeable to allow running several other standard and non standard high temperature tests on the same platform.
Isolate the high resolution load cells using innovative design and methods resulting in negligible thermal drift during the test.
Down force control
Real-time force control during the test. This allows to run several hardness standard on same tool.
Close loop temperature control characterizes hardness at various temperatures.
The XY stage to create multiple indents automatically at various temperatures and locations.
The Hot Hardness tester is used extensively across a wide range of industries:
