Phase II’s portable ultrasonic hardness tester, model No. PHT-6000 Series, is a hand-held device that allows the measure of hardness on small, large, flat, round, thin or thick workpieces. This rugged metal body unit is capable of testing soft metals such as copper and brass as well as the typical hard metals and alloys while adhering to the strict ASTM A1038-10 guidelines for portable hardness testing using the UCI method. Checking coating hardness is also possible with this hardness tester.

The non-destructive feature allows accurate testing on delicate or finely finished surfaces without physical or structural damage to the operator’s part, and therefore saving cost and time for refinishing or replacing damaged part.

This portable hardness tester can easily convert and be calibrated to all the popular hardness scales, the company says.
