The HPE II Pusey & Jones is specialized for testing on rubber or rubber-like materials. It is mainly used on rubber rollers in the paper industry, as well as on test specimens with a flat surface with a material thickness of 13 mm.
The electronic dial gauge indicates the penetration depth directly in 0.00 mm units and is equipped with a zero-setting option. This has the advantage so the display of the dial gauge can be set to zero by pressing a button as soon as the indenter with measuring rod is raised by lowering the measuring device body by approx. 3 mm.
With a vertical spindle integrated on the back of the device, the dial gauge can be sensitively moved up and down. By lowering the lateral load lever, the prescribed total force of 9.8 N is applied. After 60 seconds test time, the measurement result is read.
