Durometers with magnetic-drag mechanism

Part#: Model 3000
Supplier: Rex Gauge Durometers
Calibration Certificate: available on request

The Max-Hand 3000 durometer is Rex Gauge Co.'s latest innovation for the testing of specimens with creep. The Max-Hand 3000 has a max- hand and an active hand for observing the creep characteristics of a specimen.

What makes the Model 3000 unique is the magnetic-drag maximum reset mechanism. The user simply rotates the reset knob on the front of the gauge to clear the previous reading. The simplicity of the reset mechanism ensures a lifetime of use.

how to use

Rotate the rest knob until both hands meet. This places the max hand in position for testing. Hold the durometer in a near-vertical position and press the foot of the gauge firmly against the specimen, (but not so firmly as to imbed the foot into the surface of the material). The max hand will indicate the durometer reading instantaneously. The regular dial hand may recede from this maximum reading after a few seconds. This indicates creep or cold-flow of the specimen. Note maximum reading from max hand and also note creep reading after a given time delay while maintaining firm contact of the foot against the specimen. An example of a properly noted durometer reading: "durometer a 61, creep 7 at 15 seconds, 73F. Repeat above steps for each use.At Rest Position: Zero
