ASTM E Brinell Hardness Test. The Brinell Hardness Test is the oldest method of hardness testing commonly used today. The Brinell test was invented in. Guidelines for Brinell testing machines and the procedures for performing Brinell hardness tests are standardized through ASTM E ASTM E Standard Test Method for Brinell Hardness of Metallic Materials.

Brinell Hardness Testers – Indentec
The average diameter measurement can be converted to a Brinell hardness number via the Brinell formula or a conversion chart based on the formula. APM Testing provides A2LA accredited services for Brinell hardness testing aastm a fair price, with prompt delivery, and a detailed test report. Portable Brinell hardness testing machines that cannot meet the direct verification requirements and can brijell be verified by indirect verification requirements are covered in Test Method E Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
Above you can find our Brinell testing systems. Brinell hardness is directly related to the strength and wear resistance of a metal sample. How it works A Brinell hardness testing machine makes an indentation in a material, the resulting impression, the permanent width of rbinell, is measured across at least two diameters.
Brinell testing often use a very high test load Kgf and a 10mm ball indenter so that the resulting indentation averages out most surface and sub-surface inconsistencies.
Standard – Standard Test Method for Brinell Hardness of Metallic Materials ASTM E10 –
Material testing you can trust since Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Brinell testing machines Above you can find our Brinell testing systems. This information may correlate to tensile strength, wear resistance, ductility, or other physical characteristics of metallic materials, and may be useful in quality control and selection of materials. Although Brinell loads can be found ranging from 1kgf to kgf, most common scales use a testforce of kgf to Kgf and brinel 10mm ball indenter, so that the resulting indentation averages out most surface and sub-surface inconsistencies.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Smaller samples 1e0 sometimes be tested. Lower loads are used for small or soft samples.
ASTM E10 is a method of determining hardness by pushing a ball into the surface of a metal and then measuring the diameter of the indent left by the ball. Advanced Plastic and Material Testing, Inc. Although this standard specifies the unit of force in the International System of Units SI as the Newton Nbecause of the historical precedent and continued common usage of kgf units, force values in kgf units are provided for information and much of the discussion in brihell standard refers to brinepl in kgf units.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and asgm practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
The result is in the form of a hardness number between and with a higher number indicating a harder material. The tested surface must be relatively smooth and flat.

A Brinell hardness testing machine makes an indentation in a material, the resulting impression, the permanent width of indentation, is measured across at least two diameters.
Brinell hardness gives good results for non-uniform materials such as castings since it has a large indent size. Most commonly used to test materials that have brrinell structure that is too coarse or that have a zstm that is too rough to be tested using another test method, e.
