The Newage NB-3010 Bench Brinell is a deadweight Brinell tester that meets the needs of a wide range of Brinell applications – from occasional lab testing to constant testing in foundry environments – with a high level of accuracy and low service requirements.

Deadweight Design for High Accuracy

The NB-3010 system applies precise loads using a dead-weight design. A pneumatic cylinder ensures the load descends smoothly (so there is no impact effect on the test specimen) and lifts the load at the end of the test cycle. This simple load system does not require frequent monitoring or repeated calibration for each load change.

Easy Semi-Automatic Test Operation

The semi-automatic test sequence makes the test very easy. The operator raises the elevating screw until the part is seated. At the press of a button the load is applied and then removed after a preset time. Different loads are selected by adding or removing weights. No warmup period is required for accurate testing. Three push-buttons control the time-at-load selections.

Low Service Requirements

The NB-3010 has few parts critical for proper load application. High quality materials are used (such as aluminum in the pneumatic cylinder and stainless steel in the cylinder rod) to guarantee a long life.

Economical to Own and Operate

This simple and rugged Brinell testing system comes at a very reasonable price.
