Portable Hardness Testers - Basics Back
"Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a do-everything portable hardness tester.  Each tester is good for some applications, but poor at others."

     If you are looking for a portable hardness tester and are confused by the number and types of testers available, you are in good company.  The variety of testers available today is over-whelming, making the choice of instrument difficult.  Truth be told, each type of tester fills a specific niche.  However, none can be considered to be a "universal" do-everything hardness testing instrument. 
     Each instrument is very good at some applications,  but poor at others.  Finding out what will work for your applications can be time consuming, and frustrating.  The wrong choice can be an expensive mistake.

     Radiatronics is here to help you find the most suitable instrument for your application.  With over thirty years of experience, we have seen what works and what does not, and we are happy to share our experience with you.
     Demo instruments, brochures and pricing are available for all instruments (and more) referenced in this guide.

     Please let us know about your application and we will help you find the best instrument for your requirements.
