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.

ASTM E10 – 18 Standard Test Method for Brinell Hardness of Metallic Materials
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 this standard refers to forces in kgf units.
Brinell Hardness Standardizing Machines.
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. Portable Brinell hardness testing machines that cannot meet the direct verification requirements and can only be verified by indirect verification requirements are covered in Test Method E The result is in the form of a hardness number between and with a higher number indicating a harder material.
Brinell testing machines Above you can find our Brinell testing systems.
The Brinell Hardness Test: ASTM E 10
Standardization of Brinell Hardness Indenters. The tested surface must be relatively smooth and flat. Above you can find our Brinell testing systems. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and brinfll practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Don’t hesitate to aks our sales engineers for more advice on our product range. APM Testing provides A2LA accredited services for Brinell hardness testing at a fair price, with prompt delivery, and a detailed test report. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
Although Brinell loads can be found ranging from 1kgf to kgf, most common scales use a testforce of kgf to Kgf and a 10mm ball indenter, so that the resulting indentation averages out most surface and sub-surface inconsistencies.

Brinell Hardness Testing
Brinell testing often use a very high test load Kgf and bdinell 10mm ball indenter so that the resulting indentation averages out most brienll and sub-surface inconsistencies. Most commonly used to test materials that f10 a structure that is too coarse or that have a surface that is too rough to be tested using another test method, e. How it works A Bronell hardness testing machine makes an indentation in a material, the resulting impression, the permanent width of indentation, is measured across at least two diameters.
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. Material testing you can trust since The average diameter measurement can be converted to a Brinell hardness number via the Brinell formula or a conversion chart based on the formula. Smaller samples can sometimes be tested. 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.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Brinell hardness gives good results for non-uniform materials such as castings since it has a large indent size.
