Phase II force gauges are designed and engineered to achieve WORLD-CLASS tension/compression measurements. Heavy duty construction allows the force gauges to undergo rough handling in any environment, while providing for extremely sensitive and highly accurate readings. The Phase II force gauges include a direct dual scale reading in both lbf and kgf, eliminating the need for two separate gauges in the shop. Force gauges can be hand-held or mounted to an optional force gauge test stand. All force gauges come as a complete kit, containing 5 measuring attachments and plastic carrying case. Numerous models are available to cover a complete range of force capacities.
|Capacity||2.25lb / 1kg||4.5lb / 2kg||11lb / 4.9kg||22.5lb / 10.2kg||45lb / 20.4kg||110lb / 49.8kg|
|Working Temp Range||50-75°F|
|Relative Humidity||15-80% RH|
Phase II force gauges can be used in all types of tension and compression force testing applications. All force gauges are able to capture the peak force in both tension and compression and have both inch/metric units of measurement on dial face. Force gauge capacities are available from 2lbs to 100lbs. Phase II force gauges may be handheld or used with a force test stand and gripping fixtures for greater versatility.
Force gauges are measuring instruments that are used to quantify the magnitude of the force applied to an object during test or operation. Force gauges are used in a wide variety of industries and applications, most typically in research and development, production operations, or for test and quality control purposes. A common use of force gauges is to perform push or pull tests. For this reason, force gauges are also known as push pull force gauges or tension and compression force gauges.
Force gauges come in a variety of capacities and resolutions.
Force gauges that apply and indicate force are in general use in many industries. Practices have been written to provide a blueprint for the force verification of these force gauges. A necessary element is the use of devices whose force characteristics are known to be traceable to national standards. ASTM describes how these force gauges are to be calibrated. The procedures are useful to users of force gauges, manufacturers and providers of force measuring instruments, calibration laboratories that provide the calibration of the instruments and the documents of traceability, and service organizations that use the force gauges to verify testing machines.
