GRINDOMETERS FINENESS OF GRIND GAUGES

The TQC Grindometers or Fineness of Grind Gauges are precision instruments to determine particle size and fineness of many materials like paints, lacquers, pigments, filler, chocolate etc..

Most TQC Grindometers have double grooves with graded slopes graduated in three different parameters: µm (microns), NS (Hegman) and PCU (North).

 

Material:

Material of main block
ASAB Stavax ESR medical grade stainless tool steel.
Sub Zero Vacuum hardened (+1756°C  to -70°C), hardness HRC 55 (through hardened*)
Surface treatment: polished
Overall accuracy: ± 2 µm.

Material of scraper
ASAB Stavax ESR medical grade stainless tool steel.
Sub Zero Vacuum hardened (+1756°C  to -70°C), hardness HRC 55, (through hardened*) & tempered.
Surface treatment: black chromed.
Overall straightness: ± 2 µm.

*Through hardening versus Case-hardening or surface hardening.
Through-hardening means the metal uniformly is hardened throughout the piece. Case- or surface (face / frame) hardening only hardens the top layer of the metal. Once the top layer is degraded excessive wear and tear will occur on the product limiting its life time and affecting accuracy.

Complies with standards:

ASTM D 1210, ASTM D 1316, JIS K 5600-2-5, ISO 1524, DIN EN 21524, BS 3900-C6

Dimensions:

The base: 175x60x12mm with 120mm groove length
The scraper: 75x38x8mm shaped to be hold easily.
