  • Cupping Tester

    PCE-CPT 20 - PCE Instruments

    PCE-CPT 20 is a cupping tester, or coating flexibility tester, used for testing the adhesion, elongation and deformability of paints, lacquers, varnishes, powder coatings and other surface coatings on metal sheets. Used in manufacturing production, paint shop and quality control applications, the PCE-CPT 20 cupping tester aids in determining coating strength, durability and elasticity. A mandatory test in Qualicoat and QIB accredited quality control laboratories, a cupping test, also referred to as an Erichsen test or dent test, uses a spherical punch to deform a sample. This deformation results in a cup-like bulge. When using the PCE-CPT 20 to perform a cupping test in accordance with the ISO 1520 standard, the sample should be placed coating side up so that the 20 mm spherical punch presses against the uncoated underside of the metal sheet. The cupping test is terminated when small cracks and/or detachments are observed on the bulged part of the sample. The PCE-CPT 20 cupping tester's easy-to-read display shows the bulge deformation distances that can be used to determine the coating's flexibility rating.

  • Sound Level Meters

    PCE Instruments

    A sound level meter is a measuring instrument used to assess noise or sound levels by measuring sound pressure. Often referred to as a sound pressure level (SPL) meter, decibel (dB) meter, noise meter or noise dosimeter, asound level meter uses a microphone to capture sound. The sound is then evaluated within the sound level meter and acoustic measurement values are shown on the display of the sound level meter. The most common unit of acoustic measurement for sound is the decibel (dB); however, some sound level meter devices also determine the equivalent continuous sound level (Leq) and other acoustic parameters. With a portable sound level meter, industrial hygiene and workplace safety professionals can measure sound levels in multiple locations to ensure environmental conditions fall within recommended exposure limits (RELs). Some sound level meter devices can be permanently installed for continuous monitoring of sound levels at a work or job site. PCE sound level meter products are lightweight, easy-to-use and manufactured in accordance with the highest industrial standards.

  • Wind Meters

    PCE Instruments

    According to the type of application, wind meters are made as hot wire wind-meters or pocket weather wind-meters, all of these wind-meters can measure air velocity and air pressure. Wind meters for the measurement of air velocity and air pressure. The measurement results can be stored in memory of the device (depending on the model). There are a lot of different instruments available in our stores. These wind meters are ideal for taking quick or constant measurements. Wind meters for measuring air velocity and volume flow are available here. The pocket-sized wind meters are implemented as hot-wire wind meters, vane wind meters, cup wind meters or portable, waterproof wind meters depending on the particular application.

  • Infrared Thermometers

    PCE Instruments

    Our infrared thermometers make it possible to measure a temperature without contact by way of determining an object emitting infrared radiation. Here you will find Infrared Thermometers for measuring temperature without contact and contain a targeting light to ensure the correct surface area is being measured. An infrared thermometer can only measure the temperature of exposed surfaces and not through glass. Some infrared thermometers possess a preset emissivity value, and others allow the user to choose the emissivity value depending on the surface material being measured, whether it's paper, wood or metallic surfaces.

  • Pressure Gauges

    PCE Instruments
