  • Durometer Calibration per ASTM D2240

  Upon receipt, the durometer's dimensional characteristics are measured, using 50X maginification the indentor extension is verified and a visual inspection is performed.  As found readings are taken, adjustments made  if necessary.  The internal mechanism is checked for defects such as  ( loose or missing parts, nicks, burrs, that may interfere with the action ).  Spring loading requirements are verified by "Direct Loading" procedure on Riverview's duro-calibrator.  The unit is cleaned, As Left readings taken and final conditions are noted on the calibration report.
