Summary
The Institute of Applied Physics offers consumers portable TPC hardness testers for non-destructive testing of the physical and mechanical properties of materials in industrial production under amsnufacturing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
Description
Portable hardness testers TPTs provide the possibility of non-destructive testing of physical and mechanical
properties of materials in industrial production to increase the competitiveness of products of enterprises of the Republic of Belarus.

Many years of experience in use at enterprises of the Republic of Belarus have shown that portable hardness testers developed at the Institute of Applied Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus are competitive and are not inferior in characteristics to similar hardness testers made abroad.

The use of portable hardness testers makes it possible to ensure high quality of products of industrial enterprises of the Republic of Belarus.

Portable hardness testers TPTs-5, TPTs-4M, TPTs-7 are designed for non-destructive measurement of the hardness of products made of carbon structural steels on the Brinell, Rockwell and Vickers scales in the range of 90–450 HB, 20–70 HRC, 100–950 HV. Allows you to evaluate the hardness of other metal materials: alloy steels, cast irons, non-ferrous metals and alloys. Measurement objects can be pressure vessels for various purposes (reactors, steam generators, collectors, boiler drums, gas tanks, etc.), turbine and generator rotors, pipelines, rolling rolls, crankshafts, gears, parts of various vehicles, industrial semi-finished products (castings, forgings) , sheets), etc.

Hardness testers can be used to measure the hardness of the surface layer of metal in mechanical engineering, metallurgy, energy, shipbuilding and railway transport, in the aerospace and oil and gas industries, repair, installation and service organizations, etc.

Portable hardness testers are environmentally friendly.

Additional information is posted in the Album of promising developments of organizations of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for the real sector of the economy here (in Russian).
Advantages and Innovations
Analogues: hardness tester "Constant TD", TEMP hardness testers LLC NPP "Techno-test", dynamic hardness tester MET D1 / hardness tester MET-D1A (all – Russian Federation) (in Russian).

A distinctive feature of the instruments is the ability to carry out measurements in all generally accepted scales (HB, HRC, HV, HRB, HS, Rm), including measurements on products with a wall thickness of 5.5 mm or more and a weight of 1.5 kg without lapping to massive basis. Low impact energy (2 mJ) allows the use of hardness testers to control the finishing of mating surfaces.

With the latest modification of the TPTs-7 hardness tester, it is possible to use a companion application for Android devices, which significantly expands the functionality. The application allows you to save measurement results in the form of a spreadsheet, create photographs of the controlled product, use geolocation using GPS data, create custom calibrations, transfer data to other users, etc.

Additional comments
The Institute of Applied Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is the only academic institute, both in the republic and abroad, specializing in the field of physics of non-destructive testing and technical diagnostics.

The main scientific fields of the Institute:
- Physics of non-destructive testing;
- Development of methods and means of non-destructive testing and technical diagnostics of materials, products and technological processes;
- Creation of scientific foundations of information technologies for non-destructive testing and technical diagnostics.

Non-destructive testing methods developed at the institute:
- Methods of ultrasonic flaw detection, structuroscopy, thickness measurement of surface hardened layers;
- Capillary control method;
- Pulse magnetic control method;
- Methods of magnetic thickness measurement of coatings;
- Thermopower method;
- Eddy current methods of flaw detection and structuroscopy;
- Method of magnetic noise structuroscopy;
- Methods for monitoring the magnetic characteristics of soft magnetic materials, magnetic fields and residual magnetization;
- Methods of radio wave flaw detection, structuroscopy, thickness measurement;
- Contact-dynamic method for monitoring the physical and mechanical characteristics of materials;
- Methods of image reconstruction in x-ray tomography.

Solved applied tasks:
- Control of defects in the continuity of parts, blanks and structural elements (defectoscopy);
- Control of the structure and physical and mechanical characteristics of materials;
- Control of the geometric parameters of products, coatings and surface hardened layers;
- Control of the stress-strain state of metal structures;
- Technical diagnostics of objects.

Applied developments of the institute are characterized by a wide range of scientific and technical problems to be solved, which are of a diversified nature, and the developed modern methods and means of non-destructive testing and technical diagnostics are used in energy, space technology, metallurgy, auto, tractor and agricultural engineering, motor building, construction , welding industry, electronics, petrochemistry, railway and road transport, pipeline transport, bridge building, aircraft building, repair services, utilities, medicine, sports, forensics, etc.

The institute has two laboratories accredited by the State Standard of the Republic of Belarus: a testing laboratory for non-destructive testing and a verification laboratory.

Objects of control - Parts, blanks, castings, rolled products, forgings, welded joints, building and other structures made of metal, concrete, plastics, composite materials, pipelines, boilers, tanks, metal structures of hoisting and transport machines, products made of rubber materials, foundations, road coatings, machines and mechanisms, electrical machines, etc.

The Institute of Applied Physics is the only academic institute both in the Republic of Belarus and abroad that specializes in the field of physics of non-destructive testing and technical diagnostics. The results of research on the development of the scientific foundations of the theory of magnetism, electromagnetic, ultrasonic, radio wave, contact-dynamic, capillary and other methods of non-destructive testing brought fame to the institute. Scientists of the institute have created dozens of new types of methods and means of control, protected by copyright certificates and patents from the leading countries of the world, introduced at many industrial enterprises of the republic and abroad. The Institute maintains active international relations, being one of the founders of the World Federation of Non-Destructive Testing Centers (the headquarters of the World Federation is located in the USA). Representatives of the Institute traditionally head the Belarusian Association of Non-Destructive Testing and Technical Diagnostics, which is part of the European Federation of Non-Destructive Testing (EFNDT).
