The PH Tool IIW-Type 1 Block is used for calibration of shear and longitudinal transducers, and verification of shear wedge exit point and refracted angle. It can also be used for resolution and sensitivity checking. It includes a 4.0” radius on one end and a 1.0” radius by .060” deep. Also includes a .060” diameter and a 2.0” diameter hole. The IIW-Type 1 Block is in accordance with International Institute of Welding and ASTM E164 specifications. Dimensions are 12.0” x 4.0” x 1.0”. A metric version is available.
Available in aluminum, steel, stainless steel and special alloy.
Standard test blocks are non-representative tools, meaning that they are not manufactured from actual parts. Rather, they are a simplified design that contains manufactured discontinuities such as holes, angles, radii and more. Standard test blocks serve the purpose of standardizing and calibrating test equipment to ensure it is functioning properly.
All test blocks ship with a NIST-traceable certification report stating that the block meets applicable specifications.
