Laboratory is focused on assessment of through-hardening of materials using Wolfson quenching test. Laboratory is equipped with pneumatic facilities to manipulate the samples and with muffle furnace with programmed heating. Time history of temperatures measured on samples by K-thermocouple evaluated using specialized data acquisition unit NI-USB 9211.
