Product Description

Shore ceased all production operations in 2012 and their products are no longer available. CCSi continues to support Shore equipment in regard to service, calibration and ISO/IEC 17025 certification.


The Shore® Model CV (Constant Velocity) operating stand improves the precision and accuracy of test determinations, in comparison to other Shore® non—automatic operating stands, by controlling rate of descent of the durometer, hence the force applied.

The most common causes for EV (equipment variation) or repeatability, and AV (appraiser variation) or reproducibility, in test determinations are inconsistencies in the introduction of the durometer to the test specimen.

The incorporation of a hydraulic dashpot, directly below the rack-and-pinion release mechanism, consistently controls the rate of descent, and therefore the force, of the durometer to the specimen. The unique ball-and-socket durometer mounting assembly also assures parallel application of the durometer to the specimen.

The Shore® Model CV constant velocity operating stand, by greatly reducing these variables, is the superior choice in Shore® non—automatic operating stands. It is may be used with virtually all models of Shore® durometers, and is adaptable to those of other manufacturer’s.
