Mechanical Testing

Our CVN Charpy Impact Machine is NIST verified annually.  We’re able to provide cold condition testing down to -320° f and generally have next day turn around on all of our material testing.

Hydrostatic Testing

We now have two Hydrostatic testing units

The Barbee P300VR Hydrostatic Tester and the Barbee P200VR High Pressure pump. Our new hydrostatic testing equipment is capable of testing pipes, fittings and vessels up to 33,600 psi, and provides accurate, minute by minute test data.

Tensile Testing

Our Riehle Tensile Tester is capable of applying forces up to 200,000 lb. Its fully integrated analyzer records force, ultimate strength, yield strength and elongation.  With this machine we are able to provide material verification, weld testing (PQR) and equipment certification

Hardness Testing

Our metals lab is equipped with a range of hardness testing machines. These units include a Rockwell, Vickers, Knoop and Brinell Hardness tester.  We’re also able to test larger pieces with our Telebrineller portable testing equipment.
