Metallurgical Testing

We’ll Discover the Weakness. And Help You Learn from It.

This is the closest our lab comes to the type of forensics you might see on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Our engineers and technicians, armed with expertise in chemical analysis and metallurgy and broad industry knowledge, scour your equipment for failures. They’re like detectives. They test. They question. They analyze. And they don’t stop until they have the answers you need to understand why your equipment or part has failed. They use high-powered electron microscopes to measure accurately down to a billionth of an inch.

Our capabilities include metallurgical testing and evaluations, mechanical testing, consultation on failure analysis, materials selection, corrosion control, heat treating and more. See below for a comprehensive list of services.
