Validating destructive test methods
Hardness testing Hardness testing assesses the impact of the metal or alloy to permanent indentation, and the depth or size of the indent is measured to determine a hardness value.
There are several different hardness tests and we use the Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell methods.
Therefore, it is essential to receive results well before the end of their shelf-life.
Meanwhile, numerous scientists and companies have been working on the development of suitable rapid alternative microbiological methods for the faster detection and identification of microorganisms.
As a result, various systems with different methodologies have been launched: PCR based, MALDI-To F Mass Spectrometry, flow cytometry, etc. (2011) outlined in an Overview of rapid microbiological methods (RMMs) evaluated, validated and implemented for microbiological quality control: “RMMs hold a lot of potential to accelerate and even improve microbiological quality control.
We have a range of tensile testing machines and can apply loads from a few newtons to 1,000 kilo newtons, and test up to 600°c.In addition, we have in-house machine shops to produce the test specimen for testing in accordance with British, American and international standards.Impact testing Impact testing measures the material’s ability to absorb energy when fractured at high velocity.Our non-destructive testing services include flaw detection and monitoring such as delamination and occurrence of voids.
We also provide examination of induced failures that are application-specific.These are in place to ensure that our clients are helped to improve manufacturing processes and qualify materials.
