Inspec Testing offers the following destructive testing services:
Tension testing is performed to determine the following parameters in welds and materials:
- Ultimate Tensile Strength
- Yield Strength
- Reduction of Area
Inspec Testing can provide tension testing at loads up to 400,000 lbs.
Compression testing can be applied to various materials, including metals and concrete.
Inspec Testing can conduct test compressive strength tests up to 400,000 lbs.
Macro Etch Test
Macro etching involves the application of an acidic solution to the surface of a metal to reveal the heterogeneity of metals and alloys. For welds, macro etch testing is used to verify weld quality.
Inspec Testing has performed macro etch testing for a wide variety of applications, including:
- Determination of weld sample soundness & quality.
- Detection of decarburization in heat treated metals.
- Identification of weld deposit locations and presence of dissimilar filler metals.
Fillet Weld Break Test
The fillet weld break test is used to determine the soundness of deposited fillet welds. Fillet weld break tests are normally accomplished as part of the qualification process for welders, weld procedures and/or weld consumables.
Inspec Testing provides fillet break tests in accordance with a wide range of qualification standards.
Guided Bend Test
Guided bend tests are used to ensure the soundness and ductility of welds and metallic samples. Guided bend tests are normally accomplished as part of the qualification process for welders, weld procedures and/or weld consumables and wrought materials.
Inspec Testing provides guided bend tests in accordance with a wide range of qualification standards.
Rockwell Hardness Test
This test determines the hardness by measuring the depth of penetration of an indenter under a large load compared to the penetration made by a preload.
In addition to our laboratory based indenter, Inspec Testing offers field hardness testing using Leeb hardness test equipment.
Charpy Impact Test
This is a standardized high strain-rate test which determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture.
Inspec Testing has the ability to conduct Charpy V-notch tests up to 240 ft-lb.
