Destructive testing includes a number of invasive mechanical, corrosion resistance and chemical tests, that give deep insights and help determine the product integrityby completely destroying the specimen and rendering it unusable. The specimen/product is broken down to its failure point and the performance is monitored closely using highend equipment.
For example, if a welded joint in a critical equipment is not tested for the load it can bear, it can prove fatal. Not only will the welded joint pose a safety threat, it will also add to your recurring repairs and overhauling cost, thus, affecting your overall profitability. It is critical to know exactly at which stress level the welded joint will give in. Destructive testing provides important real-time data about how, when and at what point the product will fail. The material, structure and metal composition is also probed closely based on the test requirements. The findings are then compared against the existing regulations and quality guidelines and the gaps are identified.
Corrections and replacements are adapted in the design, structure and materials used. Destructive testing is costeffective and highly recommended for organisations that undertake mass production and can easily spare a few specimens for testing by just incurring minimal costs.
We are a one-stop solution provider for different kinds of destructive tests, all of which are conducted under one single roof. Our fully equipped state-of-the-art non-destructive and destructive testing lab and highly experienced and certified technical lab experts and on-site inspectors ensure that your products, assets, components, assemblies, materials, equipment and systems continue to operate safely, effectively and efficiently for a long time. We carry out certification and accreditation to ASME, API, ASTM, ISO, EN, NACE and BIS standards.
Our sophisticated lab is equipped with latest and advanced DT machinery with innovative testing software. This ensures accuracy of test results, easy repeatability of tests and prompt service to customers. Our lab has the capability to carry out different types of hardness tests, tensile tests, weld tests, compression tests, impact tests, fracture toughness tests, fatigue tests, creep tests and others. We also undertake all the critical corrosion tests and testing of various materials for metallurgical composition and verification of alloys.Difficult to probe objects like paint, soft-tissue, thin films and coats or specimens with a different dimensional requirement (complex shaped objects) other than those stated in the ASME, API, ASTM, ISO, EN, NACE and BIS standards are also carried out at our lab. Based on the customer requirements across sectors, we design customised destructive tests on our purpose-built test equipment.
Our countrywide network of offices and pan India presence assures a timely collection of samples from your doorstep and quick transfer to our destructive testing lab. Whether you want to analyse the grain structure of the metal or metal alloy at a molecular level or determine the strength of a weld under a certain degree of stress, our destructive testing lab offers many permutations and combinations of testing methods that ensure that you get accurate results. We undertake project management and consultancy and based on the findings our experts will guide you to go for the right material composition.
For excellent results, wherever required, we even offer a combination of NDT and DT services for asset optimisation, quality assurance and cost saving.
Validation and verification through destructive testing is highly accurate as it disintegrates the specimen/product and gives real-time data about its mechanical and chemical properties like strength, hardness, load bearing capacity, corrosion propensity, elemental and alloy composition. As the name suggests, destructive testing is accomplished by making the specimen/part fail deliberately. It is a cost-efficient and faster method of deciphering the product quality. Maintaining a sound and persistent product integrity can help you establish market credibility and gain consumer trust.
Destructive testing puts the specimen through a number of critical tests to gain insights that can save costs, reduce safety incidents, avoid failures and product rejections. Through destructive testing services you can benefit from improved customer satisfaction with a faster turnaround time and reduced time to market.
