When producing plastic pipes for infrastructure, the quality of the plastic must be good enough to withstand high levels of stress over long periods of usage. To ensure that plastic pipes are suitable for the task, Qualitest offers two state-of-the-art testing instruments for pipe manufacturers, research laboratories, and inspection institutions.
When selecting plastic materials for high-quality products, such as automobiles and airplanes, manufacturers must account for their sensitivity to high temperatures.
Qualitest is attending ARABLAB 2016 - the Largest Annual Trade Show in the World for Laboratory Science & Instrumentation.
If plastic pipes are not made properly, hydrostatic pressure can cause them to burst. To determine the resistance of thermoplastic pipes, a hydrostatic pressure testing system subjects the pipes to constant internal water pressure at a constant temperature. Qualitest's Hydrostatic Pressure Tester provides user-friendly and accurate results to test the strength of thermoplastic pipes.
The QualiPERM Blaine Air Permeability Tester is the ideal instrument for measuring the fineness of the cement, which companies do to determine such qualities such as speed of setting and rate of strength development.
Companies use several different methods for hardness testing, the most common being Brinell, Rockwell, Vickers, Leeb.
To study the properties of materials as they change temperature, companies often use a thermal analyzer on product samples. There are many types of thermal analyzers, spanning different properties that can be measured as a sample undergoes various material changes.
An x-ray fluorescence spectrometer is an instrument used for chemically analyzing rocks, minerals, and sediments. As such, it is a highly valuable tool in a number of industries, including precious metal and ornamental processing industries, as well as banks and shops that sell gold and other ornamental metals.
A production line in a manufacturing facility is an extremely hectic, demanding place. There are many small objects and pieces of equipment that must be kept managed and organized to ensure that operations run smoothly and that tools remain close at hand.
Qualitest’s Frazier Air Permeability Tester enables companies to measure the air permeability of a wide range of products including textile materials, paper, air and water filters, foam, and metal screens. These machines use a calibrated venturi nozzle testing method, combined with a wide differential pressure range, to achieve reliable and repeatable testing.
To study metals, laboratory technicians must measure and view the surfaces of material samples using a metallurgical microscope. For capturing such surface images and video, technicians turn to the metallograph.
To determine the notch toughness of steel products, laboratory technicians conduct Charpy impact tests. These tests create V and U notches in a material sample to gauge how much energy it absorbs when fractured.
Polishing metals for industrial applications is about more than just appearance: this process is necessary to prevent corrosion and oxidation of metal products, which improves their lifespan and durability. Metallography polishers are sophisticated machines that are used to polish metal samples in order to establish
Qualitest provides many companies with its state-of-the-art hardness testers, but none are as portable and convenient as our Leeb Portable Rebound Hardness Tester, known as the QualiTip.
The Vicat test is used by industry for testing materials that have no real melting points, such as cement and mortar.
