Qualitest offers a full range of Force and Universal Testing Machineswith diverse line of grips and fixtures for force testing of Steel Pipes. Our comprehensive range of UTMs, along with our extensive range of grips/fixtures, load cells, extensometers, offer the best price/quality ratio models on the market. High quality, accurate and reliable models with reasonable prices. The Q-Series Universal Testing Machines range is designed for quick and reliable tensile and compressiontests on steel pipes.
DWTT Drop Weight Tear Tester
The most comprehensive and high-end range of DWTT Drop Weight Tear Testers for measuring the fracture characteristics and fracture ductility of steel specimens according to API 5L, EN 10274, ASTM-E 436, ‘Pellini’ and much more. Our DWTT range is extremely robust and stands up to the requirements of high energy testing and is ideally suited to both quality control and research applications. These DWTT systems have a pneumatic sample loader which places the specimen quickly and accurately on the anvil prior to impact. This ensures compliance with cycle times as stipulated by the relevant standards and ensures full operator safety. The DWTT range offered by Qualitest accommodates impact energies up to 100,000J and specimens up to 50mm thick.
Pendulum Impact Testers
Qualitest offers Charpy / Izod Impact Testers with capacities up to 800J meeting and exceeding ASTM E23, ISO, DIN, JIS, ISO standard requirements. The key benefits of this line of top technology models are price competitiveness, extremely high precision and durability, automatic motorized lifting of the pendulum hammer to optimize cycle times, flexibility, efficiency for low/high temperature testing, and much more. Optionally we offer temperature chambers, automated sample handling, centering device, Charpy sample preparation and broaching machines for preparation of notched bar specimens.
Whether you are testing the hardness of a pipe section in Rockwell, Brinell, Micro or Vickers scales, or you are measuring the hardness of HAZ Heat Affected Zone on a pipe weld joint, or require automated Inline hardness testing systems for your pipe production line, Qualitest offers the widest range of hardness testers on the market, that can be used as portable, benchtop or inline automated configurations to measure Rockwell, Brinell, Micro Vickers, or case depth hardness of such samples. Any customers that don’t find Ultrasonic hardness testers reliable and accurate for their application, have chosen Handy Eastest as the most versatile portable hardness tester for their precise hardness measurement of HAZ (Heat Affected Zone) for weld joints, and many more.
Qualitest covers a complete and competitive range of Metallography instruments and consumables for Metallographic Sample Preparation, from manual machines to sophisticated microprocessor controlled preparation systems. This comprehensive range includes abrasive and precision cutters, mounting presses, grinding and polishing systems, petrography equipment, spectroscopy sample preparation systems, consumables as well as metallurgical microscopes.
Portable Metallurgical Microscopes for In-Situ Analysis of Steel Pipes on the field or in plant
SM 500 Metalloscope is a self-contained portable metallurgical microscope ideally used for metallurgical inspection of steel pipes in laboratory or in-site. With fully handheld design and unique magnetic clamp, SM 500 can be mounted directly against the surface of ferrous metals at any angles for non-destructive examination on flat, curved as well as other complicated surfaces.
SM 500 also can be used with digital camera or CCD image processing system to download metallurgical image on to PC for data transfer, analysis, storage and printout.
Portable Digital Microscope
For in-situ or non-destructive analysis of steel pipe, DG3 is the ideal inspection tool that offers maximum flexibility and captures high resolution images that can provide critical data for further analysis. DG3 is extremely popular in the pipe industry. Qualitest also offers other benchtop configurations of Metallurgical Microscopes.
Pipescan MFL Corrosion Detection Pipe Scanner
Pipescan is an easy to use, cost effective, portable, magnetic flux leakage inspection system for the detection of random internal corrosion in pipe runs. The latest magnetic material coupled with a unique mechanical design enables coverage of all pipe diameters from 6" to 96" / 50 mm to 2.4 metres with just two adjustable scanning heads. Unlike some other inspection methods, MFL is not affected by product flowing through the pipe runs so surveys can be carried out both on-line and off-line. Use of Pipescan, with its high probability of detection, to locate actual internal corrosion, coupled with A scan ultrasonic monitoring of corrosion growth, provides a cost effective accurate system for the determination of plant integrity.
Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors
Our advanced, easy to use, compact, rugged and affordable range of Ultrasonic Flaw Detectors can quickly and accurately detect various defects (cracks, impurity, air holes, discontinuity) in pipes and other work pieces non-destructively. This line meets and exceeds a wide range of applications such as inspection and quality control in production, welding, material processing and petrochemical industries.
Holiday / Porosity Detectors
Our Compact DC Detector is small and lightweight Holiday / Porosity Detector with a clip-on battery pack, and features: digital display of applied voltage; constant test current, fully adjustable voltage and sensitivity controls. It can be used in most applications including pipelines, steel structures and tankwork. Commonly known as holiday detectors, spark testers or jeepers. Complies with the requirements of ASTM and AS3894.1-2002. CE Compliant.
