Testing Services

  • Let us do tests for you!
    • Hydrostatic Burst Testing
      • Utilizing fluid, we perform a destructive pressure test to find the overload capacity of cylinders. With strain gauges we are able to record expansion and stress throughout the test.
      • What we learn from Burst testing
        • Max burst pressure
        • The safety factor specified in applicable standards
        • The failure mode
        • Confirm designing margin of the product
  • Fatigue Testing
    • Fatigue testing involves cyclic loading of COPV’s to a prescribed maximum and minimum until a fatigue failure occurs, or until a predetermined number of loading cycles have been applied. We are happy to help you any way we can.
  • Autofrettage and Hydro Testing
    • We autofrettage and hydro test all CNG tanks we manufacture to ensure reliability and ensure CNG products are in accordance with laws and regulations.
  • Thermal Analysis
    • With our TA DSC 25 we have the ability to better understand material structure. We can easily measure thermal events such as:
      • glass transition (Tg),
      • melting,
      • crystallization,
      • cure reactions,
      • onset of oxidation,
      • heat transitions (enthalpy)
      • Expanding on DSC Heat Flow measurements to determine reaction kinetics,
      • specific heat capacity,
      • compatibility and stability of blends and alloys,
      • effect of aging,
      • impact of additives on crystallization,
      • and more
  • With these measurements we can better understand the structural properties of the products manufactured and ensure the highest quality products.
