SWL in Southampton, Hampshire, have the capability to complete both non-destructive and destructive testing types depending on your requirements. Whether you’re looking to test samples under great stress or want corrosion testing, we have several test rigs, one of which is one of the largest in the UK.
Destructive and Non-Destructive Testing
Destructive testing is where samples are subjected to different loads and stress, which enables us to determine at which point that the material eventually yields and cracks. The results gained are then compared to regulations and/or quality guidelines.
Destructive tests are best when used together with our non-destructive methods – this combination gives the best information on materials and welds. Non-destructive tests show if cracks, corrosion, or other faults exist. Destructive tests in turn indicate how and when the objects are in danger of breaking down or failing.
We are able to:
Tensile test up to 800 tons
Compression test up to 200 tons
Break test up to 100 tons
Live load test up to 160 tons
