Material Testing Laboratory

We have a fully certified (recognised by the Technical Supervision Office) Material Testing Laboratory. We offer several dozen specialist tests, including visual, penetration, magnetic-particle, ultrasonic, radiographic, metallographic, and destructive testing.

Thanks to our extensive base which includes modern equipment from renowned brands, we are capable of carrying out even the most complex tests, as well as to evaluate and analyse the technical condition of technical elements and devices.

Non-destructive testing
  • Visual examination, including the use of endoscopy systems
  • Penetration tests
  • Magnetic particle inspection
  • Ultrasonic testing of welded joints and metallurgical products
  • Radiographic inspection
  • Ultrasonic thickness measurements with a flaw detector and ultrasonic thickness gauge
  • Hardness measurements using stationary and portable hardness testers
  • Length measurements
Destructive testing
  • Tensile testing of welded joints and steel mill products up to 100KN
  • Bend testing of welded joints and steel mill products
  • Impact testing of welded joints and steel mill products in the range up to 300 J, in the range of ambient temperatures and up to -50oC
  • Break tests
Pipeline testing
  • The diagnostic tests were performed using non-destructive methods
  • Metallographic examination, by means of matrix replicas, using an optical microscope and a scanning electron microscope
  • Destructive testing of samples taken from the pipelines, with determination of the level of mechanical properties, at ambient and operating temperatures
  • Strength calculations for pipeline elements exposed to the impact of forces resulting from the reacting supports and fixtures, calculation of the TRIFEX self-compensation capacity
  • Surveying measurements of pipeline positions in cold and hot conditions
  • Working analyses and assessment of the technical condition of the pipeline fixtures
  • Analyses of the technical condition of the pressure elements, with an opinion on their suitability for further operation
Metallographic tests
  • Macroscopic testing of welded joints and steel mill products
  • Macroscopic examination of welded joints and steel mill products using an optical microscope and a scanning electron microscope
