CQI is offers hardness testing as one of our many testing methods. Using a single hammer blow we measure the resulting impression and plug the results into the analytic computer program to determine hardness accurately.

Hardness testing is used to provide information about metallic materials correlating to tensile strength, wear resistance, ductility and or other physical characteristics of metallic materials. This information is useful for the selection of materials and quality control for acceptance of materials.

Applicable products to test are:

· Buildings

· Bridges

· Industrial Structures

· Machinery

· Cranes

· Rail & Road Vehicles

· Ships & Floating Marine Structures

· Mobile Drilling Units

· Industrial Pipe

· Pipelines & Piping

· Pressure Vessels
