WHAT WE DO

Hardness Testing

CQI 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 our analytic computer program to accurately determine hardness.

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. Hardness Testing is used to assess:

Buildings
Bridges
Industrial Structures
Machinery
Cranes
Rail & Road Vehicles
Ships & Floating Marine Structures
Mobile Drilling Units
Industrial Pipe
Pipelines & Piping
Pressure Vessels
Boilers
Heat Exchangers
Tanks
