ATS offers many of the Mechanical Testing Services performed in our lab at the client's job locations as needed.

Our on-site capabilities include Pressure Testing, Load Testing, Anchor Testing, Hardness Testing, Metallography and Certified Weld Inspections.

Pressure & Leak Testing

ATS has the capabilities to perform Pressure Testing in the field ranging from vacuum to 40,000 psig. With these capabilities, we are able to perform Hydrostatic Burst and Proof Testing on various items such as Hydraulic Systems or Headers. ATS also has the capabilities to perform helium mass spectrometer leak detection (HMSLD) testing in the field.

Load Testing

ATS also performs Load Testing in the field; some of our capabilities include dead weight testing, floor testing and rail testing.

Dead Weight Testing is not limited to, but includes testing items such as overhead cranes and all types of building floors.

Rail Testing includes testing stairwell handrails as well as balcony rails for integrity.

Anchor Bolt Testing/Rebar Testing

Anchor bolts are extensively used on all types of projects from standard buildings to dams and nuclear power plants. ATS has performed numerous Anchor Pulls including balcony railing anchor bolts, column anchors in large buildings and embedded rebars.

Hardness Testing

Hardness Testing can be used in the field to verify heat treat condition of the component and conversion to an approximate tensile strength also allows the customer to non destructively and cost effectively determine the strength of their material.


ATS can perform Metallographic Analysis in the field, allowing the customer to non destructively analyze the microstructure of their material and/or determine grain size.

Weld Inspections

ATS has the capabilities of visually inspecting welds in the field to determine conformance to specifications. Our Certified Weld Inspectors (C.W.I.’s) have inspected welds on a variety of structures and components ranging from cell phone towers to valve bodies.
