ATS' Mechanical Field Testing Capabilities
Our on-site capabilities include Pressure Testing, Helium Leak Testing, Load Testing, Anchor Pull Testing, Hardness Testing, Metallography and Certified Weld Inspections.
ATS also performs Load Testing in the field; some of our capabilities include dead weight testing, floor testing and handrail testing:
Hardness Testing can be used in the field to verify heat treat condition of the component, and also evaluate the effectiveness of post weld heat treatments. Conversion to an approximate tensile strength also allows the customer to nondestructively and cost effectively determine the strength of their material.
ATS can perform Metallographic Analysis in the field, allowing the customer to nondestructively analyze the microstructure of their material and/or determine its grain size.
ATS has the capability 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. The most common inspections are performed in accordance with the Structural Steel Welding Code, AWS D1.1
