High-Temperature Mechanical Testing

Applied Technical Services offers high temperature mechanical testing through our tensile testing laboratory. The tensile and mechanical testing laboratory at Applied Technical Services houses state-of-the-art equipment to provide high-quality testing procedures. Our expert team is capable of testing a wide range of materials such as:

One of our most common mechanical testing procedures is high temperature tensile testing. Tensile testing involves gripping a sample and pulling until failure, with respect to applicable standards and codes. Our experts collect the data and plot it onto a stress-strain curve, which serves to quantify specific properties of the material. In doing so, we give clients the necessary information to determine whether a material is appropriate for the application.

High temperature mechanical testing combines furnace heating and tensile testing to evaluate the effects of strain and high temperatures on tensile strength. A wide variety of industries such as aerospace, power generation, and automotive, require their materials to endure high temperature environments. Material components such as turbine blades, pistons, and valves undergo harsh service conditions, therefore the materials used in their assembly must be able to withstand high temperatures without failing. High temperature mechanical testing provides data on values such as:
