Test house continues accreditation and extends scope

Great news for our test house today our new UKAS scope has been published.

We put in some hard work this year and we have added elevated temperature tensile testing and Tantalum element recognition to our OES.

This now takes our scope to cover the following

Mechanical Tests
Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Castings, Forgings, Plate, Pipes and Tubes


Tensile at ambient temperature (Forces 0.3 to 600 kN); ASTM A370-17, ASTM E8/E8M-16a, BS EN ISO 6892-1: 2016
Tensile at elevated temperature from 100°C to 500°C (Forces 2kN to 600 kN); ASTM E21-09, BS EN ISO 6892-2: 2011


Charpy - V notch (Temperature -102C to ambient and at -196°C); ASTM A370-17, ASTM E23-16b, BS EN ISO 148-1: 2016
