Power Generation

Where Safety and Reliability are Crucial

It is critical that power generators operate safely and reliably. Laboratory Testing Inc. plays an important role in inspecting materials that go into new sites and analyzing parts that fail or need repair at existing facilities. Read “LTI Inspects Replacement Pipe for Nuclear Reactor”

LTI’s quality system is in accordance with 10CFR50 Appendix B and ASME NQA-1 for the nuclear industry. We perform all required power generation testing for the upgrading of existing sites and the utilization of unqualified source material. Certified Material Test Reports in accordance with ASME Section III NCA-3800, 10CFR50 Appendix B or ASME NQA-1 are provided with each order. LTI’s Quality Program has been audited by:

  • NUPIC (Nuclear Procurement Issues Committee)
  • NIAC (Nuclear Industry Assessment Committee)

Nuclear Approvals

In addition to NIAC and NUPIC member approvals, LTI has been audited and approved by the following companies in the nuclear industry:

Failure Analysis


For your convenience, LTI provides much more than testing. We can prepare your test specimens from metals and many plastics according to ASTM specifications. If a part should fail, our materials engineers can perform a thorough investigation to determine the root cause and suggest ways to prevent future occurrences. Your calibration requirements for measuring tools, gages, torque wrenches, masters, CMMs and other measuring instruments can be handled in our climate-controlled lab or at your facility.
