Heat Treating

Verifying the Alterations to Metal Properties

Steel, iron, and other metals are hard and strong by nature, but some applications require more durable or corrosion-resistant metals that can be attained by heat treating. With a wide-range of metals testing capabilities, Laboratory Testing Inc. evaluates materials following heat treatment. These laboratory testing services and our technical expertise allow us to verify mechanical properties, determine resistance to corrosion and detect surface and subsurface discontinuities.

Laboratory Testing is a full-service materials testing lab specializing in metals testing through both destructive and nondestructive testing (NDT) methods. Our laboratory testing services include all the mechanical, metallurgical, corrosion and nondestructive testing you need to evaluate your products.

  • Hardness testing (Rockwell, Brinell & Superficial methods)
  • Tensile testing (100 lbs. up to 600,000 lbs.)
  • Fracture toughness testing
  • Fatigue testing
  • Corrosion testing
  • Microhardness
  • Metallurgical testing
  • Fluorescent penetrant testing
  • Magnetic particle inspection

If materials fail to perform to expectations, our materials engineers can investigate and perform the necessary testing to determine the root cause of the failure. LTI has an in-house Machine Shop, so let our machinists prepare your test specimens for time savings and convenience.

One-stop for Temperature Calibration Too

The field technicians at LTI Metrology, our calibration division, provide pyrometry services to let you know if your furnaces, controllers and other temperature equipment are operating efficiently and accurately. When needed, our technicians can provide adjustments and repairs while at your facility for temperature consistency throughout your equipment.

  • Uniformity Surveys
  • Temperature Controllers
  • Recorders (Temperature, Digital, Chart)
  • System Accuracy Tests

We are qualified to perform Uniformity Surveys on many types of furnaces and ovens, including curing and drying ovens, batch furnaces, tooling furnaces and drying ovens. Surveys are performed according to AMS 2750D pyrometry requirements for reliability.
