Destructive Testing

Adhesiometers are used for destructive testing to help determine the quality of anti–corrosion coating systems adhesion to the pipe.

adhesion testing in–field

Tensile–testing machines measure the strength of the bond between the protective coating and the pipe surface.

For destructive testing, particularly for:

  • mechanical testing of weld joints,
  • physical and chemical analysis of the material,
  • inspection of strength of manufactured items,
  • inspection of strength of coating,

fully equipped mobile or permanent laboratories are convenient.

stationary equipment

Mobile laboratories enable these test functions to be performed on the right–of–way or at another location.
