Material Testing & Verification

A product is only as good as the materials from which it is made. The pressure to cut costs and the growth of global manufacturing have magnified the need for more accurate materials testing. BAY Technical has the equipment and qualified personnel needed for positive materials identification, alloy verification, pipe inspection, lead-based paint inspection and hardness testing. We conduct XRF Analysis, and OES spark testing to verify materials and ensure an added level of quality.

Positive Material Identification (PMI) Testing

  • X-ray Fluorescent (XRF) analyzer for alloy verification (Smart Beam feature to accurately separate alloys containing low concentrations of Titanium and Vanadium)
  • Optical Emission Spectrometer (OES) spark testing for carbon content (i.e. H and L grade stainless steels)
  • UV testing for phosphorous and sulfur content

Hardness Testing

  • Krautkramer MIC-10DL
