Qualitest metallurgical testing lab is fully equipped to prepare test specimens and samples for all metal tests performed in our destructive testing departments. Our non-destructive metal testing services can be performed on a wide-range of products such as tubing, pipe, bar, plates, castings, fasteners and other machined parts in all sizes, shapes and weights. Once the testing is completed, our Engineers will prepare a detailed technical report with metal test results, accreditation, and specifications etc as per the client’s project requirements.
