Hardness Testing

Glacier provides a range of NDT hardness testing techniques

Glacier provides hardness testing on materials, which is the measurement of “resistance of metal to deformation, usually by indention.”

This method is regularly used to ascertain material acceptability to specified standards, a method of NDT often used for quality control or to determine failure analysis, by determining the hardness of metals, the Glacier team can offer valuable information around the strength properties of the material

This can help to verify conformance to contract, code or specificications, as well as proper heat treatment requirement. It can alos determine structural integrity, measuring hardness differences and consistencies.

The technique offers a number of key benefits, including a portable option with easy inspection of assembled machines, steel, cast construction. Any test marks made on metal surfaces are minor with the ability to provide instant results and rapid conversion to multiple hardness scales by material groups or specified ranges.
