Kerkau Testing

PMI Testing Equipment

Kerkau has the capabilities to do in house testing of materials to ensure physical and chemical criteria is adhered to.

To ensure quality standards are met, Kerkau PMI's (Positive Material Identification) incoming raw materials, after finish machining and prior to shipping.  If any material is found to be defective, Kerkau uses 3rd party laboratory facilities to handle any destructive and microscopic inspections of material.

Kerkau's PMI testing equipment includes multiple NITON XL3t XRF Analyzers.

Hardness Testing

Kerkau in house hardness testing capabilities include testing for Brinell hardness.  This is done by using a Newage Portable Hardness Tester.  This allows Kerkau to accurately determine the hardness of incoming raw materials and materials that have been heat treated.

ALL FINAL TESTING RESULTS ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
