Qualification Testing

impact protection

Lankhorst carries out a range of tests on the unprocessed raw materials, production samples and end products to ensure a consistent quality throughout the manufacturing process. These tests are all carried out using our fully calibrated in-house laboratory and testing equipment.

The tests on raw materials and production samples include humidity checks, melt flow index measurements, tensile properties and charpy impact tests.

Additionally as required by the client Lankhorst can carry out a number of tests in house on prototype products during a project as required by the customer, including impact tests, fit up tests, friction force resistance tests, stinger roller simulations, and bending radius.

Testing Rigs
Lankhorst has on site a Stinger Roller testing rig capable of simulating roller loads during S-Lay pipe laying operations of up to 30 metric tons. This rig can be used to prove the suitability of design and material selection of the products.

Lankhorst also has two Impact Test rigs capable of simulation impact loads of up to 5.8kJ and 50kJ. These rigs can be used to assess the effect of a large impact or dropped object on the end-products.

Both these rigs are also available for hire along with a supervising engineer for your own testing requirements. Should you require more information or wish to discuss a booking please contact us for more information.
