Ambient & High Temperature Mechanical Testing for Turbine Blade Manufacturers
Our ambient and high temperature mechanical testing can help you understand the performance characteristics of turbine blades in real-life situations.
Lucideon specializes in ambient and high temperature mechanical testing which may or may not fall under an existing standard. We understand that unanticipated failures can have large cost and time implications so recognizing how materials and components perform in high temperature environments is paramount. Our years of expertise, partnered with state-of-the-art ISO 17025 and Nadcap compliant facilities, enables us test your materials under standard and product-specific loading configurations.
What makes us different?
- We have comprehensive knowledge of the behavior of superalloys and composites
- We have experience of testing coating strength in elevated temperature environments
- We act as an extension of your internal capabilities, complementing your knowledge and solving any problems that may exist – saving you time, money and resources.
Our mechanical testing capabilities range from sub-ambient (-130°C) to high temperature (1650°C) including:
- Bend testing
- Charpy impact
- Coating bond strength
- Flexural strength
- Gardner impact
- Hardness (Brinell, Knoop, Rockwell, Shore, Vickers)
- Shear strength
- Stress rupture
- Tensile strength
- Poisson's Ratio.
