Component Testing - Nuclear Sector

Component Testing for the Nuclear Industry

Lucideon provides independent, third-party test data to

  • support commercial-grade dedication and OEM product development
  • qualify suppliers and companies that want to expand their product offerings to OEMs
  • support technology disruptors who want to develop innovative technologies for the nuclear industry

We offer a wide variety of analytical techniques performed by materials analysts with decades of experience evaluating nuclear materials, components, and systems.

Nuclear Component Testing


Specification testing capabilities include chemical, thermal, mechanical, metallurgical, electrical, and microstructural analysis to qualify components consisting of a wide variety of materials.

Examples include:

  • bearings and Babbitt
  • tapes
  • gaskets
  • welded materials
  • sealants
  • insulated cables and wires


We provide testing to customer-specific, OEM, MIL-Spec, and regulatory requirements.

All testing is performed in compliance with rigorous quality assurance requirements mandated by ISO 17025, 10 CFR 50 Appendix B (nuclear utility industry), and Nadcap (aerospace and defence industry), regardless of whether it requires conformance to any of these accreditations. We also maintain a GE Transportation and Aviation Special Process Certification to perform many S-400 test codes.

If, for any reason, a component does not meet specification requirements, we can provide insight and advice on raw material selection, manufacturing, joining, and processing techniques and parameters to ensure reliable compliance, and an increase in quality.
