Laboratory & Testing

Our laboratory is well equipped to deal with common failures. We also have test rigs for performance testing of sump pumps and other equipment. However, sometimes it is more economical to engage outside laboratories when the cost of owning specialized equipment and maintaining ISO certification isn’t fiscally justifiable (SEM, EDX and sample analysis). We vet the outside laboratories to ensure that they can provide independent and compelling evidence, should our case end up at trial.

Types of investigations
  • Scanning electron microscope (SEM)
  • Sample testing (gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and VOC’s)
  • Energy dispersive x-ray analysis (EDX)
  • Sump pump testing
  • Stereo and optical microscopy
  • Advanced software analysis
  • Electrochemical and corrosion testing
  • Portable digital x-ray
