Instron® Professional Services Impact Calibration - Pendulum

Many tests performed on pendulum impact systems must adhere to International testing standards that include materials test method and testing laboratory competence requirements. The verification and calibration of your pendulum system ensures your testing (and laboratory) is in compliance to these standards. A calibrated pendulum impact system will also provide confidence that you are reporting accurate, traceable, and repeatable results.

Hydraulic Hose Replacement

Hoses can often be the forgotten part of hydraulic systems, but their performance and condition can have a critical impact on not only the system performance, but also on the health and safety of your facilities and staff. Most laboratories will have their own periodic inspection program as part of the site’s health and safety policy. Early indications of an impending catastrophic hose failure, such as blistering, fitting weep, and chaffing, will often be detected then, or as part of Instron’s professional routine system maintenance. This specialised maintenance will also detect more subtle failure, such as the erosion of the internal hose wall, that can have a marked impact on the performance of the system, especially in such areas as the servo valve.
