Companies in the oil & gas, nuclear, petrochemical and aerospace industries need outstanding reliability in the components they use in their manufacturing processes. Maxbar’s fatigue testing services can give companies complete confidence in their equipment.

What is Fatigue Testing?

Some forms of pressure testing such as burst testing or hydrostatic testing are administered in a single pass. This is acceptable for components that will endure ongoing pressure for an extended period of time. But other industrial components, such as aircraft landing gear, nuclear infrastructure or chemical plant valves, will be repeatedly subjected to certain level of pressure or stress. Industrial companies need to know how those devices or products will perform under these conditions.

In these and other scenarios, fatigue testing (also known as cyclical testing) is most appropriate. The product, material or component is subjected to levels of pressure at repeated intervals, and the effects are observed over the period of the test to see how well the product holds up under the type of conditions it might be expected to endure in real-world use.

Custom Pressure Testing Services

The requirements of fatigue testing are unique to each project and its particular needs. Some companies need fatigue temperature tests, while others need fatigue leak testing. To provide each client with the specialized services they require, Maxbar has built its pressure testing facility for maximum flexibility, including:

  • Air testing up to 6,000 PSI
  • Nitrogen or helium testing up to 30,000 PSI
  • Liquid testing up to 200,000 PSI

For fatigue temperature testing, we have a number of bench-top and free-standing temperature chambers on site for samples of nearly any size. For fatigue pressure testing, we have pressure chambers to simultaneously produce both internal and external pressure to replicate subsea pressure conditions.

The most specialized tests may require testing equipment that isn’t readily available through off-the-shelf providers. In response to this need, Maxbar engineers and manufactures testing systems to replicate the precise real-world conditions your equipment will face while in use. For measurement of the performance of your sample during the test, we utilize whatever instrumentation is necessary, from manual charting to computer-based data logs, to collect and document the data you require.

Many companies don’t have the facilities and expertise to perform fatigue testing at the level needed. Other companies may have access to fatigue testing facilities, but are open to affordable alternatives. Maxbar has the experience, manpower and facilities to provide first-class fatigue testing services at a price that will fit your project budget.
