Our services

At The Lab, we have grouped our many services into three core areas; failure investigations and materials testing, fuel testing and analysis, and non-destructive testing.

Within each of these areas you’ll find multiple, distinct services covering everything from chemical and mechanical material identification and hardness testing through to corrosion under insulation inspection services and more. 

On-site testing services

Whilst we may be a physical laboratory, we can in fact bring some of our testing services to you. 

Thanks to our investment in technologies such as LIBS (Laser Induced Spectroscopy) and PECA (Pulsed Eddy Current Array), we are able to test materials on site, in effect bringing our expertise directly to you. 

Many of our inspection and testing services can also be carried out while your assets are in operation, eliminating the need for complex and costly downtime.
