Testing & Inspection

Product testing and inspection process

At Lenape, we produce finished and semi-finished products to very rigid specifications. And to be absolutely certain that we deliver the quality that we promise, we have a testing and inspecting process for each and every product that is integral to our quality system.

Our fully equipped metallurgical testing laboratory can perform virtually any physical or chemical test and has a self-contained specimen preparation facility. This testing laboratory is part of our Quality Assurance Department which operates independently of our production management to ensure no conflicts of interests internally. Within this department, we have both destructive and non-destructive testing operations.

Non-Destructive testing:

  • Ultrasonic testing- contact and immersion
  • Magnetic particle testing
  • Dye penetrant testing

NDT personnel are certified ASNT-TC IA Level II and III and MIL-STD-271-E and NTR-ID.

Physical/chemical Testing (Destructive):

  • Tensile strength
  • Charpy impact testing
  • Drop-weight testing
  • Metallography
  • Mass spectrography
  • Radiography
  • Brinell and Rockwell hardness testing
  • Alloy separation
  • Ambient testing and elevated temperature testing (-320°F to +212°F)
