High Temperature and Environmental Testing

The Phoenix materials testing laboratory has a remit to support product and material development, particularly for test requirements that do not fall within the range of the traditional test regimes and standards. One area that we are continuously developing and investing in is high temperature testing and environmental capability.

We can offer sub-contract testing with fully controlled heating and cooling profiles which can be phased in sync or out of sync with other modes of control (load, strain) as required.

Even where there is an existing international standard, such as TMF, our customers often want to replicate the conditions that their parts or materials see in service, so the Phoenix Thermo Mechanical Fatigue software is written to the latest international TMF standard, plus additional features to allow tailored TMF research.

In addition to the heating and cooling options we also have a range of chambers and equipment for controlling the test environment, including:

  • Induction heating
  • Forced air cooling
  • Pyrometry - that can compensate for changes in emissivity of the sample surface
  • Thermal imaging
  • High temperature extensometry

High temperature and environmental testing can be carried out on any of our test laboratory machines from 120N up to 1600kN.
