IAPMO R&T Lab – Our Broad Range of Services:
• Product Testing – Testing to nationally recognized standards such as ASME/ANSI, ASSE, ASTM, CSA, IAPMO (PS, TS and IGC) and MSS. Products tested to these standards are generally for “listing/certification” purposes.
• Quality Assurance Testing/Evaluation – This type of testing is usually conducted at the request of a manufacturer or supplier who wishes to assure that models being produced or received are in compliance with the current standards or manufacturer’s own specifications. On-site visits of manufacturing locations are also available to assist manufacturers with their in-house quality control system.
• Pre-testing Evaluation, Research/Development and Prototype Testing – Testing on prototype units for compliance to standards can be costly. At IAPMO R&T Lab we offer a pre-evaluation service which includes evaluation of a product to the UPC as well as the applicable test standard. The evaluation may include testing, R&D to assist manufacturers in bringing the product into compliance with standards and codes and testing of prototype models prior to final production. The pre-evaluation testing also applies to products coming from overseas where the products were designed to meet the local requirements.
• Failure Analysis Testing – Testing to the maximum limit to determine a point of failure and an evaluation to determine the reasons or cause of the failure.
