NHCA Equipment Used in Testing and Analysis Case Studies
Procedures :: Methods :: Equipment
Using the right equipment, the proper method and an exact procedure should deliver a consistent result anywhere in the world. The first two items, procedures and methods, are often spelled out in exacting details. Most questionable findings and results typically come back to verification of "equipment."
- Was the lab's equipment certified?
- Were proper weights and measurements verified?
- Was equipment calibrated for altitude?
- Was equipment calibrated for moisture?
- Was equipment calibrated for temperature?
- Was the right equipment used?
The equipment used during analysis needs to be standardized and verified properly and repeatable anywhere in the world in order to deliver the proper analysis. You may use a putty knife for torque verification, but did the methods call for it and was the blade thickness to standard call out for that method? NHML utilizes the proper, calibrated and verifiable equipment in order to deliver the right analysis you requested. Please explore a few case studies of how using the right equipment saved time and resources.
Polyamide pellets that were to be used in manufacturing were discovered to have developed a white residue of unknown nature or origin. The NH Materials Lab Team were asked to identify the substance and potential solution to avoid repeated conditions. Read more...
