Metals & Alloys

Metal and Alloys are the key materials for any product manufacturing or processes of construction of structure, building of machinery or processing raw materials into finished products. Equipment and Components in the infrastructure areas like power Plants, large scale/heavy industry do come across different operating conditions and demonstrate effects of various processes depending on the stress & strain and life cycle.

BTH test facility in examining the several parts/components made of metals & alloys through physical, Chemical non-destructive, XRF etc methods by employing recommended methods and instruments.

In India, BTH lab services is adequately equipped to test various metals and alloys for Qualitative and Quantitative analysis as per the various related Indian standards as well as customer’s requirements that also covers raw materials and finished goods.
