Essentra Pipe Protection Technologies maintains strict testing criteria for each pipe protection product we manufacture. We utilize the most rigid form of testing to routinely inspect the following areas:
Our state-of-the-art quality lab has been redesigned with you in mind. In our lab, you will find top-of-the-line testing equipment from the use of a coordinate measuring machine to our use of various Gagemaker tools including Mic Trac. Essentra is also equipped for extreme high and low-temperature testing in which we can test for temperatures well outside of the standard -50°F to 150°F required by the American Petroleum Institute (API). The use of vibration table to perform tests in accordance with MIL-STD-810c and additional testing equipment such as impact, strip out, and corrosion testers, round out Essentra’s high-quality testing equipment.
As part of our effort to continuously improve, we have adopted the use of robotics on more than 50% of our injection molded machines to consistently remove parts from the machine and assist in the post mold cooling process. In combination with our tight molding tolerances, we use a proprietary blend of resin that ensures the best performance possible, but we don’t stop there. We are always looking for ways to improve our current blends for even better performance.
