The objective of the load test is to determine the maximum load for pipe supports and other products.
What We Do
To determine the failure loads, PT&P’s engineers and quality control crew will specify goals for the test such as measuring the axial load, lateral load, vertical tension and temperature.
Once the test is completed, the engineers will discuss the data reported and propose alternatives that will improve the amount of force the product will withstand.
