Clark Testing’s mechanical testing capabilities include structural, load, fatigue, durability, efficiency,
performance and cyclical aging. Clark’s structural/fatigue, static/dynamic load and rotary and
torsional testing are conducted under our ISO 17025 Quality Assurance program with ITAR
certification. The structures floor at Clark Testing is capable of applying static and dynamics loads
up to 1.5 million lbs. Clark’s dynamometer lab provides efficiency, durability and performance
testing on gearboxes, transmissions, clutches, brakes and motors. The Clark dyno lab can test high
torque, load and speed (rpm) based on the required application. Clark mechanical testing
capabilities also include validation and integration of hydraulic and pneumatic components and
Clark’s Dynamic test laboratory offers equipment qualification, testing & validation services, including seismic, shock, vibration, EMC/EMI and environmental testing. The Dynamics lab has a triaxial seismic shake table along with multiple electrodynamic and hydraulic shake tables. The EMC/EMI lab compliments the dynamic testing services with multiple EMC chambers. . Clark’s Dynamics lab capabilities include test systems to accommodate large component testing with ED shakers up to 30,000 lbs., seismic shake table up to 20,000 lbs. and thermal walk-in chambers for full vehicle testing. Clark MIL standard testing includes MIL-810 vibration, MIL-901 shock & MIL-461 EMC/EMI is ITAR certified
Clark’s Fuel & Lubrication Laboratory conducts analytical testing on oil, lubricants, hydraulic fluids, diesel fuel, alternative fuels, additives, coolant and grease in accordance with ASTM and ISO standards. Clark’s F&L lab tests for compatibility analysis, specification verification, chemical properties and physical properties. Clark is also the lead lab managing the ASTM’s D02 PTP (Proficiency Testing Program). Clark’s lubrication lab also provides tribology services in our Condition Monitoring Service Lab (CMS) for used oil analysis. This lab provides reliability analysis for industrial equipment including gearboxes, bearings, pumps or any lubrication system to assess and protect the health of equipment.
Clark’s Analytical Chemistry Lab provides analysis on raw materials with an array of analytical techniques including XRF, XRD, ICP, GC, LECO & OE. With capabilities for sample prep and wet chemistry, Clark is able to support routine analysis on organic and inorganic materials. Clark’s Particle Characterization Services covers particle size distribution, surface area, density and porosity. Clark’s analytical chemistry laboratory also includes our AIHA certified Industrial Hygiene lab that supports Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) programs for air quality analysis. Clark’s raw material analysis is rounded out with our Coal and Coke Testing services. We offer analytical testing services for metallurgical coal and coke for steel production.
Clark Testing continuously operates under stringent quality assurance guidelines ensure all policies, practices and procedures meet or exceed industry standards. Clark’s QA/QC programs follow the accreditation guidelines of ISO 17025-2017, 10CFR50 Appendix B, NQA-1 and AIHA.
