Marine equipment is subject to extremely harsh operating conditions requiring shipbuilders and end customers place a high value on reliability and quality component manufacturers. Manufacturers whose products have not been tested and are not qualified or certified by a reputable third-party will be challenged to penetrate markets and increase their customer bases. In addition to the product reliability requirements, most equipment used on vessels at sea must undergo a compliance process designed to ensure that it is able to survive the ocean's harsh environment. This involves evaluating a system, components and equipment and the type of vessel it will be installed on. Clark offers a rigorous assessment for quality assurance and certification.
Clark can reconstruct severe environmental conditions. Our advanced test systems are able to simulate entire hydraulic systems, load testing, salt corrosion, water ingress, gear box and shaft torsional load testing are among the many test programs we offer to the marine industry.
Clark Dynamics has the environmental chambers to accelerate aging and validate functional performance for longer product life expectancy. Clark can accommodate large component aging for extended periods simulating containment internal conditions as high as 170C.
Common to automated systems and electronics in the industry is the requirement to ensure electromagnetic compatibility of components and mitigate vulnerability to outside sources. Emissions and Immunity analysis provides insight as to the potentially undesirable propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy and radiofrequency interference.
Unique to each test specimen are its functional and design-basis lifetime requirements. Clark’s facilities have the equipment and technical expertise to test a variety of components for mechanical fatigue and failure, life cycle, aging, accelerated aging, and simulation.
Clark Testing’s Vibration laboratory has multiple hydraulic and electrodynamic shakers making Clark Testing the ideal fit for all your testing needs. Our Vibration laboratorys' investment in new equipment has led to Clark Testing being an industry leader in Vibration Testing.
Clark Testing has been in the powertrain & gearbox testing business for over 20 years. Over that time we have tested products ranging from small components such as starters and air motors to transmissions and axles in excess of 2000 horsepower. ciency for anything from heavy off-road industrial equipment to high performance motorized competition vehicles.
The Fuels and Lubricants lab specializes in wear testing of products based on test rigs such as Four-Ball wear, Hydraulic Pump Wear, and FZG Gear. Clark Testing Fuels & Lubricants Laboratory is fully equipped to perform tests ranging from routine analyses to quality control.
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.
