We provide onsite testing and evaluation to determine Class 1 certification eligibility of your installed laser equipment. LPS's Field Evaluation team responds promptly to inquiries for service. We're able to meet tight deadlines, and we offer the assurance of getting the job done right. Our staff is experienced with your local business conditions while being part of the world's most respected family of laser safety experts. We bring all this right to your doorstep. 

Additional Testing Services:

1. Product Safety Testing - UL testing, CE Mark testing, CB Report and Certificate testing, EMC, FCC, EN5022 testing. Click on our "CE Assistance Services" page for more details.

2. LOCA Testing - Unique testing capabilities include two Nuclear, Loss of Coolant Accident, LOCA environment simulator test chambers and an in-house thermogravimetric analyzer. Our LOCA test chambers create environmental conditions identified in NUREG-0588 and Appendix A of IEEE 323-74.

3. Shock and Vibration Testing - Modal analysis testing, structural dynamics testing, MIL-STD-810F standard testing, machinery vibration testing, shipping shock and vibration testing, and railroad impact testing. 

Please note the MIL-STD-810 series of standards, issued by the US Army's Developmental Test Command, will likely be updated in May 2008 with the release of revision G, while a draft version should be available in late 2007. The current MIL-STD-810F revision has been in effect since January 1, 2000, when it superseded revision E from July 14, 1989. The 810 series test methods have been approved for use by all departments and agencies of the Department of Defense (DoD).

MIL-STD-810, "Test Method Standard for Environmental Engineering Considerations and Laboratory Tests," specifies environmental tests that determine whether equipment (whether for military or commercial applications) will survive in the field during its useful life. The 810 series originally addressed generic laboratory environmental testing, but with revision D, it began focusing more on shock and vibration tests that closely mirrored real-world operating environments. More recently, revision F further defined test methods while continuing the concept of creating test chambers that simulate conditions likely to be encountered during a product's useful life rather than simply replicating the actual environments.

A major change is the Test Method 527 requires the use of multiple vibration exciters. One application is in simultaneous multiaxis shaking. This will replace the present three tests. Shaking a load first in its x axis, then its y axis, and finally in its z axis. Single-axis testing is recognized to be unrealistic. Laser Product Safety LLC is equipped with a multiaxis seismic shake table. 

The MIL-STD-810 series of tests covers a broad range of environmental conditions such as: low pressure for altitude testing, exposure to high and low temperatures plus temperature shock (both operating and in storage), rain (including wind blown and freezing rain), humidity, fungus, salt fog for rust testing, sand and dust exposure, explosive atmosphere, leakage, acceleration, shock and transport shock (triangle/sine/square wave shocks), gunfire vibration, and random vibration. This standard applies real-world wear and tear to components, subsystems, and complete systems in a laboratory setting that accelerates the testing process while it readies the DUT for final field testing.

4. Environmental Conditioning Testing - Thermal Analysis TGA/DSC, thermal aging testing, accelerated aging (thermal/wear), temperature testing, humidity testing, NFPA pyrotechnic testing chambers, salt fog testing, caustic solution testing and UL testing.

5. Seismic Testing - Seismic qualification of all types of equipment such as seismic analysis of ventilation system ductwork and ductwork accessories. Telcordia NEBS testing, Finite element modeling and analysis. Through seismic and dynamic analysis, testing or a combination of both, our qualification programs meet the IEEE, ANSI, AISC, and UBC codes and standards, as well as applicable ASME codes.

6. Structural Testing - Static load testing, proof load testing, ultimate strength testing, stress strain measurements, and mechanical failure analysis and testing. Static proof and ultimate load testing for many different highly non-linear systems, Stress strain measurements for non-conventional bolting systems, Specialty pressure vessel systems testing, Anchorage systems testing, Fatigue testing of various types of cycling equipment, Failure analysis of mechanical systems such as fans and blowers, and Power transmission and building structural failure testing due to rotating equipment located inside the building. 

7. Pressure and Flow Testing - Static and dynamic, relief valve testing, and hydrostatic testing.

8. Hydraulic System Testing - Hydraulic system failure analysis, hydraulic system failure FIT rate and MTBF testing, hydraulic system testing, and hydraulic system reliability testing.
