Metallurgical Laboratory and Components Testing

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

In the field of metallurgy, TTC is equipped to run laboratory tests on track and rolling stock components and materials. The testing lab contains scanning-electron, stereo-optical, and x-ray microscopes. Specimens of rail, wheels, and other components are subjected to mechanical testing, micro, Rockwell and Brinell hardness tests. Laboratory capabilities also include nondestructive evaluation to include liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, ultrasonic and visual testing. The Component Test Laboratory (CTL) provides a facility for various tests of track and equipment components. Full-scale wheel saw-cutting facilities, scaled-down drop (impact) test fixture for tank car heads, calibration fixtures for instrumented wheelsets and track components, such as ties, are also available in the CTL.
