MAPNA Boiler Metallurgy Laboratory

MAPNA Boiler and Equipment Engineering and Manufacturing Co. Laboratory was established in 2011 as an independent testing laboratory. This laboratory is well equipped with modern facilities and equipment and offer a wide range of accredited mechanical and metallurgical tests to many sectors of industry.


Major test works includes:
  • Metallographic Examination:
    Micro structural evaluation to examine aspects such as weld quality, effectiveness of heat treatment, grain size, coating thickness, macro examination etc.
  • Chemical Analysis:
    Ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys using Spark-OES and portable XRF.
  • Mechanical Testing:
    Including tensile testing at ambient temperature, Impact testing, bend testing and a full range of tests on welds (PQR, WPQ, Production Test) and fasteners (Wedge Test & Proof Test)
  • Hardness Testing:
    Rockwell B & C, Brinell, Vickers and microhardness (Vickers & Knoop)
