Testing and Pre-Certification Testing

We offer complete testing services toward certification to support IECEx, ATEX and ETL certification to access Global markets. This includes the full suite of explosion and electrical testing as well as optical radiation (60079-28), process seals (60079-40, ANSI/ISA 12.27.01) and others.

If you are unsure about the performance of your prototype Intertek offers pre-certification testing to one of more specific tests in certification standards.   A test report for specific tests can be provided and/or a partial ExTR for specific tests.   Requests include testing at elevated or reduced ambient, elevated pressure or whatever is needed to achieve your certification or product development goals.
