Charpy V-Notch Testing Services

Charpy V-notch (CVN) testing helps determine your material’s toughness and ductility at various operating temperatures. At Titan Metallurgy we can perform Charpy testing to determine how your material will perform under these various circumstances. Charpy test results tell you the amount of energy your metal absorbs during fracture.

Charpy Impact Testing Process

During the Charpy impact test, a calibrated pendulum swings from a set height and strikes a machined material sample, breaking it. The energy transferred to the material can be inferred by comparing the difference in the height of the hammer before and after the fracture (energy absorbed by the fracture event).

Material samples are precisely machined before testing and can be thermally controlled in an agitated chiller to -70° F to test the material’s performance under extreme conditions. We also have furnace capabilities to provide elevated temperature conditions.

Please note: Titan Metallurgy typically focuses on metals for industrial use, although we do enjoy a bit of historical metallurgy from time to time. Unfortunately, we can’t date or value metals or minerals and don’t have the ability to test rock, ore, or meteorites.
