ITAR Registration

Pacific Testing Laboratories, Inc. has completed the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registration process with the U.S. Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC). ITAR compliance will allow Pacific Testing to better serve our Customers, in support of their current and future needs.

Vibration and Shock

To enhance and increase its Vibration and Impact Shock capabilities, Pacific Testing Laboratories has recently added an Unholtz-Dickie Model SAB15F-S202-LP intermediate range Vibration System.

Vibration Shaker and Control Amplifier

The performance of this Vibration System supports a wide variety of Vibration and Impact Shock capabilities, at g levels and weight-handling levels not previously available at Pacific. Applications include product development, design conformance, qualification, certification, and production screening to Military, Aerospace, Automotive, and Medical specifications.

The System is capable of performing to a variety of Test Methods, which may be found in MIL-STD-202, MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-750, FED‑STD‑101C, or ISO 5344: 2004, etc.

The salient characteristics of the System are a usable Frequency Range of DC to 3500Hz; 100g peak positive and negative maximum Shock Pulse @ 18 pounds; 100g peak maximum Acceleration for Sine Vibration; 70g peak maximum Acceleration for Random Vibration; 2.0 inch displacement; 2500Hz Armature Resonance; Automatic Armature Centering; Isolation Mounting; ESD compatible, etc.

Control Room

The System is under control of a Vwin II Controller, which controls the entire Vibration or Shock program from inside the workstation. The Controller features an Automated Calibration Kit, for Self-Test with an NIST-Certificate; it generates an MS Word report, on command. Typical programs are Random; Sine, both swept and fixed; Resonance Dwell; Classical Shock Pulse, etc.

The Test Engineer maintains full visibility over the Test Program at all times from his position in the Control Room; he is able to continuously monitor the vibration or shock levels, frequencies, sweep count, etc. In addition, the test engineer can immediately abort the test program in the event of an equipment or Test Sample failure.

Expansion of Chemical Lab Capabilities

PTL has recently added a new Perkin-Elmer Dual View Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometer (ICP-OES), Model Optima 7000V.

With the ICP-OES, PTL can now simultaneously analyze a variety of elements in solution, with improved detection limits and the option to use either the radial or axial view modes.

Dual viewing allows for lower detection limits and wide working ranges for a variety of samples.
