ABOUT CORTEST

PERFORMANCE UNDER PRESSURE

WHO WE ARE

Since 1977, Cortest has been the industry leading provider of high quality corrosion and materials testing equipment by accepting and completing some of the most challenging projects in the field. Cortest has earned the reputation as the reliable go-to supplier of custom test systems. Throughout its history, Cortest has been involved in the testing industry, having previously provided corrosion testing services in its laboratories based in Houston, Texas, Columbus, Ohio, and Sheffield, England. The experience gained in our commercial laboratories significantly improved product design to assure safe and efficient operation meeting the specific needs of the researcher. Starting with the proof ring test system, Cortest’s product line has grown to include autoclaves, load frames, fume hoods, flow loops, deadweight testers, HIC tanks, magnetic drives, controls, software, and a wide range of specialty equipment. Many industry standard testing methods can be fulfilled using equipment specifically designed by Cortest to meet the requirements of its test standard.

Using our standard products as a baseline, customers can work directly with Cortest engineers to cost effectively design a fully customized apparatus to precise specifications. In addition to individual systems, Cortest frequently supplies fully outfitted new laboratories including test equipment, fume hoods, safety systems, data acquisitioning, glassware, and other supplies. Cortest equipment is available with PED, CSA, CE, DOSH, and the China Special Equipment Manufacture License certificates (upon request). To assure successful operation of Cortest equipment, installation, training, and commissioning services are available worldwide. Continued growth has resulted in Cortest having been awarded Fast Track 50 awards on nine occasions (awarded to the fastest growing firms in our region) and in 2014, Cortest again doubled its manufacturing facility.
