Mechanical Engineering
The Mechanical Engineering Laboratories are adequately equipment and also has state – of – the- art equipment among the best found in the region. The personnel involved in testing has been extensively trained and have considerable experience mechanical testing of products and related materials. Various products are tested in the mechanical laboratories and some of these include those in the list below:
 
  • Semi – flexible vinyl floor tiles
  • U-pvc pipes
  • Cast iron manhole covers
  • GRP panels-sectional tanks for cold water storage
  • Windows, casement doors and sidelights steel frames
  • Steel doorframes-specifications
  • Class room furniture
  • Galvanized mild steel pipes
  • Steel kitchen cup-boards – built-in
  • Test on welds
  • Water taps
  • LPG regulators
 
The tests performed are:

 

-           Dimensions
-           Marbling and mottling
-           Flexibility after aging
-           Loss of mass after heating
-           Vicat softening point
-           Thermal Reversion
