Testing For the Rail Sector

Both new railway works and general maintenance involve considerable earthworks. Simtec provides a range of soils and aggregate testing to ensure compliance of these elements.

Sand replacement density and non-nuclear density gauge testing are just two of the many UKAS accredited tests offered.

Quality and compliance of recycled rail ballast is also tested in our laboratories.

Frequently Asked Questions

The size of sample depends on the material and the reason for the testing. Simtec Materials Testing can offer advice once we know the nature of the tests required. The more information you can supply, for example, client, site name, date sampled, material type, specification etc the more accurately we can advise you. A purchase order is normally required at this stage.

Third party quality assurance and UKAS accreditation ensures a second to none service can be expected from Simtec
