6- SSCC, HIC corrosion testing Lab

This lab is equipped with devices and equipment for testing corrosion based on pipe manufacturing standards for being used in corrosive environments. The equipment in this lab include equipment required for point bending and proof ring methods related to Caltech engineering services Co.

7- Calibration

In order to maintain the appropriate quality and control in the production and inspection processes of the primary materials and product it is necessary to use calibrated equipment. To this aim and also to increase the quality of products in Kalup Co. and also ensuring the quality of products, a calibration unit has been established in this complex. Also other equipment needing calibration by calibration labs outside the organization are sent to those organizations.
