Laboratory Capabilities

State-of-the art metrology and testing capabilities at your service

Using our in-house laboratory facilities, we can perform all prototype and final quality measurement and testing, which guarantees that your product arrives fully validated.

In our metrology facilities, we verify that parts produced meet the specified dimensional tolerances. We conduct the standard functional and environmental tests required for most applications. And, for specialized testing requirements, we have partnerships that allow us to offer state-of-the-art testing, quickly and cost-effectively.

Filtertek also uses the capabilities of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Modeling, which can predict pressure drop and allow for product design optimization early in the development process.
