Equipment installed in an earthquake zone will be susceptible to seismic events and vibrations. It is important for safety-related equipment, installed in a nuclear facility, to be able to withstand those conditions and continue to fulfill its safety function.

Seismic Qualification (SQ) is the process of testing equipment in simulated earthquake conditions in order to provide the necessary assurances of continued operability to both the utility and the regulator.

Our complete seismic testing equipment services include the development of the testing program, the seismic and vibration tests themselves, data analysis, and the production of comprehensive test reports.

We meet all the required industry standards and regulations such as 10 CFR 50 Appendix B, IEEE 344, IEEE 382, and the Canadian equivalent CSA N289.4, and produce the results you need to satisfy yourself and your regulator.
