Vehicle Hose Testing Services-Image

Modern life is dependent on flow-the flow of information, fuel, power, water, heat, coolant, braking energy, and all the other resources it takes to keep us going. But, what keeps the hoses going?

Accurate, reliable testing programs from Element Materials Technology laboratories helps businesses like yours plan around the performance of your critical hoses, lines, and flow systems.

Element Des Moines retains a staff of experienced scientists and technicians who are trained to evaluate a vast range of products and materials by an equally broad set of tests and standards. In addition to assisting manufacturers with research, design, product performance, and failure analysis, Element experts also frequently consult on insurance, law enforcement, and litigation cases. Element knows how to conduct accurate, reliable hose and automotive product test services, and get you the answers you need.
