Superior Equipment, Superior Results



Clark Testing is a 17025 accredited laboratory with multiple locations in the USA. Our mid-Atlantic location offers seismic testing, shock testing, vibration testing, EMC/EMI and environmental testing. Our Great Lakes regions location offers structural testing, fatigue testing, dyno testing and hydraulic testing. We are a 'one-stop' test laboratory for companies looking to qualify their products for industrial applications such as power generation, telecom, medical, aerospace, transportation and mining as well as military requirements, particularly the navy. Our knowledgeable team can also perform product qualification services to companies providing electronic components and systems to the commercial nuclear power industry under 10CFR-50 regulations.


We have also been active in experimental stress analysis, strength and fatigue testing of structural components, beam fatigue and systems for over 20 years. Products tested range from small machine components to large off-highway vehicle frames. Our capabilities include extensive hydraulic and pneumatic testing suited for applications in aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment, military, nuclear, power generation, and rail and transportation.


  • Seismic Testing

    Our seismic shake tables are of different sizes to accommodate requirements varying from a high input acceleration levels of small equipment (control board components) to low input acceleration levels of large equipment (such as safety injection pump).

Clark Highlights

Accelerated Aging Image

Accelerated Aging

Clark’s accelerated aging and corrosion lab prepares products for the marketplace by subjecting them to harsh environmental conditions. Our NACE lab induces corrosion with hydrogen to accelerate the aging of metals. Clark’s salt spray chambers accommodate components being tested under MIL Standard 810. Clark has thermal chambers that simulate extremely hot, freezing and humid environments with thermal shock capabilities. Our HALT chambers provide mechanical testing while replicating environmental volatility.
