Break testing

Break testing involves breaking a weld sample to achieve a fractured weld face. The sample has load applied until the weld has failed. The failed sample is then inspected to establish the presence and extent of any welding discontinuities. This test will provide a good indication as to the extent of discontinuities within the weld. This type of weld inspection can detect such items as lack of fusion, internal porosity and slag inclusions. This testing method is often used in conjunction with the macro etch test as well as determining weld procedure qualification. These two testing methods complement each other by providing information on similar characteristics in different detail and in different ways.
