The Charpy impact test uses a swinging pendulum to assess the resistance of a material to brittle fracture. The absorbed energy is measured from a calibrated analog scale. AWT can perform testing at temperatures as cold as
-320¢X, with absorbed energies up to 300 ft-lbs. Testing performed per various specifications, such as ASTM A370, ASTM E23, ASME Section VIII, AWS D1.1, and many others.
