Nuclear equipment qualification from SCHOTT offers several key benefits and advantages to you:

Comprehensive & Hassle-Free Service

SCHOTT offers complete “one-stop” service for the entire testing process. No need to consult with multiple parties for the various stages of qualification testing. Our top priority is to help you reach your end goal of having a fully tested and certified product. You can relax and have a worry-free experience while we take care of everything for your qualification needs.

Established Knowledge & Resources

Nuclear equipment qualification testing is a complex process requiring specialized equipment and top-level expertise. This can result in components manufacturers navigating unfamiliar territory and losing crucial time in completing this essential step of the design and qualification process.

SCHOTT has performed nuclear equipment testing in-house since the early 1970s. Our R&D and manufacturing expertise includes long-standing experience designing and manufacturing electrical feedthroughs and cable assemblies that meet and exceed regulatory “explosion-proof” standards. We have what it takes to provide you with a finished component that is designed and tested to stand up to all applicable standards and qualifications. You can have peace of mind knowing you will be offering a top-quality product to your customers.

Understanding of Your Perspective

As a components manufacturer itself, SCHOTT understands your processes, priorities, and typical problems you may face in the design and manufacture of products subject to qualification testing. Drawing on our successes and learnings from our own products that have been tested in-house, we will help make sure you receive the same level of careful examination and thoughtful service that has earned SCHOTT its coveted reputation in the nuclear and high-stress components market.
