Would you like to witness a live destructive pipeline burst test?

Come visit C-FER’s full-scale pipeline testing laboratory on April 17th for the unique opportunity to tour the laboratory and to observe a live destructive pipeline burst test.  Attendees will hear a presentation about how full-scale testing is used to calibrate and verify engineering models, then they will tour the laboratory and the event will finish with a full-scale destructive burst test of a pipeline specimen.

Check out this short video (less than 1 minute) video to learn about what C-FER does and to see an actual destructive pressurized bend test.

Requirements: Closed toe flat shoes are a minimum requirement. It is suggested that participants bring steel toe boots, eye glasses and hard hats if they have them.  Hard hats and safety glasses will be provided to those who do not have their own.

The purchase price of the tickets will be refunded at the event to those who attend.

Space will be limited and tickets will not be sold at the door.

We look forward to seeing you there.
