Chilworth Technology has been a prinicpal provider of Process Safety test data to a wealth of organisations since 1986. We offer state of the art ISO 17025 and GLP accredited dust explosion, gas and vapour flammability, and electrostatic testing laboratories and specialist facilities for the evaluation of thermal runaway reactions and energetic materials (pyrotechnics, propellants, explosives).

Our facilities, located on three continents across the world, are able to perform over 300 standardised tests to a multitude of global standards, as well as numerous non-standard ones. We can fully tailor a testing programme to suit your needs, ensuring that you do not have to test substances repeatedly for the right result. Covered in more detail across the following pages, just some of the laboratory testing we can offer are itemised. If your test is not showing in this list, please contact us as we may be able to help.
