Corrosion Testing. Immersion general corrosion, Pitting and crevice corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, high temperature testing, electrochemical test methods,

Corrosion testing is necessary to evaluate the reliability of candidate materials in the intended process environment. This is done by laboratory immersion testing, electrochemical testing and in situ testing of materials in the plant. Standard test methods developed by NACE International and ASTM can be performed as well as reaction simulation and other customized tests.

Mechanical Testing.
Stress rupture, torque tests, charpy, bends, tensile testing and micro and macro hardness.

The thermo-mechanical processing of materials can have a dramatic effect on the mechanical properties of materials. Mechanical testing data is an important factor in material selection. Mechanical testing according to client specification and industry standards, ASTM and SAE, can be performed.

Microstructural Evaluation.
Metallographic techniques, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), EDX & Image Analysis.

The microstructural quality of any material has a profound effect on the performance of the material, and is an important consideration in material selection. Experienced metallurgists analyze the characteristics of metals through micro and macro examinations.
