Materials Engineering and Failure Analysis Services
We have Materials Engineering analysis equipment to help design, inspection, maintenance, repair, and conduct failure analysis. Our engineers and technologists maintain their technical competency through in house and external training, participation in specification writing bodies, and membership in several industry associations. They regularly make presentations at client facilities, conferences and specialist society meetings.
Our inspection and testing services and materials engineers work alongside our NDT and laboratory technicians. This integrated approach is unique and offers clients the total solution. Whether it's understanding the failure of a crane's weld or cast spindle, selecting the right material, or designing a component for maximum long-term durability, our technologists are able to provide quick, detailed, and cost-effective analyses.
Materials Engineering Services Include:
Selection of metallic and non-metallic materials for the construction of components operating in corrosive environments, either in existing industrial facilities or in plants under construction.
Material selection performed in conjunction with the analysis of a failed components from service and fatigue.
Recommending modifications to existing processing procedures or the application of alternative processing techniques to improve component durability and longer lives.
Material Engineering Technologists can conduct the comparison of materials using laboratory test techniques designed to simulate operational conditions. Testing can include strength evaluation, fatigue durability, notch toughness, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and other evaluations as needed.
