Metallurgical analysis of the microstructure of failed or failing metal components can reveal a great deal about whether the metal is appropriate for the duty.
For example, whether it is in the correct condition (heat treatment, surface coating etc.), contains internal manufacturing defects, or has undergone physical or chemical changes during its fabrication which impair its performance are all important factors in determining the root cause of failures in metallic components.
Examination of the morphology of cracks, porosity or other internal service related defects also helps to identify the exact mode of failure in most cases, and this in turn can be used to identify solutions which prevent or inhibit the occurrence of future failures.
Our expertise covers the range of ferrous, non-
In our well equipped laboratory all microscopy techniques are available in transmitted and incident light, and image analysis is available on all of our microscope equipment.
As well as sophisticated laboratory based equipment, non-
Our work has involved us in most Industry sectors including basic iron and steelmaking, problems in the power generation industry, and the application of sophisticated alloy materials and conservation techniques for novel or unique applications.
Our greatest experience lies with the problems and solutions encountered in the chemical
and process industries, including on-
Field Metallography in use to monitor creep damage in a package boiler and evaluating overheating damage on a high temperature reactor.
