The following analysis can be done independently on materials in labs equipped with the following equipment:

  • Tribocope - a combination of an atomic force microscope and a nano-mechanical probe
  • Universal micro-tribometer - has the capability to monitor electrical contact resistance, acoustic emission and frictional force during wear, indentation and scratch tests on micro-scale and macro-scale
  • Scanning Kelvin Probe - determines surface electron work function
  • Fischer Scope - Micromechanical probe
  • High-temperature air - jet erosion tester
  • Electrochemical scratch apparatus - for corrosive wear studies
  • Electrochemical measurement system - for corrosion studies
  • Dry sand/Rubber - wheel abrasion tester
  • Slurry-pot erosion tester with temperature control
  • Pin-on-dics wear testers
  • Air-jet erosion tester
  • Pulse and direct current electrodeposition system
  • Differential scanning calorimetry system
  • Bell Jar vacuum melting furnace
  • Automated friction measurement
  • Laser thermometer
  • Computing facilities

  • Ring Flattening

Chemical Testing

  • Alloy Identification
  • Metals Composition - Ferrous & Non-ferrous Alloys
  • Scales and Deposit Analysis
  • SEM with Light Element EDS Capability

Metallurgical & Special Testing

  • Coating Testing
  • Electron Microscopy
  • Corrosion Evaluation
  • Heat Treat Analysis
  • Grain Size
  • Fracture Mode Analysis
  • Simulated Environment

Failure analysis

  • May range from a simple test to a complete and exhaustive investigation.
  • We can study the engineering design, specification requirements, material, function, service environment, and loads. This information is combined with macroscopic, chemical, corrosion products, and non-destructive evaluations to determine the failure mechanism.
  • Used to:
    • Prevent recurrence of failure.
    • Reduce operating costs.
    • Improve safety.
    • Extend product life.
    • Provide customers with an objective evaluation.

Non Destructive Testing

  • Radiography – x-ray or gamma ray
  • Magnetic Particle Inspection – wet or dry, black on white & fluorescent
  • Liquid Penetrant Inspection – visible & fluorescent
  • Visual Inspection
  • Ultrasonic - flaw detection, thickness and bond testing
  • Hardness - Rockwell, Brinell, Micro & Portables
  • Positive Materials Identification
