Global expertise in corrosion testing
Our corrosion testing services cover a wide range of industry requirements. Our global network of corrosion testing laboratories specialise in the qualification of materials for “sour” service applications and offer standard Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC), Sulphide Stress Cracking (SSC) tests and also more specialised Full Ring and Stress Orientated Hydrogen Induced Cracking (SOHIC) tests. The Full Ring test is currently available at our Corrosion Centre in the UK, and in Abu Dhabi.
Autoclave corrosion testing facilities
High pressure high temperature Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) testing is undertaken in the Group’s numerous autoclave facilities in the UK and the USA. Autoclaves are also available in the USA for conducting Slow Strain Rate Testing (SSRT) and Cyclic Slow Strain Rate Testing (CSSRT) for the evaluation of the hydrogen embrittlement behaviour of carbon steels and corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs).
Pitting and crevice corrosion testing
Pitting and crevice corrosion for quality control and fitness for purpose studies are undertaken using ambient pressure and elevated pressure (autoclave) exposure tests and electrochemical techniques.
