Corrosion Failure Analysis

corrosion failure analysis
Applied Technical Services offers corrosion failure analysis for numerous companies and industries.

Our metallurgical investigations involve identifying failures in alloys, coatings, components, equipment due to environmental exposures, or improper applications. Our ability to evaluate and interpret data produces clear and concise results.

Our areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, general and localized corrosion, weld corrosion, galvanic corrosion, stress corrosion cracking (SCC), corrosion fatigue, intergranular corrosion, graphitic corrosion, and erosion-corrosion. ATS implements systematic procedures for finding the root cause of failure and provides preventative recommendations.

The factors considered in our corrosion failure analysis include material composition, manufacturing practices, service environment, and corrosion morphologies in order to provide precise reporting. Our assessment of all variables and the quality assurance measures we have in place deliver accurate conclusions after a thorough investigation. ATS' technicians and engineers are vastly experienced in corrosion failures and are accessible for clarification regarding all testing. At ATS we strive to perform corrosion failure analysis at the highest expert level in order to provide solutions for our clients.

Common Tests for Corrosion Failure Analysis:
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
  • Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS)
  • X-ray Diffraction (XRD)
  • Metallography
  • Chemical Analysis
