Hydrogen Embrittlement Testing

fatigue testing

Applied Technical Services(ATS) offers Hydrogen Embrittlement Testing along with a wide variety of other mechanical testing services. ATS Hydrogen Embrittlement Testing aid in detecting possible hydrogen exposure to parts during the manufacturing process. Parts that undergo surface preparation, pretreatments and plating/coatings processes have a higher risk of becoming brittle if not properly manufactured. Compromised parts become even more subject to failures when exposed to in service environmental hazards like fluids, cleaning treatments, and maintenance chemicals.

Hydrogen embrittlement (HE) is a permanent loss of ductility in a metal or alloy that is caused by the absorption of hydrogen in combination with stress, either by externally applied or by an internal residual stress. Our excellent Hydrogen Embrittlement services here at Applied Technical Services has a wide variety of capabilities. On a daily basis we have many hydrogen embrittlement machines running. Our numerous methods and mechanical equipment methods helps defines acceptance criteria for coating and plating processes that can cause hydrogen embrittlement in steels. Constant exposure to chemicals encountered in the environments, like cleaning treatments or maintenance chemicals that come in contact with the metal, can also be evaluated for hydrogen embrittlement. ATS Hydrogen Embrittlement standard methods are used by many in the aerospace, automotive and commercial industries.
