Metallic and non-metallic materials can be analyzed for chemical composition, microstructure, material properties, corrosion resistance, and environmental stability. Materials testing allows us to make proactive recommendations to reduce risk and failure, and to help to identify manufacturing materials for longer lifecycles and safer processes.
At Acuren, we have designated centers of expertise for conducting specialized testing such as NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) sour service testing on oil field parts, long-term fatigue tests, and accelerated aging testing on automotive plastic components.
Our in-house machine shops provide quick and accurate specimen preparation for all laboratory tests. Our technical libraries contain an extensive collection of materials standards, both current and historical, for evaluating test results. Our extensive professional engineering experience is supported by our NADCAP and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited in-house laboratory facilities.
Our materials testing capabilities include:
Identification of Unknown Materials
Corrosion Testing – as per ASTM and NACE standards
Accelerated Corrosion Assessment
Corrosion & Environmental Testing (including salt spray coating testing)
Tensile Testing – including elevated temperature – up to 1,780 kN (400,000 lbf)
Charpy Impact Testing
Fracture Toughness Testing (CTOD)
Weld Procedure Testing – as per ASME, CSA, CWB, AWS, ASTM
Our experts accurately identify material and subsurface part defects so you can avoid costly failures and product recalls. Our high volume automotive labs calculate inspection times in seconds rather than days, saving our clients time and money.
Acuren has the equipment and certified professionals ready to efficiently carry out comprehensive API and non-API tank inspections and can inspect any tank, of any material or size, including large diameter, small diameter, vertical and horizontal tanks.
