In our extensive and well equipped laboratories, chemical analysis is conducted to:
- Identify unknown materials (debris found in processing equipment, unidentified raw stock for hardware manufacture, determine the alloy composition of a component that requires repair, verify weld/braze/repair materials used)
- Verification of composition (qualify vendors, spot checks on suppliers, verify information on drawings, meet specification, industry and regulatory requirements, "first piece" and "lot" qualifications, support processing troubleshooting and failure investigations of pumps, and safety equipment (i.e. Blow Out Preventers))
- Determine reaction and processing results - identify the composition of reaction products and stains, determine if processing has changed the chemistry or surface properties or contributed to failure.
