Corrosion Testing (Certified by ISO 17025)
Sulfide Stress Cracking Testing

     The testing of metals subjected to applied stresses for resistance to cracking failure in low-pH aqueous environments containing H2S in compliance with sour service materials qualification NACE MR0175/ISO 15156.

Standard of Test

  • Method A –Tensile Test
  • Method B – Bent-Beam Test (3 point)
  • Method C – C-Ring Test

NACE TM0316

  • Four Point Bend Test

EFC 16

Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC)

     Standard set of test conditions for consistent evaluation of pipeline and pressure vessel steels and compares test results from different laboratories pertaining to the results of the absorption of hydrogen generated by corrosion of steel in wet H2S.

     HIC testing in accordance with NACE TM0284 by exposing unstressed test specimens to the specified environment saturated with hydrogen sulfide gas at 1 bar pressure for a duration of 96 hours for test solution A, B and 90 days maximum for test solution C, dependent on the partial pressure H2S in the test gas.

     Method Evaluation of Hydrogen Induced Cracking

1. The specimens are metallographically prepared, and any cracks are measured and the following ratios reported: 

  • CSR (Crack Sensitivity Ratio)
  • CLR (Crack Length Ratio)
  • CTR (Crack Thickness Ratio) 
2. Ultrasonic Testing Immersion Testing (UTIM)

    The crack area ratio (CAR) shall be determined for each specimen and calculated as follows:

           %CAR = (Total area of Indication / Area of specimen surface) X 100

 

Stress corrosion cracking (SCC)

     Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is mainly damage caused that detected many in industry. The stress corrosion test will be performed in according to the standard for study or applied in quality test to evaluate the material (material selection) that can have resistance to SCC.
