Metallurgical Failure Analysis – Forensic Engineering

Metallurgical failure analysis provided by MTi can help minimize and eliminate the extreme effects of unexpected down time in the power industry. We specialize in rapid response with prompt report turnaround. When the root cause of the metal product failure is identified, results are communicated immediately. Recommendations can be made to help prevent future unscheduled outages.

Below are several case study reports from the Power and Utilities industries in which we service. Some of the examples include high temperature oxidation failure, hot oxidation corrosion, heater tube failure and failed aluminized steel heater tubes. All client information has been removed from these reports for confidentiality reasons.
