The correct root cause identification leads to the solution of the problem

Testmat can help remediate the impact of a failure by
• Interpretation of the failure data, including on-site review
• Examining the parts and determining the failure mechanisms
• Root cause analysis, including design, fabrication, transportation, installation, and service
• Definition of safe conditions for remaining intact components
• Establishing a non-destructive evaluation strategy for remaining components

Failure analysis of equipment ANd components

Testmat focuses during failure analysis on the metallurgical aspects and mechanical stresses involved. This type of analysis applies to any item that fails during its operation, such as parts of mechanical equipment, welded joints, or structures.
This analysis identifies the most likely root cause, thus correcting the factors that caused the life reduction of the item. Examples of determinable causes are incorrect application, aggressive media, inappropriate usage specifications.
