Hardness testing does not give a direct measurement of any performance properties. But hardness correlates with strength, wear resistance, and other properties. Beta is using the latest technology hardness testers for getting the more reliable and on spot results.
Ferrite content analysis provides critical data pertaining to delta ferrite content in austenitic stainless steel and duplex materials. The delta ferrite percentage or number allows a technical assessment of material corrosion susceptibility, mechanical properties, service suitability, and reliability.
Ferrite testing is performed on austenitic stainless steel and duplex items, including (but not limited to) weldments, castings, weld overlays, wrought materials, and forgings. Ferrite content analysis can be obtained on butt/fillet welds, stainless weld overlays on non-ferrous interfaces, cast components, and pre- and post-weld heat-treated components.
Fiberscopes can be used to see inside turbines, pipelines, condenser tubes, drums, pumps, heat exchangers, and other difficult-to-access areas without teardown. They can be used to check for pitting, cracking, corrosion, erosion, weld defects and other problems quickly and easily.
The TD Focus-Scan is a multifunction ultrasonic inspection system, designed to seamlessly perform multi-channel Phased Array, Time-Of-Flight-Diffraction(TOFD), Pulse Echo, Corrosion Mapping and Girth/Seam weld examinations in every area of engineering. It is mostly using to reduce the manpower loss occurring due to Radiation work and unlike conventional ultrasonic a permanent image is available which make the interpretation more standardize and can cross verify at any time.
Positive Material Identification (PMI) is one of the more specialized non-destructive testing methods. With Positive Material Identification the alloy composition of materials can be determined. If a material certificate is missing or it is not clear what the composition of a material is, then PMI offers the solution. PMI is particularly used for high-quality metals like stainless steel and high alloy metals. While engineers push the boundaries of material capacities to their limits in the design, assurance that the proper material is used becomes ever more important.
