Corrosion testing Lab
Corrosion Engineering is the special discipline of applying scientific knowledge, natural laws and physical resources in order to design and implement materials, structures, devices, systems and procedures to manage the natural phenomenon known as corrosion. Generally related to Metallurgy or Materials Science, Corrosion Engineering also relates to non-metallic including ceramics, cement, and conductive materials such as carbon / graphite.
Corrosion Engineers often manage other not-strictly-corrosion processes including (but not restricted to) cracking, brittle fracture, crazing, fretting, erosion, and more typically categorized as asset management. Occurrence of corrosion and its practical control is an area of study covering a wide range of scientific knowledge. Corrosion Science provides a medium for the communication of ideas, developments and research in all aspects of this field and includes both metallic and non-metallic corrosion. The scope of this subject is very extensive.
Published papers ranging from the highly theoretical to the essentially practical and cover such areas as high temperature oxidation, passivity, anodic oxidation, biochemical corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, and mechanisms and methods of corrosion control. The degradation of materials, and both surface science and engineering. It forms an important link between metallurgists, materials scientists and all investigators of corrosion and degradation phenomena.
"Principles of corrosion engineering and corrosion control" states that "Corrosion engineering is the application of the principles evolved from corrosion science to minimize or prevent corrosion. Corrosion engineering involves designing of corrosion prevention schemes and implementation of specific codes and practices. Corrosion prevention measures, like cathode protection, designing to prevent corrosion and coating of structures fall within the regime of corrosion engineering.
Corrosion engineers and consultants tend to specialize in Internal or External corrosion scenarios. In both, they may provide corrosion control recommendations, failure analysis investigations, sell corrosion control products, or provide installation or design of corrosion control and monitoring systems.
In this laboratory corrosion testing and assessment on the basis of materials and their application are available. Also according to any international standard our customers can receive answer of their question in connection with cause of material failure, selection of materials, increase component life cycle, anodic or cathodic protection methods.
