Portable testing is used for examining large components that cannot be easily
moved or when destructive sample preparation is difficult or not permissible. In-situ
metallurgical testing allows for quick on-site evaluation of a component’s metallurgical
properties and probable defects.
RMRC offers a variety of portable metallurgical tests for a wide range of materials
including low alloy steels, stainless steels, super duplex stainless steels, cast
iron family, nickel-base alloys, aluminum alloys, copper base alloys, zinc alloy,
Typical applications of portable metallurgical testing could be defined as below.
In situ testing of large and/or heavy components, items installed as parts of a
machine during manufacturing especially of mass produced components, in-store testing
for material identification and classification and in locations with difficult access,
or in confined spaces
Our quality control in general is fast and very accurate. RMRC's portable testing
is a further demonstration of enhancing its service offerings to its clients. RMRC
has a highly qualified team of metallurgists, mechanical engineers and corrosion
specialists with experience in the analysis of industrial component failures.
The metallurgical testing services we offer ensure that every material within a
component or product meets its requirements in order to provide the required performance
in the market place. The new on-site microscopy testing service allows us to detect
and quantify component damage and predict their life at a much earlier stage than
is currently possible. Determination of chemical analysis and material designation,
hardness testing, microstructure evaluation, nondestructive testing for both metals
and polymers are part of the available tests at RMRC.
