U.S. Forensic preforms metallurgical testing on failed equipment, structural components, oilfield, natural gas, and plant equipment, piping, storage tanks, hydraulic systems, valves, fasteners, and metal structures.
Our experts conduct a metallurgical analysis to determine if a mechanical, structural, or component failure is due to:
- Defective material
- Improper design
- Manufacturer defect
- Improper welding
- Poor Installation
- Chemical contamination
- Improper maintenance
Metallurgical testing is conducted at U.S. Forensic laboratories. Items are either secured on site by our experts or shipped to our facilities. If the failed mechanical equipment or structural component is shipped, we ask that you contact us for instructions prior to removal.
