Testing

ARCZON Mechanical Testing & Metallurgical Division, providing wide range of Destructive testing’s & Metallurgical services to the Oil & Gas, Marine & Industrial sectors.
Arczon partners equipped with advanced testing equipment’s & in-house machine shop to conduct the testing as per ASTM, BS, BS EN, DIN, ISO or client/project specified standards with ultimate customer satisfaction.

TENSILE TESTING


ARCZON mechanical testing services is using standard test method to identify the basic properties of the materials like, yield point & elongation under uniaxial tensile load. This test will help to understand exact value of Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, % Elongation and reduction area of the material. By using Computerized Universal Testing machine to determine the mechanical properties of various ferrous and nonferrous metals. This value used to interpolate behaviour of material during various type load condition.

BEND TEST

To evaluate both the ductility and soundness of a material. It is often used as a quality control test for butt-welded joints, having the advantage of simplicity of both test piece and equipment. We using different bend re bend mandrill according to the standards and project specifications.

  • Weld metal testing- Rebend / root / face / side bend test
  • Compression test

CHARPY IMPACT TESTING

mpact test validate the ability of material withstand during impact or sudden changes in load, it also help to find ductile to brittle transition temperature of the material, this will help to identify the materials behavior in low temperature application .we having the capacity to conduct the test from room temperature to various sub-zero temperature.

  • Subzero temperature
  • Room temperature

HARDNESS TESTING

calibrated benchtop/Portable hardness testers to measure accurately the material’s resistance to localized plastic deformation

  • Rockwell Hardness Testing
  • Vickers Hardness Testing
  • Brinell Hardness Testing
  • Onsite hardness measurement

METALLURGICAL SERVICES


Extends our services in Corrosion testing focusing to provide our clients with early detection of corrosion and minimizing the failures in materials that are subjected to face corrosion. It’s a challenging scenario in many industries especially in oil and gas fields that are caused by corrosion effects. It’s an apt option to test these materials before that are being installed. So we would like to recommend Corrosion testing and proper evaluation by our team as per recognized standards.


HIC & SSC TESTING


We perform Sulphide Stress Cracking (SSC) testing of metals subject to cracking with simultaneous effect of tensile stress and corrosion in the presence of wet media and H2S environment as per NACE TM 0177 standard.

IGCT & PITTING CORROTION


The metal and alloys are made up of grain, in micro level the structure is separated by grain boundary. Intergranular corrosion is preferential attacks on the grain boundary where grain remain largely unaffected. This type corrosion occurred due to segregation of impurity (precipitation of nitrides, carbides, and other intermetallic phases, such as sigma phase) on the grain boundary. Such precipitation can produce zones of reduced corrosion resistance in the immediate vicinity.
This mainly occurs with incorrect heat treatment service, materials are liable to crack or fail by intergranular corrosion (IGC) much more rapidly than properly treated materials. In any case the mechanical properties of the structure will be seriously affected. ARCZON can carry out testing as per ASTM A262, ASTM A923, ISO 3651 and ASTMG28 standards.
During services if the material exhibits localized pits or gaps on its surface, pitting or crevice corrosion may be the culprit. Pitting corrosion is characterized localizes pit holes, and crevice corrosion occurs where two materials meet. Material resistance to pitting and crevice should be assessed before its usage. ARCZON provide pitting and corrosion test based on ASTM G48 .
