We are an A2LA and ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory that identifies material chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical characteristics used to determine the safety, compliance and application suitability of materials. By utilizing destructive testing methods to analyze metals and alloys, our expert metallurgists can provide:
- Raw material validation
- Production issue solutions
- Finished and semi-finished good assessment
- Product failure analysis
- High-end metallurgical engineering services
The nuclear power industry and its suppliers use metals and alloys extensively, from off-the-shelf materials to complex alloys designed for specific purposes. Our highly trained team of metallurgists can analyze a wide array of materials, including:
Chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical testing help product manufacturers and end users confirm the performance capabilities and establish operating ranges to avoid failure. SGS MSi can examine and certify specimens to nearly any industry standard or customer-specific requirement, but our team has extensive experience with all nuclear industry-related specifications.
The equipment at our laboratory in Melrose Park, IL is calibrated regularly to ensure accuracy. Calibration records are available upon request.
All engineering reports contain a summary conclusion of our findings, any criterion supporting those results and, if appropriate, insights into possible failure avoidance. Striving to convey information in an easy-to-read format, we avoid technical jargon or hard-to-understand verbiage.
Whether you need routine materials testing or failure analysis, SGS MSi can deliver.
