Providing a Variety of Technical
Services for Your Specialized Needs

Corrosion Research
Corrmet facility has numerous specialized custom-made autoclaves for simulation of a corrosive environment. High pressure to 10,000 psi, high temperature to 900 °F with pressurized gases such as H2S, CO2 and CH4 and various liquids.
Corrmet has several rotary agitated autoclaves to mix the contents of a vessel while under pressure & temperature

Testing of Steel for Wet H2S Services
The evaluation of steels for wet H2S services is one of the specialized services that is routinely performed for the steel mills, pipeline, and refining industries, and pressure vessel fabricators. Corrmet has been selected by the oil and gas industry to perform a series of full scale tests for evaluation of HIC resistance of plate steels for pressure vessels, pipeline steels, and forged steel fittings.
Testing includes:
* Hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) per NACE TM0284-96 in synthetic sea water solution or TMO177 solution.
*Sulfide stress cracking (SSC) per NACE TM0177-96, tensile, bend beam, C-ring and SOHIC.
* SSC test per ASTM G-39 (bent-beam stress-corrosion) using either TM0284 or TM0177solution. *Elastomer compatibility tests ( API, ASTM, NACE ).

Inhibitor Evaluation
Low temperature wheel test. high temperature, high pressure wheel test (500°F, 10,000 psi), Static and Dynamic thermal stability, Solubilities test, Emulsification test, Acid inhibitor test, Side stream testing (on- site investigation). Electro-chemical technique to evaluate performance of inhibitors. High pressure, high temperature electrochemical studies of chemicals, corrosion resistance of alloys and coating in a variety of environments.
Several rotating autoclaves are available for electro-chemical study of inhibitors, velocity effects and erosion corrosion.
