Corrosion Evaluation

Corrosion and environmental degradation are complex topics that require a fundamental understanding of the interaction of the materials and their service environments. The engineers at MEE have that knowledge and experience.

Corrosion on Propane Burner Pipe 50XCorrosion of metallic components costs the world economy over one trillion dollars every year. The engineers at MEE have evaluated corrosion damage in a broad range of materials and different service applications. This experience is essential in our support of your projects whether through failure analysis or evaluation of alternative materials for a specific application. In addition, our laboratory has facilities for corrosion testing using simulated service environments and electrochemical methods to support engineering evaluation projects. MEE brings a breadth of scientific experience paired with a state-of-the-art laboratory to support your project’s success.

Typical applications for MEE corrosion expertise:

  • Inspection of stainless steel chemical process tank for pitting corrosion
  • Evaluation of corrosion in copper tubing for residential water
  • Failure analysis of stress corrosion cracking in brass plumbing fittings
  • Analysis of pitting corrosion in implanted superelastic alloy medical device
  • Galvanic corrosion of aluminum truck trailer frames
  • Electrochemical corrosion testing of implantable medical devices
