Update to MEE website

posted April 2016

A fire inside a three story stainless steel chamber is the subject of the latest case study added to our webpage.  The goal of the evaluation was to determine what material required replacement or repair, and what material could remain in service. Thus, the evaluation could only be nondestructive. This required an on-site investigation and in situ metallographic examination.

With materials engineering expertise in the behavior of stainless steel under certain conditions ( in this case, elevated temperatures in a carbon-rich environment) and in the analysis of metallographic images, we were able to provide the client with the information he needed to make informed decisions on the future use of this equipment.
