from different fields
Cormet has customers all over the world in many different fields. Three main categories can be identified from our client portfolio. Research institutes and universities have a wide spectrum of clients whose testing needs are fulfilled using Cormet’s equipment. Academic and independent research work is also one common use for our products.
Our innovative customers present their corrosion testing needs to us and Cormet’s engineers are more than happy to tackle these interesting challenges. Different types of testing needs appear frequently, and addressing those needs with easy-to-use and reliable testing equipment is our focus.
Below we have listed some of the project we have done during the past years.
Power generation industry
Customers from the nuclear power generation industry conventionally study material behaviour using slow strain rate tests (SSRT). Recently more and more attention has been paid to the investigation of (irradiation assisted) fracture-mechanical properties and fatigue tests in high-temperature high-pressure environments, even in supercritical water environments. Simulation of power-plant water chemistry using recirculation loops is of great importance.
Oil & gas and steel industry
Scientists focusing on the oil & gas and steel industries are often interested in the corrosive effects of H2S and CO2 on carbon steels. They are using HIC testing, constant-load instruments, four-point bending frames and SSRT instruments, as well as autoclaves and recirculation loops for this purpose. Controlled-flow instruments including rotating electrodes, jet-impingement instruments and high-speed loops are used to study flow-assisted corrosion and inhibitor performance.
University labs and research institutes
University labs and research institutes use a wide range of Cormet testing equipment to provide corrosion testing for their clients. These customers often undertake the most sophisticated and advanced testing, which means that customising the testing equipment plays a key role. University labs and research institutes serve clients from a wide variety of different industries.
