Applied metallurgy

Contribution to problem solving   |   Material characterization and selection   |   Customer / supplier team solution


Applied metallurgy consists of a detailed study of a piece of equipment and its immediate environment in order to fully understand the acting mechanical forces and the chemical products involved in the failure or deterioration of an alloy. Such a study allows our customers not only to solve their problems, but also to eliminate any risk of reoffending. Applied metallurgy also aims to assist our customer in choosing the best alloy for their intended application.


Mandate exemples
  1. Professional consultation for the choice of alternative alloys for hammerhead tips and electrolysis vessel deflector panels in an aluminum plant.
  2. Characterization of ground attack components for ore loaders in the mining industry.
  3. Study of the deterioration phenomenon of the piping of a fire sprinkler system in a manufacturing plant.
