Kinectrics Expands Corrosion Assessment Laboratory

March 07, 2014

Kinectrics has installed a new state-of-the-art Corrosion Assessment Laboratory for testing and assessment of environmentally-assisted degradation mechanisms in nuclear materials--including radioactive ex-service materials.

The new Kinectrics corrosion assessment facility enables the detection and evaluation of conditions that facilitate initiation of Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC), and measurement of crack growth rate with varying ECP, pH, loading and environmental conditions.

The new facility expands Kinectrics corrosion analysis capabilities and provides advanced testing services to support practical maintenance strategies for the nuclear industry.
