Bureau Veritas help clients to acquire detailed knowledge of the materials used in their components, equipment or facilities, which ultimately ensures a better understanding on performance expectations throughout their life cycle.
In the industrial sector today, there is an ever increasing demand for technical performance and reliability in critical plant and equipment. Materials optimisation is key for a manufactured product possessing enhanced properties tailored to meet the demands of an industrial application. In fact, monitoring is needed at all key steps of the life cycle: design, sourcing, completion and maintenance.
Bureau Veritas help clients in the industrial sector acquire detailed knowledge of the alloys (ferrous & non-ferrous) used in their plant and equipment, so that they can better manage critical components throughout their life cycle. This can be achieved by:
- Material specifications
- Recommendations on design and materials selection
- Optimisation through alloy modification to enhance material properties (i.e. wear, corrosion, strength)
- Heat treatment and hardening
- Selective treatment (i.e. hardfacing)
