Failure analysis and expert witness

We specialise in metallurgical failure analysis and have been involved in both large and small investigations. We will work with you and will advise on the best and most economic way of finding the cause of failure. We also have contacts with a number of accredited test laboratories and are able to organise both standard and more complex test programmes. We have also acted as an expert witness in a number of cases, as well as providing third party witness. Some examples of our work are:

  • Fatigue failure of a pressure outlet valve on a water treatment facility
  • The galling of steam bypass valve in a gas fired power station.
  • We acted as an expert witness on the anodising of domestic fittings
  • We worked with a Houston based certifying verification authority (CVA) working on behalf of the federal government providing third party witness to the manufacture of offshore equipment.
