Surface Replication

KOC’s experienced metallurgical technicians perform surface replication, an evaluation to detect creep voids on plant equipment in the early stages of formation without damaging the component or cutting a sample. It is also effective for detection and evaluation of intergranular corrosion including IGSCC, micro cracking, carbide precipitation, carbonization, inclusions, damage caused by over temperature excursions or thermal, cycling and various other conditions. We provide information on-site to allow immediate corrective action, when required. When creep voids are detected early, you have adequate time to make operational changes to slow the creep void mechanism, repair or replace the components and plan for the future.
