Structural investigation technique to highlight inhomogeneities, mechanical and metallurgical anomalies.
ISPECO also offers this structural investigation technique among its services.
The replication is analyzed with an optical or electronic microscope (SEM) and the image is extracted through dedicated software.
The analysis of the microstructure of the surface can highlight inhomogeneities, mechanical and metallurgical anomalies of the test surface.
Metallographic replications are normally carried out on equipment (reactors, boilers, furnaces, pipes, etc.) subject to CREEP; metal structures that display deformation problems and structural changes due to operation at high temperatures to monitor the life of the component and prevent breakage during operation.
