Corrosion and failure analysis

Construction or component failures can have many causes. Such degradation can be the result of corrosion, bad weld design, the use of inappropriate materials or other shortcomings.
Our objectivity and multidisciplinary expertise ensure the identification of the problem’s true root cause.

The Belgian Welding Institute (BWI) has the knowledge and the equipment to find the true cause. We have the necessary qualified people and equipment for non-destructive testing, metallography, fractography and corrosion testing.  On top of the failure analysis to find the route cause and type of corrosion, leak or breakage, the BWI can advise on preventive measures to take.
