Aries Marine and Engineering Services

MECHANICAL & METALLURGICAL SERVICES

ARIES MECHANICAL & METALLURGICAL LAB provides comprehensive range of mechanical and metallurgical services to various industries like Marine, Industrial, Oil & gas. We are well equipped with advanced testing equipment’s & in-house machine shop to conduct the tests as per ASTM, BS, BS EN, DIN, ISO or client/project specified standards.

Mechanical Testing (Destructive Testing) ​

    It’s necessary to test and measure the mechanical properties of engineering material before their intended application to elude unacceptable levels of failure or deformation.   Mechanical testing will allow determining the properties such as tensile characteristic, hardness, impact toughness, ductile to brittle temperature. These are necessary for engineering & design applications. The results of Mechanical testing will reflect the material behaviour in ideal conditions.

We ascertain the mechanical properties with carefully designed test methods, data analysis and experienced personal’s interpretation.

Applications

  • Marine Engineering and Fabrications: Material strength analysis , Grade verification, Welding procedure qualifications
  • Industrial Supply and Constructions: Product verification, MTC review, Grade confirmation, Welding procedure qualifications..etc
  • Oil & Gas projects: Product verification, Project requirements, Grade confirmation, Material strength analysis..etc
  • Aerospace industries :  Material strength analysis
  • Automobile industries : Failure analysis
  • Welding & Brazing Qualifications: Weld strength  (According to ASME, BSEN ,ISO EN,API, DIN , ABS, DNVGL, LR …etc)

Tensile test ​

   This mechanical testing method is used to identify the basic properties of material like strength, yield point, elongation under uniaxial tensile load. This test will help to understand exact value of Yield Strength, Tensile Strength, % Elongation and reduction area of the material. This value used to interpolate behaviour of material during various type load condition.

  •  Uniaxial tensile testing
  •  Proof strength analysis for bolt
  •  Full size tensile testing 
  •  Room and high temperature tensile testing
  •  Tensile test for Plate, Pipe, tube, welded sample
 

Bend test

Used to evaluate both the ductility and soundness of a material. It is often used as a quality control test for butt-welded joints, having the advantage of simplicity of both test piece and equipment.

  •  Weld metal testing-  Rebend / root / face / side bend test
  •  Compression test
 

 Charpy Impact Test

Impact test validate the ability of material withstand during impact or sudden changes in load, it also help to find ductile to brittle transition temperature of the material, this will help to identify the materials behaviour in low temperature application.

  •  Subzero temperature
  •  Room temperature


 
 

Hardness test

It’s a measure of a material’s resistance to localized plastic deformation.

  •  Rockwell Hardness Test
  •  Vickers Hardness Test
  •  Brinell Hardness Test
  •  Onsite hardness measurement
  •  Non-destructive micro hardness
 

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION ANALYSIS​

The materials elemental composition is very important factor in mechanical property of the material. Optical emission spectrometry (PMI/OES) will help to identify the material chemical composition.

The onsite PMI-OES equipment having an advantage of testing complex shaped materials. The analysis can be possible at site without destruction.

  •  Chemical  composition detection
  •  Onsite material verification 
  •  Unknown material identification
  •  Carbon detection from Ferrous and Nonferrous materials

METALLOGRAPHY (REPLICA METALLOGRAPHY)​

Replica metallurgy is a non-destructive metallographic technique, performed “on site” or in the “field” on components that are too large to bring to the laboratory. Generally, these components are still being used in service or must be returned to service. This method used to predict the 

  •  Evolution of microstructural changes in a component during its lifetime assessing
  •  Creep damage in elevated-temperature components
  •  Assessment of turbine rotors/blades, steam piping, heat exchangers, chemical reactors, pressure vessels, etc.
  •  To monitor quality of purchased components.
