THE PHOTOGRAPH ABOVE IS EVIDENCE OF BIOLOGICAL CORROSION THAT OCCURRED IN STAINLESS STEEL BELLOWS, INSTALLED IN THE FIRE WATER SYSTEMS OF THE LOUIS ARMSTRONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – NEW ORLEANS. ENGINEERING SERVICES, L.P. FAILURE ANALYSIS REVEALED THE HOLES WHICH WERE INITIALLY BELIEVED TO BE SABOTAGE, WERE INDEED THE RESULT OF BIOLOGICAL CORROSION OF STAINLESS STEEL.

Corrosion engineers provide independent expert opinions regarding material failure analysis. Forensic investigation of your product’s failure would be accomplished by relying on state-of-the art analytical laboratory equipment.

Establishing the root cause analysis of any material failure can be readily performed through use of Engineering Services, L.P.’s extensive experience in providing metallurgical failure determinations, corrosion expert witness and litigation support.

Engineering Services, L.P.’s failure analysis determinations have been applied to the oil and gas industry, consumer products, refinery, pipelines, piping systems, structural welding, automotive, heat exchangers, marine, food process equipment, and industrial machinery.

Corrosion failures frequently point to a recognized root cause. Often, predictions of corrosion rates can be determine based on calculations.

Below are links to common calculations that are often relied on to make determination:
