Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for 2009

We are about to end an eventful year for our company. In our 35th year of
operation, TCR has expanded and continued on its intended vision of becoming
one of the top 5 material testing laboratory in the world. Your contribution
to the company's growth is even more appreciated given the current
challenging financial times. In 2008, we won major projects in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Malaysia,
Kazakhstan, Nigeria. In India, we helped the Nuclear Scientists of our
country in order to study the corrosion behavior. The third party inspection
department at TCR Engineering in Mumbai is rapidly gaining importance and
market share. TCR Institute of Materials Technology now runs a defined
course schedule for NDT training. TCR Advanced is now a market leader in
providing failure analysis and in-situ metallography. TCR Arabia in Saudi Arabia is approved by Saudi Aramco and SABIC and
continues to make a difference to all projects. TCR ATSCO has successfully
completed a oil tank farm storage fabrication project…

Metallographic Analysis Of Crane Wire

A customer in India recently asked TCR Engineering Services to investigate the cause of damage of a crane’s runner wire rope. The client of TCr collected a piece of the wire as a sample which clearly indicated the frayed condition of this Runner Wire. The client asked TCR if they would consider the worn-out condition of this wire rope due to excessive working with lack of adequate maintenance as appropriately required or a design/equipment failure.

As part of this investigative project, the engineering consulting team and expert metallurgists from TCR in India carried out a complete metallographic examination of the wire sample. TCR undertook tests such as Breaking load of sample wire, Dimensional verification of wire, Chemical composition and Micro examination in longitudinal and transverse directions. TCR also undertook the complete failure analysis study for the client.

TCR wins Third Party Inspection Project of Rigid Perlite Insulation products of Perma-Pipe Middle East

TCR Engineering Services in India has been awarded a repeat second order to perform third party inspection for Rigid Perlite Insulation products of Perma-Pipe Middle East (FZE) at their vendor locations in India. The inspection involves complete third party inspection of Perlite in accordance with ASTM C610. The inspectors from TCR will undertake visual inspection with dimensional measurements. During manufacturing, the inspectors will check the process for conformity and any process non-conformities shall be reported. When the Client's vendor in India does perform any tests like density, compressive or thermal conductivity, the inspector from TCR will witness the tests and will countersign the reports. TCR representative will check the conformance by joining two seams together so that minimum gap as per ASTM C 610 is followed. Due the fragile nature of Perlite, TCR inspectors will ensure that there are not be any cracks at the circumferential seam that will go up to the root, how…

TCR chairs session at Conference on Condition Monitoring

CII is organizing a Conference on Condition Monitoring on 27 June 2008 in
Hotel Express Residency, Alkapuri, Vadodara with the objective of helping
the process based industries in the central Gujarat zone understand and
adopt industry relevant condition-based monitoring practices. Central and
southern Gujarat is home to large number of chemical, petro-chemical,
pharmaceutical and fertilizer industries contributing roughly 60% of the GDP
of the state. Gujarat contributes nearly 50% the petro-chemical, 30% of
chemical and 30% of the fertilizer output of the country. With such a solid
national profile, it's but obvious for these industries in Gujarat to remain
competitive by adopting the latest technologies to prevent production down
time and enhance the asset utilization.In this backdrop, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is holding a one
day conference on 'Condition Monitoring' to discuss about the emerging
technologies in the field of maintenance practices with specific reference

Stainless pipes shipped without tests

5 June 2008 (Source: Steel Co. confirmed that it had shipped 550,000 stainless steel pipes without conducting required non-destructive testing for detecting defects and tests for ability to withstand hydraulic pressure and air pressure. The Nisshin Steel plant in Amagasaki of the western Japan prefecture of Hyogo failed to carry out the testing, mandatory under Japanese Industrial Standards and fabricated test data for some steel pipes manufactured at the plant in the past five years. A Nisshin Steel in house investigation of test data found that a total of 480,665 stainless steel pipes were shipped without non-destructive inspections or tests on hydraulic pressure out of 4,311,205 subject to such tests. Tests were also not conducted on 71,756 stainless steel pipes of 2,485,458 subject to air pressure resistance testing. Nisshin Steel is the third Japanese steelmaker at which testing data fabrication has been revealed, following similar cases late May at JFE Steel …

TCR bags project in Kazakhstan

Weatherford has awarded TCR Engineering a NDT services project in Aktau, Kazakhstan. The crew members with equipment have reached the site on May 19 and started work. As part of this project, an ARCMET 8000 has also been sent from TCR’s base in India to Kazakhstan. Using 99.9% pure argon gas, the crew members from TCR provide positive material identification and complete chemical composition on flat and round surfaces using adapters.
The TCR team members take extra case when using the Argon gas of 99.999% min purity. The gas flow also has to be controlled as per the instrument requirements, as even setting an improper flow rate can lead to improper purging, eventually leading to a deviation in the test results.

The team is also undertaking other NDT tests.

Here are some pictures of the crew:
