PMI with carbon detection in India

TCR Engineering Services in India has the portable optical emission spectrometer, ARC-MET 8000. The portable Optical Emission analyzer is designed to identify all the key elements in metals - especially where highest accuracy and/or the analysis of light elements like C, Al, S, P, Mg, Si is needed and when sorting low alloys and aluminums. It is ideal, for example, for separation of 316 H (>0.04% C) and 316 L (<0.03% C).Using the portable Optical emission spectrometer, Arc Met 8000 the experienced technicians from TCR can analyze Carbon in SS wherever they can get a good 25 x 25mm flat surface. Please note that ArcMet cannot be used for smaller size pipes and fittings.  Its best performance is for larger than 50 NB size.  For optical emissions based PMI, the inspectors from TCR will need 99.9% pure argon gas as well. It is important to note that for use of portable OES, surfaces need to be grinded and flattened to at least a 20mm x 20mm size in order to generate a spark from the…

Inspection of Cranes

TCR Engineering Services in India, has a defined quality assurance practice for inspection of cranes which includes Design Consideration such as Determination of stress Analysis, Load capacity and material strength as well as creating the Welding procedure.We will propose to depute an experienced Mechanical Engineer who will work out load distribution on various members of cranes along with our expert Welding Engineer to inspect the welding.We also propose to get following NDT done to ensure good and sound weld quality.Fluorescent Magnetic Particle TestD P TestUltrasonic TestTCR is also in process of putting up system for actual stress measurement by STRAIN GUAGE Method and we can work out ways to make measurement of actual stress present in a member at a particular spot.  This facility is expected to be installed by Mid February.

Ultrasonic Corrosion Mapping in India

TCR Engineering Services in India, NDT service offering includes  detecting loss of thickness from the ID area at various points are suspected to be "High-Risk." TCR can determine thickness loss on internal surface of piping due to corrosion and stagnant of fluids, and on outer radius of elbows due to erosion or corrosion in downstream piping in refineries using a time tested good solution of Ultrasonic Corrosion Mapping with UT flaw detector. We can scan the pipe bands adjacent to weld joints and complete OD surface of elbows, Tees and reducers. TCR also provides Ultrasonic Corrosion Mapping with Ultrasonic Flaw Detector at Adjacent to Weld joints (To access minimum remaining thickness of pipeline).  This is the good practice and followed by ARAMCO in KSA and KOC, KNPC in Kuwait.  TCR can make the quality procedure for the same with good reporting format and can submit the same for your approval if needed.TCR works with EPOCH LT and Krautkrammer machines for Ultrasonic flaw…

NDT Inspection of Reformer Tubes

TCR has secured a project to undertake NDT Inspection of 200 Reformer Tubes at a very prestigious client in India. As part of this project, the NDT Services division will depute Engineer / Technicians along with Instruments and Consumables at the site location. As part of the project, a Sr. Inspection Engineer from TCR will conduct in-depth visual examination and then proceed to take measurement of OD at every 3 meters and at ends in two places perpendicular to each other, i.e. at 8 locations on a 9 meter long tube for each of the 200 tubes. Ultrasonic  thickness  measurement  at  12,3,6  &  9  O’Clock position at both ends and 3m from each end, i.e. at 16 points on each of 200 tubes. Portable hardness measurement at all 200 tubes at 3 locations on each tube. Ferrite measurement at 3 locations on each tube. In-situ  metallography  at  10  locations  selected  by  the Client’s officers out of 200 tubes.All TCR personnel will carry all safety gadgets etc. with insurance etc.
