Technical Papers

Paper presented by Ketan Upadhyaya, Paresh Haribhakti, Jaidev Patel and V K Bafna. The paper discusses the methodology for more precise judgment of tube condition with individual rating for replacement planning by correlating Automated Ultrasonic Scanning (AUS) results, outer diameter measurement results, tube bowing quantification and microstructural characterization.
Remaining life of the components in high temperature service is a need of process industries considering the cost of the new equipment, reliability and safe operation of plants. Equipment remains in operation beyond designed life considering the original safety margins. With advancements in technology and knowledge of metallurgy, it is possible to find out the metal degradation behaviour against the life limiting damages as well as active and potential damage mechanisms.

Paresh Haribhakti presented a paper on use of in-situ metallography for plant health assessment studies and failure investigations at the 13th Middle East Corrosion Conference and Exhibition (13MECC) 2010 which was held from 14-17 February 2010 at the Gulf International Convention Center in Bahrain.
A presentation designed to showcase India as a destination for contract research and material testing services.
This technical white paper provides an extensive study of the different types of material and component failures observed in industrial enterprises. This white paper also provides solutions to manufacturing problems and advises on selecting the appropriate materials to improve overall product quality, reduce costs, and enhance customer satisfaction. It also discusses welding problems and offers solutions to improve the weld process.
Failures are costing Indian and Middle-East plants and manufacturing units billions of dollars a year and are draining the productivity potential of the respective nations. TCR presents their methodical approach to determine the mode and root cause of failures.
