HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Fossil fuel, nuclear, and combined­ cycle power companies use materials and structures under demanding environmental conditions for long periods of time. As the years of service increase, the possibility of failure grows.

SwRI has extensive experience conducting power plant investigations. Programs range from identifying the cause of boiler tube, complex com­ pressor, and turbine component failures, to investigating radioactive components such as vent lines, pipes, and valves. This experience and an in-house radioactive materi­als laboratory make SwRI a leader in power industry failure analysis.
