TCR Engineering Services and its associate companies will be exhibiting at the Fourth Middle East Nondestructive Testing Conference and Exhibition (4MENDT 2007) which is being held at the Gulf International Convention Center, Kingdom of Bahrain from December 2 to 5, 2007. This event is being organized by the Saudi Arabian Section of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (SAS-ASNT) and the Bahrain Society of Engineers.
TCR Engineering Services (A leading ISO 17025 accredited independent materials testing laboratory) and TCR Advanced Engineering Services from India, TCR Kuwait and TCR Arabia from Saudi Arabia will be based in stall # H07 at the exhibition.
TCR will showcase its NDT services at the exhibition including Automated UT using the Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD), Ultrasonic Testing, Magnetic Particle Testing, Helium Leak Testing, Dye Penetrant, Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL), Positive Material Identification (PMI), In-situ Metallography (Metallographic Replication), Pre and Post Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT) and more. Senior level representatives from TCR will be on-hand at this event to answer and respond to all technical and commercial inquiries.
The theme for this conference is "Advanced NDT Solutions: Challenges and Implementations." The conference and exhibition will focus on the challenges of identifying, developing and implementing of advanced NDT technologies on the petrochemical industry facilities. The highlight of the Fourth Middle East Nondestructive Testing Conference and Exhibition will be the informative keynote address and plenary lectures by distinguished international figures in the field of NDT.
Mr. V.K. Bafna, Managing Director of TCR Engineering Services and Mr. Paresh Haribhakti will be presenting a paper at this conference on "In-Situ Metallography for Plant Health Assessment Studies and Failure Investigation."
As an NDE technique, In-situ metallography is considered important for assessing the health of the equipment, which operates under different plant conditions. The acceptance of in-situ microstructure assessment is from the fact that industry needs safe, trouble free and productive operations by adopting to predictive maintenance approach. The in-situ metallography has the strength to meet these requirements. Critical components of Oil and Petrochemical refineries, Power generation units, Fertilizers, Chemical industries are subjected to the variety of hostile environments that necessitates microstructure assessments to monitor in-service degradation.
The paper presented will allow a plant manager to understand the in-situ metallography technique in detail and assist them in conducting real-time component condition monitoring and health assessments.
