Metallurgical and Materials Engineering
Metallurgical Engineering is the study of the internal structure and engineering behaviour of metals and engineering materials. Metallurgical knowledge is applied to study the structural strength, environmental interaction, deformation behaviour and failure of in-service engineering components.
A comprehensive metallurgical consulting service encompassing all aspects of physical and mechanical metallurgy, materials engineering, welding and corrosion, is supplied by SecMet.
A team of experienced metallurgical experts are supported by a well-equipped metallurgical laboratory, enabling SecMet to provide a one-stop metallurgical service ranging from advanced failure investigations and Asset Integrity Management studies to basic material testing and certification. Due to our origins from the petrochemical industry, SecMet has developed specialist capabilities in the field of Risk Based Inspection (RBI), Fitness-for-service (FFS), Remaining Life Assessment (RLA), plant integrity assessment, as well as corrosion engineering, testing and monitoring.
Quality Engineering focuses on assuring the quality of welded fabrications through the various phases of a project, and ensure that all Legislative, Statutory, Health and Safety Standards and Client specific specifications are adhered to during project execution. The quality engineering department’s resources consist of metallurgists, welding engineers, inspectors of pressurised equipment (IPE’s) and quality control inspectors.
