Hydrogen Laboratory

Hydrogen Laboratory
Innerpage Title Banner

The Hydrogen Laboratory allows for the testing of materials for corrosion as a result of exposure to hydrogen. This can be carried out at a variety of temperatures and strain rates on different materials. This laboratory offers corrosion testing, both in accordance with industry codes and standards and using in-house designed and built bespoke methods beyond the scope and limitations of existing industry codes and standards. As well as producing test data, this lab can offer services for the interpretation of results. In addition to this, the laboratory can undertake failure investigation and analysis of corroded materials, plus the simulation of corrosion mechanisms including accelerated testing and advice regarding design and implementation of corrosion mitigating measures.

These tests provide information for material validation and integrity to assess the effects of hydrogen on performance, static strength and creep.
