Noble Engineering Services has a Metallurgical Laboratory to determine the physical and chemical properties of components. Metallurgy is used in Failure Analysis and Positive Material Identification.
Failure Analysis is the process of collecting and analysing material and fracture data from failed components to determine the cause of a failure, with the intention of determining failure modes and corrective actions.
Positive Material Identification (PMI) is the analysis of a metallic alloy to determine material composition. Noble Engineering Services uses Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES).
