Failure Analysis

Failure Analysis

Failure analysis is a comprehensive multi-discipline approach to evaluate and investigate a failed component part or assembly structure design. This approach involves Qualitest’s Engineers evaluating both the Material and Mechanical aspect of the failure occurrence so as to identify the potential root cause. It is base on the accurate identification of the failure root cause that an appropriate corrective solution can be implemented.

Qualitest offers Failure Analysis and Materials Engineering services to clients from various industries. Qualitest provides Root Cause Analysis, Surface Analysis & Electron Microscopy, NDE/NDT, Environmental Test, Process Improvements, Chemical Analysis, and Counterfeit Parts Identification.

We support a wide range of industries, including Marine, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Utilities, and Infrastructures etc. With more than 100 years of combined experience in analytical engineering services, our labs will get you the right answer the first time.  Our Labs staffed with engineers, scientists, and technicians from a variety of disciplines, including Welding engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and Material Engineers.

Qualitest Canada provides complete analysis, testing, technical reporting, and expert witness testimony services to investigate failures in mechanical equipment and structures. Our clients include owner users, equipment manufacturers, equipment users, plants, law firms, and insurance companies. Our extensive experience in root cause analysis and testing, augmented by our in-depth understanding of the design and performance aspects of mechanical equipment, enables us to provide a complete failure analysis service to our clients.

Qualitest Canada’s staffs take a disciplined approach in identifying whether a failure is caused by design deficiencies, material defects, operational overloads, abuse, misapplication, inadequate maintenance, or use beyond design life.

We conduct tests in our Surrey, BC and Nisku, AB laboratories in which we deliberately take equipment to failure in order to confirm the root cause. In some cases, the objective of a failure analysis is to identify the limiting component so that design modifications can be developed to improve performance and reliability of the equipment.
