Metallurgical Analysis

North Iron Engineering can reverse engineer an unknown pipe identity from the material characteristics in order to regenerate data from Material Test Reports (MTR)! Ask for more details on how this is possible.

North Iron uses metallography testing to identify stress-induced corrosion cracking, strain aging, creep stress, and hydrogen induced cold cracking.

PHMSA Regulation 192.607 Compliance

PHMSA stands for Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and they lay down the law, literally and figuratively. Updates to PHMSA regulations can be hard to navigate because they are complex and open to interpretation.

North Iron Engineering has developed a plan to help companies implement regulation 192.607 which requires pipeline operators to documentation of materials properties and attributes. This means testing and creating documentation for any pipes that do not already have it. There are several ways that we could help you address this, so please reach out if you have any questions or want to talk about this more in depth.
