Failure Investigations

Anti Corrosion Technology (ACT) works jointly with the end user to inspect, investigate, evaluate and assess any given failure.

ACT adopts a systematic engineering approach by providing the end user with a final report highlighting the root cause of the failure identfying whether it is application or service related. This report includes a comprehensive remedial action plan on both short and long term implementation. Examples of application related versus service related failures are shown below in Figures 1 and 2.
