ACCURATE AND RELIABLE IN-SITU METAL STRENGTH VERIFICATION
MMT offers fast and reliable field testing services with our patented Hardness, Strength, and Ductility (HSD) Tester which provides customers with essential material data for their assets. If you have a preferred NDE service provider, MMT offers a complete training program that fully certifies technicians to perform all procedures and testing. All services include multiple nondestructive evaluation techniques listed below.
The HSD Tester is a portable, nondestructive implementation of frictional sliding that measures material strength.
Average grain size is measured using the mean-linear-intercept (mli) method with surface microscopy of the etched microstructure.
BASE METAL ASSESSMENT
The HSD Tester accurately measures the yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, and strain hardening of pipeline steel.
Chemical composition is measured through independent laboratory testing of burrs removed from the pipe surface.
MMT has developed a methodology that combines multiple NDE techniques into a classification algorithm to correctly identify the seam type for pipelines.
MMT offers a complete training program to NDE service providers that qualifies their technicians to perform all MMT field service procedures including nondestructive material strength testing with the HSD Tester.
