About Element Milan
As one of the leading providers of testing services to the Energy sector, Element Milan has over 40 years’ experience in supporting customers with a comprehensive range of materials testing, failure analysis, engineering consulting, and welding services.
Working in ever-deeper waters and harsher environments, Element Milan specializes in qualifying materials and fabrication procedures to meet industry standards and to ensure that assets operate as expected when deployed and are safe, compliant and fit for purpose.
The qualification methods used include
- mechanical testing
- corrosion testing
- stress rupture and creep testing
- fatigue testing
- chemical analysis
- fracture mechanics
- metallographic examination
Tensile tests, impact tests, Surface Crack Tension (SCT), Compact Tension (CT), fracture mechanics, and fatigue testing are also carried out at cryogenic temperatures using special chambers designed to keep temperature as low as (−269°C).
The laboratory conducts fracture mechanics tests in sour service environments to provide customers with data for ECA/FFS and recreate the behavior of materials behavior in real operating conditions.
