Investigations and assessments

An understanding of both processes and materials is required to be able to produce the right data

Service Life & Failure Prevention

Correctly handled, damage can increase service life

Understanding means that you don't have to guess.

Stringent demands are sometimes placed for being to able make decisions based on facts. Can we continue to operate a facility despite a minor failure or are we jeopardizing safety? Is it profitable to overhaul a machine or is it better to buy a new one?
Understanding of both processes and materials is necessary in gathering input data and making the right decisions. DEKRA conducts failure prevention studies and service life assessments based on for example, material and corrosion knowledge, strength calculations as well as through various testing methods.
- We have a unique network, and working together, we can resolve the trickiest problems. We don't stop until we've gathered enough background data to provide a reasonable explanation and advice, says Bernt Åke Johansson.
