Exova opens revamped Aberdeen laboratory

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Exova has opened its revamped Aberdeen laboratory. The company has invested more than £100,000 ($164,000) to expand its range of oil and gas services to now include fracture mechanics testing for its international offshore clients.

The service offering has expanded with the introduction of elevated tensile testing, crack tip open displacement testing, and investment in a scanning electron microscope.

The fracture mechanics service advances the laboratory’s welding capabilities. The introduction of the elevated tensile testing allows businesses to determine the materials’ characteristics when testing at temperatures above room temperature. Scanning electron microscope testing is a tool for investigative failure and forensic analysis.
