R-TECH Materials has extensive experience in the independent testing of materials during the construction phase of a variety of nuclear contracts. We are particularly experienced in the testing of couplers according to the Sellafield Engineering Standard.
We regularly test prestressing steel from many of the UK nuclear reactors as part of their ongoing condition assessment.
R-TECH Materials has conducted a number of laboratory based failure investigations for gas-fired power stations. We have also been involved in condition assessment of process vessels for the nuclear power industry.
We have provided laboratory investigation services to a major legal case related to failure of power station turbine blades.
