Post-weld Heat Treatment

To reduce instances of hydrogen induced cracking (HIC) following the welding of a critical piece of equipment, use Versa’s post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) service. Post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) is a process that helps reduce the risk of fracturing, cracking, and stress in the weld and parent metals of a piece of equipment. Although many materials […]

Refractory Dry-out

When you need to complete the heating cycle on your refractory, call Versa Integrity Group. The large majority of refractories are rammed, casted, or gunned in the field. As a result of this manufacturing process, refractories require “drying out” on location. The dry out constitutes of a heating cycle that is applied to remove excess […]

Welding Preheat Treatment

Just like PWHT, welding preheat treatment can significantly reduce the risk of cracking in parent and weld metals. Welding preheat treatment, not unlike PWHT, is a process that reduces the inherent risks of hydrogen cracking, shrinkage stress, and other damage mechanisms that regularly occur during the welding process. Welding preheat treatment works differently however by […]

In science, the Combustion method is used to determine the elemental composition (more precisely empirical formula) of a pure organic compound by combusting the sample under conditions where the resulting combustion products can be quantitatively analyzed. Our Heat Treat division uses this same practice on a larger scale, testing industrial materials and metals by subduing those materials under […]
