Becht staff include over ten senior materials experts with expertise in applications including power, refining, petrochemical and chemical facilities, and materials including metals, coatings and linings, and nonmetals such as refractories, thermoplastics (e.g. high density polyethylene) and reinforced thermosetting resins (e.g. fiberglass). Our services include material selection, establishing operating envelopes for equipment, failure analysis, remaining life assessment, and establishing deterioration mechanisms and their associated probabilities for risk based inspection and development of equipment reliability plans. We are experts in modifications to existing chemical processes to alleviate and control corrosion that allows continued operation of existing equipment. We are experts in the equipment requirements for processing corrosive crudes (e.g. high TAN crudes such as Doba crude) as well as material applications for high temperature services such as steam cracking furnaces and furnaces to produce synthesis gas.
