Ferrite testing is a fast, inexpensive, non-destructive, and an accurate way to measure delta ferrite content in austenitic and duplex stainless steels. Proper ferrite content provides a balance between ductility, toughness, corrosion resistance and crack prevention. Heat, pressure and caustic environments require materials and welds with very high metallurgical integrity. A correct ferrite measurement can help to avoid both solidification cracking and corrosion in stainless steel welds, pipes, plates, pressure vessels and petrochemical components. When ferrite content is too high, stainless steel can lose ductility, toughness, and corrosion resistance – especially at high temperatures. If ferrite content is too low, stainless steel welds become susceptible to hot cracking or solidification cracks. In duplex stainless steel welds, a deficit of ferrite content can also reduce weld strength and contribute to the development of stress corrosion cracks.

Alternate Systems provides high quality calibration services that will make sure your ferrite testing is both accurate and reliable. Alternate Systems utilizes NIST-traceable master standards. Call us today and find out how we can help!

Local QSHE Manager

“To Alternate Systems,

I wanted to take this opportunity to commend you for your contribution to our facility’s efforts – in our 2014 corporate review, our facility was given exemplary marks for our processes regarding the control and maintenance of monitoring and recording devices within the warehouse; our high performance in these areas is made possible by your company’s diligent work in keeping our equipment calibrated and in excellent condition. I can personally attest to the knowledge, patience, and work ethic your company brings to bear in tending to our needs and helping us ensure that we are able to surmount any issues that could affect our business. See below for an excerpt from our most recent audit listing the “Best in Class” designations we received in the areas of measuring equipment control and maintenance:

IMTE – Control of Monitoring and Measuring Devices: Very thorough control of the temperature and scale equipment tracking, calibration and maintenance. Very critical in a GXP site.

Temperature Control and Monitoring: Very robust / compliant system in place for Temperature Mapping, Control, Maintenance and oversight.

Warmest Regards,

Alex Gaskin
