Welding Test Procedure

Sure Flow Equipment Inc. has developed numerous weld procedures to meet our clients particular specifications, targeted for specific or general applications. This would entail unique material specifications, specific weld processes, specific thicknesses and weld positions, specialized destructive testing, and NDE. Specialized destructive testing takes place at established/respected certified national/international laboratories.

Our weld procedures include such materials as: duplex stainless steels, Cr-Mo steels, titanium, Hastelloy, Cu-Ni, as well as carbon and stainless steels. All of the weld procedures are reviewed and certified by the provincial regulatory authority / ASME Authorized Inspection Agency, the TSSA.

Along with standard testing such as tensile tests, and bend tests we have extensive experience with:

  • Toughness Tests (Charpy V-Notch Impact Test)
  • Hardness Testing (NACE Standards)
  • Ferric Chloride Pitting Test
  • Ferrite Fraction Evaluation
  • Macro Examination
  • Microstructural Examination
  • Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) Test
  • Sulfide Stress Cracking (SSC) Test

Sure Flow Equipment Inc. has an ASME “U” Code Stamp Fabrication Shop and as well is an ISO 9001 Certified Company.  We have “CLEAN ROOM” facilities for the fabrication of specialty metals product.  All of our welding machines as well as our inspection equipment are calibrated.
