Scaled Solutions offer a wide variety of corrosion testing services. With a dedicated corrosion testing laboratory and team of staff, we have the capability to perform comprehensive corrosion consultancy, testing and inhibitor screening studies, with the test conditions and test methodologies tailored to suit customers’ specific requirements.

Maintaining the integrity of oilfield equipment is essential to its safe operation and to maximise the efficiency of production. This typically relies on careful material selection combined with chemical applications that either aim to shield the steel physically from the corrosion environment or to favourably alter that environment. To determine this, it is prudent to carry out a detailed background review, modelling and representative laboratory testing.

At Scaled Solutions we offer a range of services in order to adequately support this taking into account the key aspects from the field. Each project is tailored and designed for specific requirements, and utilises the knowledge of our in house experience and industry experts.

Reliable Corrosion Testing supported by cutting-edge technology.

We provide a full range of electrochemical and coupon weight loss laboratory techniques, both under ambient and elevated pressure conditions. Specialised services at Scaled Solutions include jet impingement, under-deposit corrosion, top-of-the-line corrosion, and volatile corrosion inhibitor content. These techniques are accompanied by the ability to conduct optical, 3D profilometry, scanning electron microscopy and pit depth measurements for pitting analysis. Related testing including foaming and emulsion tendency, production chemical interactions, thermal ageing and chemical and materials compatibility testing are also available. Testing is offered under sweet (CO2) and sour (H2S) conditions.

Electrochemical screening tests, include:
  • LPR bubble tests
  • Higher shear RCE testing
  • HPHT LPR tests
  • HPHT RCE tests

Weight loss tests, include:

  • Bubble tests
  • Ambient & HPHT rotating cage coupon weight loss tests
  • Rotating wheel tests
  • Material compatibility tests

Application-specific tests include:

  • Inhibitor partitioning
  • Film persistence
  • Jet impingement
  • Under deposit corrosion
  • Artificial pitting
  • Preferential weld corrosion
  • Volatile corrosion inhibitor content
