Offering you Sour Gas ageing expertise to meet the needs of today's demaning environment 

Sour Gas Testing

Introduced in 2015 our demanding environment ageing facility allows us to offer a flexible service to meet your required test conditions including exposure to sour gas mixtures for oilfield applications. Our fully equipped analytical suite gives you the opportunity to better understand the resistance of materials in sour service conditions.

To complement our range of material compatibility assessment and environmental ageing, our demanding environment facility allows the testing of elastomeric and thermoplastic materials in highly corrosive, sour gas environments. Offering a flexible service to accommodate your desired conditions we can also offer the provision of bespoke gas mixtures and solvent types for use in specific programmes where required. In addition to physical property assessment our fully equipped analytical suite allows us to provide solutions to future material development and identify strategies that offer improved in-service life.
