Root Cause Analysis of Design Failures of Products and Components

Engineering Services, LP (ES) performs evaluations of root cause analyses of failures world wide that are the result of poor design or the incorrect selection of construction materials used in the manufacturing of commercial or domestic equipment, machinery and components. Engineering Services, LP failure analysis experts, provides evaluation of design bases, material performance analysis and evaluation of construction and fabrication requirements according to recognized industrial standards.


Welding in Scotland.

Welding Failures
Engineering Services LP (ES) is an authority on all welding matters. Mr. Aaker has been responsible for developing welding processes, analyzing defect tolerance limits, failures analysis, welding procedures, development and quality control of production welding. ES is routinely staffed on major industrial projects to support welding requirements. One involvement was inspection performed for the Chevron Blind Faith Subsea equipment. Our background in welding includes the following recognized industrial codes: ASME, API, AWS and ANSI   Back to Top.Top

Materials and Construction
ES has developed, reviewed and edited material and construction specifications for many oil and gas projects worldwide. We routinely perform material analysis, as well as, remaining life assessments for critical processing and oil refining equipment.     Back to Top. Top

Riser Failure in Gulf of Suez.

Corrosion Control
ES routinely provides engineering assistance in the selection of materials to manage corrosion. We evaluate corrosion control matters and cathodic protection, onshore and offshore. Mr. Aaker has been responsible for developing corrosion control program, evaluation of corrosion failures and design of cathodic protection systems. We also perform CO2 calculations to establish corrosion allowances for process equipment.    Back to Top. Top

Plastic barrels.

Plastic Products
ES performs failure analysis on plastic components such as PVC.    PVC pipe is made from a plastic and vinyl combination material. The pipes are durable, hard to damage, and long lasting. A PVC pipe does not rust, rot, or wear over time. For that reason, PVC piping is most commonly used in water systems, underground wiring, and sewer lines. The smooth surface of the PVC pipe is also resistant to bacterial contamination, such a E. Coli.    Back to Top. Top
