HPHT (autoclave) test facilities for testing of metals, coatings, polymers, composites and assemblies/ components.

In our HPHT test facility, we perform high pressure high temperature testing (i.e. autoclave testing) of metals, coatings, polymers, composites and assemblies/components in aggressive environments.

We have comprehensive experience in designing fit for purpose qualification test-methods, and accelerated durability testing, for various applications. With our state-of-the art test equipment we offer tests in e.g. sour-and sweet environments, acidic- and alkaline environments, with flow of gas or liquid, high gas loading, under bending or tension, with rotation, with chemical/inhibitor dosing, mixed gas environment and etc.

The provided tests include:

  • Electrochemical testing at HPHT e.g. corrosion speed (mm/year), electrocatalytic behaviour/performance
  • Hydrogen induced cracking (HIC)
  • Hydrogen Induced Stress Cracking (HISC)
  • Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC)
  • Sulphide stress cracking (SSC)
  • Autoclave test system with flow
  • Customised testing
  • Standardised testing according to e.g. EN, ASTM and NACE

We hold experience in supplying test solutions for:

  • Power-to-Gas industries, e.g. components for water electrolysis systems
  • Bio-to-Oil industries, e.g. pyrolysis and hydrothermal liquefaction
  • Geothermal industries
  • Biogas- and waste handling
  • Pharmaceutical and food industry
  • Chemical and petrochemical industries
  • Cleantech industry
  • Pyrolysis, combustion, and motors/engines
  • Paper and pulp industry
  • Oil and gas industry
  • Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
