Failure Analysis

At PITC we specialize in Root Cause Analysis.

With an understanding of the chemical and physical nature of polyethylene welds, the ability to analyze the external stress and our knowledge surrounding the testing of plastic piping products to failure.

PITC can investigate a failure and develop a sound technical assessment as to the Root Cause.

Sometimes it is necessary to go beyond a technical assessment and to recreate the failure under laboratory conditions.

This approach may be taken to better understand the Failure Mechanism or to support the development of an alternative product to eliminate the problem.

We are able to analyze the application and key in on the critical parameters that influence the performance.
