Mechanical Failure Investigation

ABMS Consultants can be your technical expert to support you during a mechanical failure investigation after an incident. ABMS can validate the element that caused the failure, either by doing simple tests and taking measures or by completing a detailed and thorough analysis.

Realisations :

  1. Automotive Car Lift Failure
    Following a deadly work incident, we were chosen to conduct both an investigation and a test on an automotive car lift. We had to determine if the car lift had defects that could impact its acceptance to various standards for this kind of equipment.

  2. Hydroelectric Turbine Water Hammer
    Following a water hammer in a hydroelectric turbine, important damage was induced to the internal components. For each turbine part, ABMS realised an investigation, inspection, evaluation of the damages and wrote a replacement or repair procedure. ABMS also suggested a few improvements.
  3. Cracked Turbine Shaft
    Following a major crack discovered on a turbine shaft, ABMS completed a thorough study of the shaft, including a corrosion-fatigue analysis. Afterwards, ABMS designed a temporary solution that allowed a quick and safe re-operation of the turbine during one year. ABMS then designed a new turbine shaft with a planned operation of at least 40 years.
