Corrosion Profilometry Is Application Of The Year

With the Nace Corrosion Conference only weeks away Nanovea highlights pitting corrosion measurement as its most popular profilometry application of 2014. The Nanovea Profilometer has quickly become the choice in the corrosion community for its accurate and reliable measurement. Primary area of interest include pitting depth, volume, area and density.

Hardness Distribution of Hardened Metal Using Nanoindentation

In this application, the Nanovea Mechanical Tester in nanoindentation mode is used to measure the
hardness distribution of the hardened surface on the cross section of a surface hardened metal.

Hard Metal Wear Evaluation Using Tribometer

In this study, we simulated and compared the reciprocating wear behaviors of saw blades to
showcase the capacity of Nanovea Tribometer in measuring the coefficient of friction and wear
rate of surface hardened metals in a controlled and monitored manner.

Corrosion Surface Analysis Using 3D Profilometry

In this application the Nanovea PS50 Profilometer is used to analyze the surface morphology of the
samples after service in corrosive environment. Surface roughness, materials loss and pits on the
sample surface are measured to provide more insight in the corrosion mechanism.
