Expertise - Oil and Gas

Composite pipes used in the oil and gas industry.
Rifi solve all types of problems for the Oil and Gas sector by characterising the materials used by the industry. Composites are able to withstand the harsh subsea environment without corroding, whilst delivering lower overall weight.
Low temperature flexural testing of foam materials
The insulation used in LNG carriers and onshore facilities require experimental testing at -163 degrees C to certify their installation and service. Rifi draws on over 40 years of experience of characterising the thermo-mechanical performance of materials and components down to -269 degrees C.
NDT applied to composite testing
Rifi engineers test the performance of many types of composites and deploy optical and NDT (non-destructive testing) methods to inspect the failure mechanisms of these materials under static and fatigue loading.
