Find out more about Hydrogen Embrittlement
William Hackett, a leader in the supply of offshore lifting hoists and chains, has released an industry report to help minimise the risk of Hydrogen Embrittlement (HE) and Stress Induced Corrosion Cracking (SICC). The report includes guidance on material choices used in topside and subsea lifts, and is seen as a major step forward in increasing awareness for offshore operators of the risks associated with HE and SICC.
Ben Burgess, Director of William Hackett Lifting Products, says, “There is a real concern across industry regarding the impact of HE and SICC on chains and links used in lift and hoist projects across offshore environments.”
Peer-reviewed by a number of organisations and authorities, the report – which can be downloaded at https://williamhackett.co.uk/H-embrittlement – takes a major step forward to explain the critical impact of HE.
