A number of compnents in Chemical Plants & Petrochemical Industries are either exposed to a high temperature or to cyclic pressure and thermal loading, especially when starting up and shutting down. Both of these influencing factors limit the service life. The assessment of the residual life of components subjected to stress in operation is important for the safety of the plants. MCG uses following techniques for carrying out RLA Studies :      Visual Inspection  Non-Destructive Examination  Liquid Penetrant Inspection  Magnetic Particle Inspection  Ultrasonic Inspection  In-Situ Metallography
