Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) is a catastrophic form of corrosion that results from a combination of tensile stress and a corrosive environment. The cracking is invisible on the surface and therefore, failure of the affected material — steel, for example — can occur without warning.

Power Plant Research - SSRT series- Stress Corrosion Cracking occurs in corrosion during metal recombination due to the internal stress and the residual stress. So the corrosion test is significant to measure the strength, stiffness, toughness and resistance of metal in high temperature. SSRT (Slow Strain Rate Test) is used to measure metal corrosion and change caused by inner stress or residual stress while stress corrosion cracking.www.suflux.com

Power Plant Research - CTRS series. The most important problem of nuclear system design is no more than material exposure in corrosion environment. So reactor design that can withstand high temperature, high pressure and corrosion is overriding.   CTRS (Corrosion Test Reactor System) Series is the reactor for testing the stress corrosion cracking(SCC) process. Stress corrosion cracking is the growth of cracks in a corrosive environment. http://www.suflux.com/

Power Plant Research - LOOP series . Stress corrosion cracking (SCC) can lead to unexpected sudden failure of normally ductile metals subjected to a tensile stress, especially at elevated temperature in the case of metals. SCC is highly chemically specific in that certain alloys are likely to undergo SCC only when exposed to a small number of chemical environments.http://www.suflux.com/
