Main Directions of Scientific Investigations

Research and experimental development works in the area of welding and related technologies (weld deposition, high-concentration thermal sources treatment for materials surface melting etc.); NDT inspection, technical diagnosis, equipment and metal construction remaining life assessment, testing of welding and base material.


Provided Services

Designing, fabrication and reparation of the production prototype equipment for welding, related technology and materials processing; expert research-development-test-and-evaluation work; working out production technological documentation, technical regulatory legal acts; certification of the welding technological processes, welding engineering specialists (welding works managers), welding operators and heat-treaters - mobile units operators of welded connection thermal treatment (license of Gosprom­nadzor No 06-43К-2012), which includes those in compliance with the requirements of European and in­ternational standards; nondestructive inspection (visual, capillary, radiographic, ultrasonic), mechanical testing and metallurgical survey of the parent metal and welded interconnection (accreditation certifi­cate of the instrumentation center BY/112 of 31.03.2008); making new composite materials in the form of powders and coatings of them on the basis of metalline dispersed production wastes as well as wearproof coatings of them for restoration and strengthening machine components; tech­nology developing of composite wearproof coatings application by way of cathodic electrodeposition; technology elaboration of plasma-sprayed coating application with consequent treatment with highly concentrated energy flux.


Major Achievements

RTL WRTNM keeps scientific ties with "Physical-Technical Institute of NAS of Belarus", "Grodno State University n. a. Yanka Kupala", "Brest State Technical University".

The major customers: JSC "Gazprom Transgaz Belarus", JSC "Mostostroy", Holding "Belavtomaz", JSC "MAPID", Gosatomnadzor and others.

RTL WRTNM is the head science-and-research body on welding, quality control and personnel qualifi­cation on the sites of Gospromnadzor.

The laboratory disposes a modern complex for sample preparation and metallographic investiga­tions, equipment for materials and welded conjunctions mechanical testing, instrumentations for X-Ray and ultrasound inspection, measuring hardness and micro-hardness, wall thickness measure, equipment for plasma arc cutting and welding equipment.
