The Key Steps in Restoring and Upgrading Transmission Assets
Osmose technicians are trained to identify and address many common structural defects before they pose a safety risk, including:
- Corrosion: External and internal corrosion can weaken the metal and reduce its load-carrying capacity.
- Fatigue: Fatigue can lead to stress fractures in the metal as a result of wind and other cyclical loading.
- Welding defects: Manufacturing and construction defects, such as incomplete fusion and porosity in welds, pose a risk to the structure's strength and performance.
- Buckling: This occurs when steel is subjected to compressive forces and can result in structural collapse.
- Misalignment: Improper installation often leads to misalignment, creating weak points that may increase the risk of failure over time.
