Residual life evaluation of power plant components has been conventionally conducted by using nondestructive or mechanical methods that require fairly large samples extracted from the components. A recently developed mechanical method is the one that uses an approx. 2 mm diameter miniature specimen, which will minimize the effect to the components and is less expensive. KMTL has been conducting research and development for the methods and machines using an even smaller 1 mm diameter specimen, receiving good reputation from domestic and international suppliers.
