Nothing lasts forever. Especially not flowline and piping. Corrosion
surveys help companies
- Identify equipment that should be removed from service before it
- Measure the rate at which equipment is degrading so:
- Replacement budgets can be planned
- Costs associated with relatively destructive operations can be
estimated and billed accordingly
- Replacement equipment inventory needs can be estimated
- Meet regulatory requirements regarding vessel maintenance and
Rees NDT Inspection Services can help you plan and execute a corrosion survey
strategy for your equipment. We can document your equipment, band it with
stainless steel banding for identification purposes if required, and perform
ultrasonic wall thickness testing at specified points to establish a baseline
and thereafter detect corrosion and wear. Corrosion surveys of pressure
vessels are mandated by law in every jurisdiction we operate. As part of
many companies' Certificate of Recognition efforts, we have assisted them in
applying identifying banding on their production flowline. A
baseline survey of its condition is then conducted, and pieces that have exceeded their safe working corrosion allowances
are removed from service. Year-to-year records are maintained, providing
documentation of the companies' efforts to mitigate risk, and providing insight
into service life.
When there is more to something than meets the eye, ultrasonic testing can see
below the surface
- You've had something welded. On the surface, the weld looks good--but did it penetrate completely?
- Your piece is such that a crack or defect will only show through
to the surface AFTER a catastrophic failure.
- You have a cast piece that may have a defect, such as a sand
pocket, below the surface in a critical area.
Whatever your needs, we have the equipment and personnel available to meet your ultrasonic testing needs
