Mechanical Integrity

In a society that focuses on safety and reliability the integrity of your facility’s process equipment is an integral part of plant operations and in order to be an effective competitor in today’s global markets dependability is a key component.

While implementing the American Petroleum Institute’s specifications, we excel in assisting you in developing your Mechanical Integrity program from the bottom up, or evaluating your facility’s Storage Tanks, Pressure Vessels and Piping Systems in accordance with your already established strategy.

Our API Inspectors, qualified to the American Petroleum Institute’s, inspection programs have the background and experience to provide detailed Mechanical Integrity assessments of your Storage Tanks, Pressure Vessels and Piping Systems in accordance with API procedures and plant specifications. With support from Non-Destructive Testing applications where needed, our API inspectors will collect data specific to the individual equipment, perform evaluations based on that data and furnish a detailed assessment of the condition providing recommendations for corrective action and/or maintenance activities.

Key Applications:
  • Minimum allowable thickness and remaining life determination
  • Shell and Floor settlement evaluation
  • Corrosion monitoring
  • Tank Bottom Evaluation – Using Magnetic Flux Leakage, (MFL) technology and/or B-Scan technology we can assess the presence of under floor corrosion and evaluate the extent and severity without the need for removing floor coupons
  • Corrosion under Insulation, (CUI)
