Dye penetrant testing procedures include, and comply with current BSEN ISO and ASME codes. Our operators are approved to carry out operations both on site and in our laboratory under the UKAS accreditation scheme.Read More
We are able to carry out Hardness Testing on and offsite, using Vickers and Rockwell evaluation process.Read More
Holiday Detection is the ability to determine any imperfections and breaks in continuity of protective coating, i.e. epoxy, painted and rubber applications in the gas and petrochemical industry.
We carry out testing to new work and can be involved in addition with preventative maintenance, part of our operations deal with pipeline construction, and the inspection of coatings.
We carry out MPI on site and also in our laboratory, procedures exist for aerospace, general engineering, structural, and petro-chemical specifications, to BSEN ISO, ASME/ASTM and BGAS specifications.Read More
Material Chemical Verification PMI
As a part of our clients quality control system, we are able to confirm with a very fast analysis that materials are “as required”, this can be carried out on site as well as in our controlled laboratory. We can confirm element numbers and even identify trade names, in alloys and non-ferrous material.Read More
Material Physical Condition
We verify material analysis by both
Chemical and physical means.Read More
Also “in house” we are able to carry out Radiography, MPI, Dye Penetrant Testing, Chemical Analysis, and Ultrasonic Testing. We can examine welds, castings, and composites, and forgings.
Phased Array – Advanced Ultrasonic Testing
Recent advances in data analysis have meant that we can now operate ultrasonic probes with multiple crystals all operating simultaneously. This is demonstrated here. Our site testing equipment either manual or automatic has meant that we are able in a lot of cases to replace X radiography with phased array examination, giving advantages in safety and speed.Read More
We operate both on and off site with manual ultrasonic examination and offer the following services to the Petrochemical, Engineering and Construction Industry offering PCN approved level II and level III operators.
Our weld monitoring equipment monitors up to 5 channels during operations, Amperage, Voltage, Wire feed speed, travel speed and Gas flow. These are recorded to ensure exact measurements are available for field welding.
Services offered to Petrochemical, Engineering and Construction Industry.
For further information see weld procedure qualifications.
We are able to offer this service offsite as well as onsite; our equipment inventory includes X Ray Crawler units, operating from 6” to 60” Diameter and Kv Ranges from 120Kv to 300Kv, panoramic units, and directional CP x-ray heads.
Gamma Radiography utilising Iridium 192 and selenium 75 isotopes.
Our two X-ray bays in Sittingbourne Laboratory are manned seven days a week and operate under UKAS accreditation.
We also have market leading computed radiography equipment at our disposal to use in conjunction with our X-radiography kit, to suit all your necessary requirements. This is quicker and more environmentally friendly than the ‘wet film technique associated with conventional radiography. Depending on which type of inspection you opt for we will ensure full compliance with the latest recognised specifications across a large variety of industry and sectors.Read More
