Over the past few years, there have been several coal silo failures in power plants in the US and abroad. These failures have dropped as much as 800 tons of coal on the floor below them. To date no injuries have occurred but significant equipment damage has resulted.
Acuren Helps Food Industry Client Prevent Pipe Leaks
Acuren’s Ammonia System Inspection group helped a food industry giant avoid a possible shutdown. Acuren’s experts were tasked with inspecting the pipes and vessels involved in a 75,000 pound ammonia system in Arkansas.
There are two 30 inch diameter ¼” wall thickness steel water mains, which run along the underside of the bridge over a river way, that provide major water distribution to the community. Acuren’s engineering and rope access crew provided a safe, economical, and timely repair solution to get the lines back into operating condition.
High Temperature Hydrogen Attack (HTHA) is a condition that can occur in process equipment exposed to hydrogen at elevated temperatures and pressures over time. Acuren has an in depth approach to address this wide spread industry issue with more HTHA specialists than any other NDE provider.

Vast Network To Complete Extensive Project On Time and Budget
TEI Analytical Services, Acuren’s sister company, inspected an interstate natural gas transmission pipeline of more than 250 miles of 36” diameter pipe to support pipeline transportation infrastructure needs in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada. Discover how we delivered on time and on budget.
Our Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), commonly referred to as “drones”, is comprised of pilots and system operators with extensive experience, deploys equipment designed from industry leaders, and utilizes software that will accelerate inspection analysis, yielding results of unparalleled quality and value.
Flare Stack – Extending Operating Life of Critical Legacy Asset
This oil and gas customer had a 60 year old flare stack with cracking and corrosion that was approaching its end of life. Due to the cracking and corrosion thinning, there was considerable potential for failure for the flare tip and stack pipe. The cost for flare stack replacement was significant and Acuren offered a solution for life extension rather than stack replacement.
Moisture Detection Imaging: Acuren’s Latest Advancement in fight Against CUI
Refineries spend an average of $3M per year on corrosion programs, 90% of which is spent on scaffold and insulation removal. Currently insulation is removed to inspect for CUI, or some non-intrusive NDE such as visual inspection, CR, PEC, LRUT, is performed in the search for CUI indicators. CUI detection technologies are currently evolving, however none of them are capable of meeting all of the challenges until now. Acuren’s Moisture Detection Imagery (MDI) tool is the only CUI tool that will identify if moisture is, or is not, present without having to remove insulation all while providing visual confirmation in real time.
Acuren’s digital radiography scanning program improves productivity.
See instant results with Acuren’s digital radiography scanning services (also known as “real time radiography,” or RTR). View digital images taken in the field in real time at our AcuView technology centers. RTR saves time and costs by eliminating the need for reshoots, extensive developing and processing time, and film storage. Advantages over film radiography include reduced exposure strength, significantly smaller exclusion zones, faster shot speeds, elimination of film and chemicals, and digital files that can be delivered via email. Real time radiography is one of many Advanced NDE/NDT services Acuren offers.

Rope Access & Integrated Services Overview
Richarson Oilseed is one of Canada’s oldest and largest fully-integrated crushing, refining, processing and packaging operations. In the absence of timely manufacturer support for a critical equipment issue, the full time onsite Acuren Condition Monitoring Specialist was able to diagnose and provide a detailed correction path on a defective trunion bearing.
"Acuren’s early detection of the trunnion bearing fault was another win for us. It had allowed us to properly plan the bearing replacement. Not only did we avoid the cost of an emergency repair and production down time, we also avoided additional damage that would have resulted from a catastrophic failure. This is not only a success for Acuren but for all those in the vibration analysis industry given Acuren’s willingness to share their knowledge with regard to this low speed bearing failure.
