  • Rope Access insulation work on piping

    PIPING STATISTICS

    • Acuren has found 25% of all of the failures we see are result of process piping failures
    • The average refining facility has 2-10 process piping failures annually
    • An effective piping program will reduce your likelihood and incidence of piping failures

NDE Methods For Piping Inspection

Acuren knows where to look for the relevant damage mechanisms utilizing the latest technologies:

  • Moisture Detection Imaging (MDI) – Compton Backscatter
  • Radiographic methods: Real Time Radiography (RTR), Computed Radiography (CR), Digital Radiography (DR), traditional
  • Advanced Ultrasonic Inspections (PAUT, TOFD, AUT, Guided Wave (GUL), flange scanning)
  • Infrared Thermography (IR)
  • Laser Scanning and mapping
  • Ultrasonic Thickness (UT) measurements
  • Pulsed Eddy Current (PEC)
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
  • HawkEye logo

  • HawkEye External Corrosion Screening Tool
    • Indirect inspections of facility piping (CIPS, ACVG, DCVG, ACCA)
    • Locate areas with coating anomalies and deficient CP
  • Other traditional NDE methods

Engineering

  • Perform failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Develop integrity operating windows (IOW’s)
  • Create and implement Risk Based Inspection (RBI) programs
  • Perform equipment failure analysis
  • Fitness for service assessments (API 579)
  • Piping Stress and finite elemental analysis (FEA)
