  • Welding processes can introduce contaminants and metallurgical defects into a component. Applied Technical Services offers NDT welding inspection on structures, both ferrous and non-ferrous, or components to detect surface and sub-surface defects and discontinuities. In order to meet quality and safety standards, welds are commonly required to withstand load and stress conditions.

  • Hydrostatic test Ahydrostatic testis a way in whichpressure vesselssuch aspipelines,plumbing,gas cylinders,boilersand fuel tanks can be tested for strength and leaks. The test involves filling the vessel or pipe system with a liquid, usually water, which may be dyed to aid in visual leak detection, and pressurization of the vessel to the specified

  • Ensuring a topnotch weld inspection program​ Ensuring that welders follow specific procedures is a crucial step in the overall welding quality system. There are a number of reasons to inspect a weld, the most fundamental of which is to determine whether its quality is good enough for its intended application. To evaluate the quality of a weld, it is necessary to

  • Q: We are expanding our job shop and adding the capability to work with much heavier structures, including considerably thicker materials. Some of these jobs specify high-strength materials and preheating. Some of our welders claim preheating is performed to remove water from the steel. Can you expand on this? A: This is an excellent topic for discussion! Preheating and postweld stress relief are

  • While using a torch to preheat your welds may seem simple enough to suit your job, is it doing the job correctly?​ Preparing an electrical resistance preheat on a large piece of machinery. Image courtesy of KASI Technologies Inc. Preheating is an important preparatory operation for certain welding jobs. As the name implies, it is the process of raising

  • Industrial Inspection Inspection 4 Industry LLC,Provides Global Industrial Inspection Services. The services covers shop inspection, site inspection and plant inspection. The articles are about different inspection field categories such as shop inspection, site inspection, and in-service inspection requirements. The articles present you applicable codes and standards. There will also

  • The major objective of radiographic testing of castings is the disclosure of defects that adversely affect the strength of the product. Castings are a product form that often receive radiographic inspection since many of the defects produced by the casting process are volumetric in nature, and are thus relatively easy to detect with this method. These discontinuities of course, are related to casting

  • Hydrostatic testing of the pipeline including riser should follow the below procedures: The pressure should be raised to the test pressure and allowed to stabilize then held for 15 minutes. The rate of pressure increase should not exceed 100 kPa (15 psi) per minute during all operations. The pressure should be lowered to approximately 25 percent of test pressure, allowed to stabilize then

  • At the end of construction, and following commissioning tasks such as water flushing, water should always be present in petroleum processing equipment. Whenever this water may subsequently lead to an operational problem, or if equipment may be damaged, it is necessary to perform a drying-out operation. There are several different reasons for drying-out depending upon the type of equipment and

  • Post-weld heat treatment or PWHT is a controlled process that involves reheating the metal below its lower critical transformation temperature, following a welding process. The material is then held at the elevated temperature for a predetermined period of time to alleviate residual stresses, increase the strength, increase or decrease the hardness, and reduce the risk of cracking by microstructural

  • In addition to producing high quality radiographs, theradiographer must also be skilled inradiographic interpretation .Interpretation of radiographs takes place in three basic steps: (1) detection, (2)interpretation , and (3)evaluation . All of these steps make use of the radiographer'svisual

  • PIPING HYDROSTATIC TESTING (OVERVIEW) Pressure source and test gauge should be upstream of check valve. If pressure source is downstream, check valve should have flapper removed or jacked?up. (Pressure must be released downstream of check valve after test completion.) Ensure that test blinds installed are the Correct thickness. Ensure that all items such as control valves, relief valves,

  • Radiographic Testing (RT)is anondestructive examination (NDE)technique that involves the use of either x-rays or gamma rays to view the internal structure of a component. In the petrochemical industry, RT is often used to inspect machinery, such aspressure vesselsand valves, to detect for flaws. RT is also used to inspect weld repairs. Compared to other NDE techniques,

  • Visual Inspection (VT) Visual inspection is a non-destructive testing (NDT)weld quality testing processwhere a weld is examined with the eye to determine surface discontinuities. It is the most common method of weld quality testing. Advantages of nondestructive weld quality testing: Inexpensive (usually only labor expense) Low cost equipment No power requirement Quick

  • APRIL 7, 2017Featured Stories Transmission pipeline welding often requires preheating of the weld zone to ensure that the joint achieves its required strength and hardness. Proper preheating also helps minimize the risk of delayed hydrogen-induced cracking, which is a significant concern that impacts weld quality and integrity in transmission pipelines. There are several heating methods
