  • Non-destructive leak testing can improve pipeline sustainability 2

Non-destructive leak testing can improve pipeline sustainability

A leaking pipeline can cause an inordinate amount of legal, safety and environmental risks, which is why oil and gas companies delegate a large percentage of their time and resources toward detecting and preventing leaks. While operators look to put more miles of pipelines into production, some face regulatory hurdles in certain regions, which forces [...]

  • NDT benefits

6 benefits of Non-destructive testing

Nondestructive testing (NDT) is the process of inspecting, testing, or evaluating materials, components or assemblies for discontinuities, or differences in characteristics without destroying the serviceability of the part or system. In other words, when the inspection or test is completed the part can still be used.

  • NDT-for-downstream-oil-and-gas[1]

NDT for downstream oil and gas

Keeping downtime to a minimum is vital to downstream oil and gas operations. The oil and gas industry relies on nondestructive testing techniques to determine the lifecycle of production assets and minimizing downtime. Such techniques also play a key role in plant safety. Inspectioneering Journal wrote that it is important for pipeline and refinery owners to [...]

  • Storage facilities can be protected against corrosion.

Corrosion management in storage facilities

Corrosion control and management is a critical component to the proper operation and maintenance of a number of facilities and structures in the energy industry. Due to the harsh nature of the chemicals, contaminants and corrosive elements in contact with metal tanks, pipelines, terminals, plants and platforms, the chance of degradation is higher when there [...]

  • Non-destructive testing techniques are vital for determining the integrity of mechanical systems and components.

NDT methods in nuclear power plants

In a previous post, we discussed how non-destructive testing methods play a vital role in assessing the integrity of concrete structures. NDT methods help identify potential weaknesses or structural deficiencies early so power generation companies can address them before excessive downtime or loss of power generation capabilities occur. Such methods ensure the safety of the power [...]
