We offer a number of non-invasive non-destructive testing (NDT) services for the oil patch in Western Canada and northern Alberta. One of our niche specializations is field X-ray testing for pipelines and drilling fields near High Level.
This kind of testing allows drilling production managers to take measures against production loss caused by breakdown and long troubleshooting operations. However, High Level companies of all types, including those that work in forestry and agriculture, can benefit from our services.
An X-ray will give you a detailed image of a scanned object and will reveal any fabrication flaws, such as thinning pipe walls, pitting, pinholes, hairline cracks, sand wash damage or corrosion/erosion of any sort.
Prevent Pipeline Damage
With detailed information like this, your company can quickly attend to any trouble spots and avoid the calamity of surprise damage to your pipeline. You won’t be forced to shut down operations—losing time and money—to respond to problems. With NDT testing you’ll be able to stay ahead of breakdowns and save yourself time and money.
The Advantages of Radiography Testing in the Field
A variety of materials. We can inspect a broad variety of materials, including metals, concrete, pipewall and structural welds.
A variety of dimensions and surfaces. Inspections can be done on flat surfaces, such as walls, ceilings and floors, and on objects of unusual dimension, including pipes, storage reservoirs, cubes or any hollow or spherical object.
Assurance for welds. You can find out if your welds are going to hold up under the high pressures required for the transportation of oil-sand products and natural gas liquids.
What a Non-Destructive Testing Inspection Detects
Visual inspections are an essential part of any welding fabrication project; however, non-invasive testing can help your fabrication and maintenance crews monitor the unseen elements of welding joints.
Some of the weld integrity issues our technicians look for during a non-invasive inspection:
Our mobile unit will come to your drill site and set up quickly to do an inspection. Our mission is to preserve your production goals in every way possible. We will be able to show you in real time what the integrity issues are in your welds; alternatively, we can develop accurate and informative X-ray images that you can archive in your project files.
Our technicians are trained to work fast and effectively anywhere in Alberta. We are equipped to work in extreme environments and within the physical constraints of your worksite.
