Cressona, PA Industrial Radiography

Integrity Testlabs performs industrial radiography (RT) every day. We have crews working or available 24/7/365 days a year to perform RT in DE, PA, NJ, NY, and MD. We have the capability to perform x-rays at your jobsite or in house at our Delaware office. We use Ir-192 gamma radiation in Delta 880 projectors. We have SNT-TC-1A qualified level II radiographers to interpret results for weld quality and thinning on pipe walls. Integrity Testlabs also has a Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) on staff to make sure all safety requirements are followed and we have a Level III on staff to interpret results, provided training and keep procedures updated or create new ones.

ASNT; American Society for Nondestructive testing

A nonprofit organization which is governed by a board of directors. ASNT publishes and maintains SNT-TC-1A, Standards, Codes of practice, ANSI/ASNT CP-189 and CP-105. They also cover all aspects of qualification and certification of NDT personnel. Integrity Testlabs has a ANST Level III on staff that certifies our Level II and Level I employees so they meet the SNT-TC-1A requirements.

Turnaround or Outage Support

Turnaround or Outage Support

Every year in the Energy and Refinery industry have their planned and or unplanned outages. Typically planned for the spring or fall. The plant will shut down typically for a week to 4 weeks for maintenance. These outages require a number of skilled workers to accomplish the planned work. Typically working around the clock to accomplish this work. These tasks can include replacing equipment, valves, pumps, and piping. They may also overhaul the equipment or overlay the piping or shells to help with corrosion. Integrity Testlabs has the staff to support the needs of the mechanical contractors or the owner operators. We can provide RT, UT, MT, PT and QC/QA support.

C-scan, Shearwave and Phased Array

C-scan, Shearwave and Phased Array

Automated Corrosion Mapping uses C-scan to do corrosion maps to find flaws on the shells of equipment and piping. AUT can produce very detailed reports for clients to visually see where the corrosion is happening. Shearwave uses high frequency sound waves to identify flaws in the material. Sensitive to surface and subsurface discontinuities it’s a superior inspection tool wen compared to other NDT processes. Phased Array is known for its capabilities to send multiple singles into material to produce highly repeatable results and detailed and accurate cross sections of components. This makes Phased Array a needed to tool to inspect complex shaped parts.
