ASME Sec VIII; ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC)
Section VIII of ASME is the code that covers the design, manufacturing, inspection and testing of pressure vessels that exceed 15 psig. This code book provides specific requirements on welding and forging, mandatory and nonmandatory appendices detailing supplementary design criteria. Manufacturing companies must be certified by AMSE. Integrity Testlabs can provide all Non-destructive need to meet or exceed the requirements of ASME Sec VIII ASTM; American Society Testing and Materials.
API 510 Inspector in Salisbury, NY
This is an individual certification that is achieved through API testing program that test individuals on their knowledge of inspections, maintenance, repairs and alteration of pressure vessels. This certificate is recognized worldwide. Most individuals have many years of inspection experience of the internals of a pressure vessel, performing Ultrasonic Thickness readings, Visual Inspections and other various NDT methods. Having an understanding of how the operations of the facility work also helps you understand where failures might occur in the different variety of vessels. Integrity Testlabs has API 510 in house and contractors that can help your company keep up with planned and unplanned maintenance and help start or maintain corrosion programs.
Certified Welding Inspector (CWT) in Salisbury, NY
Many jobsites ranging from pipelines, fabrication shops, bridges and structural steel fabricators need or require a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) to help run their quality program, certify welders, perform visual inspections on fit-ups, root passes and final inspections of completed welds. CWIs come from different backgrounds, some have welding experience only, Some have inspection experience only and some have an engineering degree. All CWIs need to know how to interpret the welding procedure, welding qualification, acceptance criteria for defects, welding machines, and consumables. Integrity Testlabs can provide a CWI for your long- or short-term projects.
Traditional Film, Computed Radiography and Digital radiography in Salisbury, NY
Integrity Testlabs currently utilizes traditional film and computed radiography (CR) film. Traditional film is still loaded under safe lights and developed using a 5-step process in the back our darkrooms. Once dry, the filmed in viewed under a high intensity viewer looking for defects. Traditional film comes in several different sizes and leaves the client with a physical piece of film to view for years to come. Computer Radiography or CR uses plates that are phosphor. When these plates are exposed to radiation, the plates emit a blue light that is interpreted by the film processor and then transmitted into an image and viewed on the computer screen. This process is efficient and plates can be used multiple times, no chemicals are needed to process the film. Digital radiography is newer to the industrial and keeps gaining popularity each year. Limited in film size and mobility. The biggest advantage is shorter x-ray times, less radiation, wire or wireless capabilities, and instant images that are displayed on the computer screen.
Salisbury, NY Ultrasonics
Using high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements. Ultrasonic inspection can be used for flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization. The sound energy is introduced and propagates through the material in the form of waves. When there is a discontinuity or crack in the wave path, part of the energy will be reflected. back from the flaw surface. The reflected wave signal is transformed into an electrical signal by the transducer and is displayed on a screen. Advanced Ultrasonics takes many on the job hours and classroom training to become a skilled technician in Ultrasonics. Integrity Testlabs has technicians to cover all your Ultrasonic (UT) needs.
Salisbury, NY Radiation Safety Officer (RSO)
Any Company providing Radiography services will need a Radiation Safety Officer (RSO). The RSO will oversee all codes and regulations regarding the storage and use of category 2 material. The RSO will oversee all daily activities by the crews. Making sure they are performing the work safely and using all safety devices. Ir-192 is what Integrity Testlabs uses the most to perform radiography. We use QSA Global as our service provider of source and equipment. The D/S-880 has been a trusted workhorse for ITL techs out in the field. ITL is still using source projectors that are over 20 years old.
