Shrub Oak, NY API 1104

Shrub Oak, NY API 1104

The American Petroleum Institute (API) is one of the oldest and most successful programs that started over 100 years ago. Maintaining over 500 standards in the oil and gas field. One of those standards that Integrity Testlabs has experience in is API 1104. This specification covers Welding Procedure specifications to NonDestructive Testing (NDT) acceptance criteria for the welding of pipelines and related facilities. Integrity Testlabs has the capability and knowledge to inspect all welds requiring NonDestructive Testing Services. We can provide Certified Welding Inspection (CWI), Radiography (RT), Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Magnetic Particle Testing (MT), and Penetrant Testing (PT) needs.

Shrub Oak, NY 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.

Shrub Oak, 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.

Shrub Oak, NY Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

If you’re looking for a very mobile, reliable and cost-effective method at finding surface and subsurface discontinuities. MT testing is the way to go on your ferrous material. When the magnetic field is disrupted by a break in the north and south poles the fine iron particles are attracted to the break in the magnetic field. Dry or wet inspections can be very useful with dry being the advantage when parts are to hot to use the wet method. ITL has many certified MT technicians to perform inspections on your welds or parts.

Traditional Film, Computed Radiography and Digital radiography in Shrub Oak, 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.
