West Wareham, MA 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.

API 1169

API 1169

The API 1169 is a recommended practice that focuses on the basic requirements needed to do inspection on new onshore pipelines in a safe manor. Broken in to four sections. Inspector responsibilities; making sure the project moves forward in a safe and efficient manor. Inspector in responsible for planning, monitoring, evaluating, and root cause analysis. Personal and General Pipeline Safety; Making sure the requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910 and 29 CFR 1926 are met. Environmental and pollution control; Inspectors must know the local, state, and federal permits for Environmental and Pollution control. Basic understanding of the impacts that pipelines have on of water, land and air. General Pipeline Construction; Observing all phases of construction and understanding the difference between compliance and requirements in term on general pipeline construction.

West Wareham, MA 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.

Traditional Film, Computed Radiography and Digital radiography in West Wareham, MA

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.

ASME B31.1 in West Wareham, MA

Created in the 1930s as a standard code for power piping. ASME B31.1 is a code that provides minimum requirements for safety and guidance for the design of new piping and the repair, modifications and replacement of existing piping. Covering fuel gas and oil systems as well as central and district heating, water and steam systems. ASME B31.1 covers water and steam piping found in all power generation plants throughout the United States. Integrity Testlabs can provided technicians on your next project or outage that have vast experience and knowledge of ASME B31.1 acceptance criteria.

West Wareham, MA Visual Testing (VT)

Probably the most important inspection technique and one we are gifted with is visual testing with our eyes. This is a very common, low cost, quick and effective way to inspect welding, equipment, and coatings. Visual testing is the most important tool for a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI), It’s a certification you can acquire through ASNT or with your company by ASNT TC 1A. Defects commonly found using visual inspection is excessive reinforcement, underfill, undercut, porosity, cold lap. If able to access the inside or root of the weld its possible to see lack of fusion, or incomplete penetration.
