Our highly specialized, NACE/SSPC/FROSIO certified auditors are capable of determining the condition of your existing equipment, as well as monitoring the production of new equipment, such as OCTG (casing and tubing) and line pipe, drill pipe, drill collar, sucker rod, stainless steel pipe. During inspections, every inch of your equipment is scrutinized using the latest techniques to expose corrosion, fatiguing, substandard welds, wall-thinning, and cracks. All inspection criteria is designed to ensure compliance with API, ASTM standards (such as API SPEC 5CT, API SPEC 5B and API SPEC 5L) or your own specific requirements.
Whether on- or offshore, rigs are the crux of Oil and Gas exploration and production. These often massive structures must be built, maintained, and evaluated using the highest quality standards in order to remain operational throughout their expected useful life. Depending on the size, location, and specific purpose of each rig; complex systems of pumps, degassers, centrifuges, and elevators must all work in unison to achieve a successful wellbore.
These case-hardened steel tubes are an integral part of any petroleum extraction process, as they facilitate the pumping of drilling fluid down into the well. Because they are meant to be removed from newly drilled wells and re-used to drill additional wellbores, it is crucial that all drill pipes are regularly inspected for structural integrity.
Virtually no system on a petroleum extraction site works in isolation. Connecting the drilling fluid vessels, centrifuges, pumps, and other systems is an often extensive network of various forms of tubing. As any failure in the tubular network could lead to loss of production, environmental disasters, or damage to other key systems, no lapse in quality control efforts can be tolerated in this area.
You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.
Director of Production, Betabrand
Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or four,because the factory knows that we want that cut back and InTouch is going to find it.
Administrative Assistant, Linstol
InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.
Vice President of Purchasing, MJS Packaging
One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.
Operations and Engineering Manager, Juku Gear
From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
