Vessel, Tube Inspection

Inspection of vessels and tubing that are part of industrial processes is a core component of mechanical programs.

Inspections performed on-line and at operating temperature minimize downtime and permit continued revenue operation.

C-Scan reporting provides cross sectional views of vessel or tube wall conditions that can be compared against prior test results to establish wear trends and remaining life.

Acuren personnel are trained in a variety of inspection methods deployed via manual, rope access, and remote crawler systems. We can perform inspection on-line and at operating temperature to minimize downtime and permit continued revenue operation.


Acuren RoleMaintains equipment and personnel capable of executing a wide variety of vessel and tube inspection programs.

Works in all industrial environments: petrochemical refinery, pulp & paper, oil & gas pipeline, chemical
Methods UsedAUT C-Scan

The strip welds require radiography (API RP 5C7) and possibly magnetic particle inspection (Quality Tubing, 1995) to ensure elimination of all flaw types. Figure 1 shows a typical digital radiograph of the bias weld. Radiographic inspection is performed to ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section V, Article 22 (ASME, 1992) or, for pipeline product, a requirement somewhat tighter than API 1104 using a No. 10 penetrameter with a 2T hole. Magnetic particle inspection is performed with a yoke to API RP 5A5.
