Inspections of Pressure Vessels and Aboveground Storage Tanks

All inspections are performed and testing supervised by a Professional Engineer certified by the American Petroleum Institute for Pressure Vessel and Storage Tank Inspection.  Individual certifications are held in the categories of IAM and IAF Company certification issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.  Technicians certified to American Society for Non-destructive Testing (ASNT) Standards perform all NDT.  Depending upon the construction of pressure vessel or tank, the type of inspection required and the jurisdictional requirements for the installation, an inspection will consist of a select combination of the following tests:

  • Visual Inspection (VT)

  • Ultrasonic Thickness Survey (UT)

  • Magnetic Flux Exclusion Survey (MFE)

  • Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

  • Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT)

  • Vacuum Box Testing

  • Settlement Survey

  • Tightness Test

  • Acoustic Emission Test (AE)


The results of the inspection are reviewed and analyzed by a Professional Engineer, who will prepare a detailed report containing a recommended repair plan devised for any deficient conditions found.  The repair plan will evaluate and compare the impact of repairs versus estimated remaining service life and future inspection requirements.
