Ensuring Quality: The Importance of 100% Quality Control Checks for Inspection Plugs in Preventing Corrosion

In the realm of industrial maintenance and safety, there exist critical components that often go unnoticed but play a pivotal role in ensuring the integrity of infrastructure. One such component is the inspection plug, a seemingly small element that holds significant importance, particularly in the prevention of corrosion under insulation (CUI) in insulated piping systems and vessels.

Maintaining Consistency With Inspection Point Labels With High Personnel Turnover In The Industry

Ultrasonic thickness inspections are critical in ensuring the safety and reliability of industrial equipment, pipelines, and structures. These inspections are performed by certified inspectors, even some qualified to the recent ISQ from ASNT, UTT for the oil and gas sector. However, these days acquisitions, contract changes, and high turnover rates amongst inspectors, can create real challenges in maintaining consistency in inspection procedures and results. This is where inspection point labels can alleviate some problems with consistency in inspection.

PREVENTING CORROSION UNDER INSULATION (CUI) IN INSULATED PIPING AND VESSEL SYSTEMS: THE ROLE OF INSPECTION PLUGS
Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) is a prevalent issue in industrial settings, leading to equipment failures, safety concerns, and substantial maintenance costs. One of the key challenges in addressing CUI is the difficulty in inspecting and monitoring the condition of insulated piping and vessel systems.

THE CRUCIAL ROLE OF CONSISTENT INSPECTION POINT LOCATIONS IN ULTRASONIC THICKNESS TESTING FOR EQUIPMENT INTEGRITY

The field of Nondestructive Testing (NDT) plays a critical role in ensuring the structural integrity and fitness for service of various industrial equipment. Among the various NDT methods, Ultrasonic Thickness Testing (UTT) is a widely used technique for assessing the thickness of materials in equipment such as pipelines, pressure vessels, and storage tanks. In this blog post, we will emphasize the importance of consistent inspection point locations or UT thickness locations in the overall fitness for service or integrity analysis of equipment. We'll explore the various applications of UTT and discuss factors that can affect the accuracy and precision of measurements, including the role of NDT Seals' inspection point labels and the ISQ for UTT from ASNT.

HIGH TEMP APPLICATION? CHOOSE ISO OVER RED

HIGH TEMP APPLICATION? CHOOSE ISO OVER RED
In high-temperature applications, the importance of quality cannot be emphasized enough. Every component of the system must be meticulously designed and be manufactured to withstand extreme heat, ensuring safe and reliable operation. While the color red might be visually appealing and often associated with heat resistance, it is essential to understand that the true measure of a reliable inspection plug lies in its quality rather than its appearance. This article highlights the significance of quality in inspection plugs for high-temperature applications, emphasizing the need for ISO certification to ensure reliability and prevent catastrophic failures.

DON’T INTRODUCE VULNERABILITIES INTO YOUR INSULATED PIPING SYSTEMS

DON’T INTRODUCE VULNERABILITIES INTO YOUR INSULATED PIPING SYSTEMS
It is estimated that 40 to 60 percent of pipe maintenance costs are due to corrosion under insulation (CUI). In order for corrosion to occur you need moisture, metal and an electron acceptor, such as oxygen. Prevention is often focused on the removal of one of these key ingredients. While, using a metal that is resistant to corrosion, such as a stainless steel, is an option, it can end up being very costly and lead to its own set of deterioration issues. As such, owners will often turn towards eliminating or minimizing either the moisture or the oxygen from the equation.
