One of ATS’ most requested services is pipe testing and inspections. With such a variety of tests that can be performed on pipes, we offer numerous applications including nondestructive testing, mechanical testing, environmental testing, failure analysis and weld certification. Since our founding in 1967, we have earned an excellent reputation nationally and internationally with clientele from multiple industries.
Nondestructive Testing (NDT)
NDT inspections are commonly requested by industries whose pipes and pipelines are in service. These evaluations give owners/operators peace of mind when their components and systems are determined to be safe and structurally sound for continued use. Alternatively, when NDT inspections reveal safety hazards due to assets being compromised by fatigue, corrosion, use of improper materials, poor manufacturing processes, and/or weldment issues, precautions can be taken to avoid catastrophic failures.
Mechanical and Environmental Testing
Mechanical testing on pipes will help you determine mechanical properties such as strength and ductility as well as material behavior when exposed to external forces, pressures, and environmental conditions. Being aware of your systems’ limitations will provide safety, dependable equipment, and avoid unexpected down time.
Environmental Testing Services:
Poor welding techniques can present risks and vulnerabilities in pipes. Many industries require welds to be inspected to ensure safety and reliability for industrial piping systems. Our experienced CWI and NDT Experts travel nationwide to perform weld inspections in accordance to applicable industry standards.
ATS offers in-depth assessments to assist in identifying the root cause of a wide variety of pipe failures. These forensic and failure analyses can be performed on steel, PVC, copper, ABS, CPVC, HDPE, polyethylene, cast iron and kitec pipes.
