More about our Specialist Inspection services
Storage Tank Integrity Inspection
Storage tanks play a critical role in various industries, from storing hazardous chemicals to holding valuable liquids. Ensuring their integrity is paramount to preventing potential failures that could lead to catastrophic consequences.
Regular Storage Tank Integrity Inspections offered by BES Group are essential to safeguard your assets and the environment. Our team of skilled inspectors utilise advanced NDT techniques, including ultrasonic, radiography, and visual inspection, to thoroughly assess the structural integrity, material properties, and serviceability of your tanks.
By identifying any defects or deviations from the design specifications, BES Group can help you take preventive measures and extend the service life of your tanks, saving you money and ensuring the safety of your team and the environment.Schedule a consultation today
GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) Tank Inspection
GRP and thermoplastic tanks are increasingly favoured for their strength, corrosion resistance, and low maintenance requirements. These tanks are often considered as “fit and forget” items, meaning they are expected to last for a long time based solely on the manufacturer’s recommendations for service life.
However, these tanks are susceptible to degradation due to various factors, including:
Temperature fluctuations: Exposure to extreme temperatures can cause material fatigue and cracking.
Chemical exposure: Contact with harsh chemicals can lead to corrosion and erosion.
Mechanical stresses: Overloading or improper handling can damage the tank structure.
Operating conditions: Improper maintenance and operation can accelerate deterioration.
Ignoring these factors can lead to premature tank failure, resulting in:
Costly repairs: Replacing or repairing faulty tanks can be expensive.
Hazardous spills: Leaking tanks can release hazardous substances into the environment.
Environmental damage: Contamination of soil, water, or air can have severe environmental consequences.
Prolonged downtime: Failures can disrupt operations and cause significant financial losses.
By identifying any defects or deviations from the design specifications, BES Group can help customers take corrective actions and extend the service life of their tanks, saving money and ensuring safety for your team and the environment.Schedule a consultation today
Pressure Vessel Inspection
Pressure vessels are essential components in various industries, where they store and process fluids under high pressure. Ensuring their integrity is crucial for safe and efficient operations.
BES Group’s comprehensive and effective Pressure Vessel Inspections, coupled with advanced NDT methods, provide a thorough assessment of the pressure vessel’s structural integrity, material condition, and operational parameters. This ensures that your pressure vessels meet the highest standards of safety and compliance.
Regular pressure vessel inspections help you:
Prevent catastrophic failures: Early detection of defects can prevent sudden explosions or leaks.
Extend the service life of your vessels: Proactive maintenance ensures that your vessels operate safely and efficiently for longer.
Maintain regulatory compliance: Adhering to safety regulations protects your business and your assets.
For items that fall under the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR), it is mandatory to have any inspections carried out alongside a Written Scheme of Examination.
At BES Group, we’re pleased to provide complete compliance for your critical pressure vessels. Our fully qualified API 510 inspectors have years of experience in performing thorough vessel examinations alongside NDT testing. We’re also impartial, which means we can provide you with a Written Scheme of Examination to ensure the highest standards of safety and compliance.Schedule a consultation today
Process Piping Integrity Inspections
Piping systems serve as the backbone of various industries, transporting fluids, gases, and hazardous substances across production processes. Ensuring the integrity of these intricate networks is paramount to preventing potential failures that could have catastrophic consequences.
BES Group’s comprehensive Process Piping Integrity Inspections provide a robust defence against leaks, corrosion, and other hazards, safeguarding your assets, personnel, and the environment. Our team of skilled inspectors utilise advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) methods, including ultrasonic, radiography, and visual inspection to meticulously assess the condition of your piping systems.
Our thorough inspections delve into the depths of your piping systems, uncovering any defects or deviations from the design specifications. This includes:
Leaks: Early detection of leaks prevents fluid loss, environmental contamination, and potential explosions.
Corrosion: Identifying corrosion pits and cracks allows for prompt repair and prevents structural failure.
Material Degradation: Monitoring the condition of piping materials ensures that they can withstand the pressures and fluids they handle.
Geometric Defects: Detecting weld imperfections, ovality, and other geometric issues ensures the integrity of the pipeline.
Pressure-Relieving Devices: Regularly inspecting pressure-relieving devices ensures their proper functioning to protect the system and personnel in case of emergencies.
By proactively identifying and addressing these issues, we help you:
Prevent Catastrophic Failures: Early detection and rectification of defects minimise the risk of sudden leaks, explosions, or other disruptions.
Extend Service Life: Proactive maintenance and repair extend the lifespan of your piping systems, reducing costly replacements.
Maintain Operational Efficiency: Uninterrupted fluid flow ensures that your production processes operate smoothly and efficiently.
Reduce Maintenance Costs: Early detection of defects minimises the extent of damage and associated repair costs.
We can provide a complete end-to-end solution, which means we can also offer a pipeline drawing service, in which our expert technicians walk, map, and provide CAD drawings of your pipeline networks.Schedule a consultation today
