Rope Access Inspection

Rope access inspection is typically used as an alternative to traditional access solutions such as scaffolding, MEWPs, etc. In industry, rope access NDT is invaluable in situations where traditional access solutions are not viable and widely deployed on structure, such as for bland repairs on wind turbines or inspections on oil and gas assets.

RCL employs rope access skilled NDT-technicians to work closely with our clients to reach suitable, safe and effective access solutions.

RCL provides rope access NDT to our clients with a safe, cost-effective service, completing projects to the highest of standards.

Welding Inspection

Weld inspections are conducted for several reasons, the most common of which is to determine whether the weld is of suitable quality for its intended application. Codes and standards developed specifically for a variety of welding fabrication applications are used during welding inspections to dictate what levels of weld discontinuities are acceptable.

By utilizing our certified welding inspectors, RCL performs welding inspection before, during and after welding according to applicable requirements and specifications. Our experience from a variety of sectors have provided us with knowledge that is appraised by our clients.

Coating Inspection

RCL supplies third-party inspectors, or QA/QC inspectors, who work directly for the asset owner, or general contractor, and corroborates the findings and measurements of the coating application company. This position acts as a vital check to ensure that no corners are cut and that all aspects of the project are followed to specifications. Not only should this help extend the life of the asset, but it should also help prevent expensive and potentially dangerous consequences from a premature coating’s failure.

For more than a decade we have worked with a variety of surface treatment, coating and insulation systems on pipelines, on- and offshore structures, and piping. We possess in-house resources and equipment available to take on a large variety of testing and inspection works. From developing tailored inspection and test plans (ITP/TIP) to inspection execution, our expertise contributes to ensuring your suppliers’ compliance with standards and specifications.

Coating inspection methods:

  • Visual assessment
  • Surface assessment (ASME, ANSI, ISO, SSPC, NACE, NORSOK)
  • Surface profile (Comparator, testex, digital)
  • Surface contamination (dust, chloride, nitrate, sulphate)
  • Climatic conditions
  • Coating thickness measurements (Wet film, dry film)
  • Adhesion testing (Pull-off, cross-hatch)
  • Holiday detection (Wet, dry)
  • Additional site or client specific technical requirements as agreed

Positive Material Identification PMI

Ensure Your Material Conforms to the Proper Specifications

Positive material identification (PMI) is an essential non-destructive testing (NDT) method utilized to verify that supplied materials conform to the proper standards and specifications. As a result, assurance can be gained that the chemical makeup of the metallic parts has the correct percentage of key elements.

RCL offers PMI testing services through experienced, trained personnel who can assure quality of service. The material scan and testing services can be performed on-site before the pieces go into the production process. PMI can be utilized on a variety of part sizes – from large complex parts to things as small as the weld fill material on the pieces.
