It is recommended to have inspection during the commissioning and operational phases. Inspection is necessary to check if the flange connections meet the requirements according to the Joint Assembly Records.
The performance of a pressurized, gasketed, bolted flanged joint, either standard or code designed, is measured in terms of its ability to remain leak free through all anticipated plant operations. When a leak occurs, whether minor or major, it is prudent and beneficial to perform a rigorous investigation to uncover the cause and understand why.
The condition of the flange joints of must be recorded/captured continuously using tests and inspection. It is essential to have well educated professionals to be able to those tests and inspection responsibly. The aim is to recognizing problems and obstacles in time.
We can carry out inspection, but we also help asset owners and contractors to have inspection carried out by their own employees.
