Pipeline Integrity Inspection to API 570
Pipeline Integrity Inspection is a specialist NDT service carried out by InCon across the UK.
API 570 covers the inspection, rating, repair, and alteration procedures for metallic and FRP piping systems and their associated pressure relieving devices that have been in-service.
The intent of this code is to specify the in-service inspection and condition-monitoring program that is needed to determine the integrity of piping. That program should provide reasonably accurate and timely assessments to determine if any changes in the condition of piping could possibly compromise continued safe operation.
API 570 was developed for the petroleum refining and chemical process industries but may be used, where practical, for any piping system. It is intended for use by organisations that maintain or have access to an authorised inspection agency, a repair organisation, and technically qualified piping engineers, inspectors, and examiners.
Pipeline Drawing Service
In addition, InCon now offers a pipeline drawing service in which our specialist technicians walk, map and provide CAD drawings of pipeline networks. InCon has developed this new high-quality service to provide clients with complete, thorough and accurate pipeline integrity inspection.
