Established in 2008, Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. is the pioneer and industry leader in end-to-end Inspection Services, Advanced and Conventional Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), and other Industrial Maintenance Services.
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. came into being in 2008 by a team of senior management specializing in technical fields as a response to the ever-growing demand for quality Inspection, Non-destructive Testing (NDT), and related industrial services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. has since striven continually to improve, and has extended its expertise to include various kinds of Inspection, NDT, and Maintenance services. Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. is based in Al-Khobar, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with offices in other locations within the Kingdom, including the cities of Jubail and Yanbu.
Products & Services
Advanced NDT Services
Exchanger Tube Inspection
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides complete Head Exchanger inspection solutions for various tube materials using the following methods:
- Eddy Current Testing (ET) – for non-ferromagnetic tubes.
- Internal Rotary Inspection Systems (IRIS) – any material, accurate wall thickness measurements.
- Magnetic Flux Leakage Testing (MFLT) – for ferromagnetic and Finfan cooler tubes.
- Remote Field Eddy Current Testing (RFT) – for ferromagnetic tubes.
- Saturated Eddy Current Testing (ET) – for ferrous tubes.
MFL Tank Bottom Floor Testing
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. offers you a quick and reliable inspection service by combining two techniques; Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) and Ultrasonic Testing. By using these two techniques the corrosion on the tank bottom floor can be detected and those corroded areas can be repaired as per API 653.
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. also uses TesTex Falcon S series Saturated Low Frequency Eddy Current testing technique which can differentiate both top and bottom side flaws, even through coatings.
Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. offers Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT) using the Teletext Focus pipe inspection system. We can inspect above and underground pipelines from a single sensor position.
In general, up to 60 meters can be tested from each position saving time and reducing costs.
Acoustic Emission Testing
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides Acoustic Emission Testing to inspect storage tanks, spheres, etc.
Acoustic Emission (AE) tank inspection services are undertaken while the tank remains in service and offer the client the following economic benefits:
- Minimal pre-inspection tank preparation.
- Tanks that are not structurally deficient remain in service.
- Structurally deficient tanks are ranked in terms of damage and prioritized for maintenance.
- Leaks are detected early, minimizing environmental damage.
- Simultaneous floor and annular ring inspection.
- Large tanks are completed in one day.
- Early detection of fatigue cracks in tank shell plates and welds.
Time of Flight Diffraction (TOFD)
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides ultrasonic ToFD services to inspect welds of process vessels and piping. ToFD is a reliable and quickly advancing ultrasonic technique with good sizing capabilities and higher inspection speed.
Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides ultrasonic phased array testing to inspect welds of process equipment, piping, and structures. Ultrasonic phased arrays offer very reliable detection and sizing capabilities along with a permanent record of ultrasonic inspection.
Corrosion Mapping RMS Scanner
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides corrosion mapping for plant piping and equipment.
We utilize a high-speed remote access corrosion mapping system (RMS Scanner) which does not require scaffolding to perform corrosion mapping on storage tanks, equipment, and piping.
The resolution can be set to 2×2, 5×5, or 10×10 mm. The system is capable of inspection from 4″ diameter to flat surfaces.
Annular Plate Ultrasonic Tank Scan
Short Range Ultrasound (SRUT) inspection of the outer tank bottom annular ring plates provides a testing method that is sensitive to top and underside deterioration. It can access critical locations on the tank bottom annular plates while the tank is in service.
Remote Videoscopy Inspection
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides Remote video inspection services for visual inspection of limited access areas such as heat exchanges, pressure vessels, and piping.
Long Range Pipeline Inspection
Positive Material Identification (PMI)
Small Proximity Radiation Exposure (SPRE)
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides Radiography Testing services to inspect the welds of piping, pressure vessels, and other process equipment on construction projects and plants.
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides ultrasonic shear wave inspection for welds inspection as well as Ultrasonic Longitudinal Wave Inspection to perform thickness measurement and corrosion scanning/mapping on the plant piping and pressure vessels as per the API 510 and API 570 etc.
Magnetic Particle Testing
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. offers Magnetic Particle Testing services to detect surface and sub-surface imperfections in the welds and heat-affected zones of piping and process equipment. We also provide Magnetic Particle Testing on process equipment during plant shutdown to detect service cracks on the internal surface of vessels.
We offer Penetrant Testing to detect surface and sub-surface imperfections in the welds and heat-affected zones of piping and process equipment.
Training and Consultancy
Besides NDT services, we also provide relevant NDT training courses.
Experienced instructors share knowledge that complies with the guidelines of international NDT Inspection standards, such as ASNT, API, AWS, AME ASTM, etc.
We offer ASNT Level II Training and Certification in:
- Radiography Testing Level II
- Ultrasonic Testing Level II
- Magnetic Particle Testing Level II
- Penetrant Testing Level II
- Visual Testing Level II
Besides these, we also offer:
- NDT Procedure Preparation, Review and Approval
- NDT Level III Consultancy Services
- ASME Audits
- and more!
Positive Material Identification
Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides Positive Material Identification (PMI) services to construction projects to identify or sort the different types of material.
With PMI, the composition of materials in alloys can be accurately determined. It is particularly useful for high-quality materials such as stainless steel and high alloy metals. While engineers push the boundaries of material capacity to the limit in their design, assurance that the proper material is used becomes of utmost importance.
We offer PMI with the XRF technology and OES for lighter elements like carbon.
Post-Weld Heat Treatment Services
In addition to NDT and inspection services, Axis Inspection Contracting JSC. provides Post-Weld Heat Treatment for plant piping after welding has been carried out to relieve residual stress that develops during the welding process. This also increases the toughness of the weld which avoids service cracks.
- Maintenance Services
- Shutdown and Turnaround
- Post-Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT)
- Hydro-Jetting Services
