Overview

Quest Integrity carries the legacy of a preeminently successful, long-established technology incubator based in the Pacific Northwest. One of many spinouts over the years, Quest Integrity was originally formed as a joint venture between Quest Integrated and Koch Industries in 2004. Now part of Baker Hughes, Quest Integrity is further expanding its suite of unique inspection technologies coupled with a passion to apply advanced computational mechanics models to empower superior decision making by its valued customers.


Products & Services
InVista™ In-Line Inspection Technology

Quest Integrity provides comprehensive inspection solutions powered by intelligent pigging technology and advanced engineering assessment capabilities. The InVista™ bi-directional in-line inspection (ILI) tool can provide integrity assessments of piping systems fabricated from austenitic, ferritic, and some non-metallic materials, in dual or multi diameters of 2- to 48-in, including varying pipe wall thicknesses.

Quest Integrity provides comprehensive inspection solutions powered by intelligent pigging technology and advanced engineering assessment capabilities. The InVista™ bi-directional in-line inspection (ILI) tool can provide integrity assessments of piping systems fabricated from austenitic, ferritic, and some non-metallic materials, in dual or multi diameters of 2- to 48-in, including varying pipe wall thicknesses.

Based on pipeline inspection results, an advanced engineering assessment can be made using Quest Integrity’s proprietary software: Streamline™ Universal Platform. It enables data set(s) from a pipeline to be interlaced with existing data on that same line. Additionally, the Streamline platform can calculate the remaining life and fitness-for-service of pipelines in accordance with API 579/ASME FFS-1 standards. Accurate corrosion rate information enables operators to take a proactive approach to reducing the risk of failures, while optimizing pipeline integrity management.

Following the field inspection and preliminary report, the high-quality ILI data is analyzed for wall loss and anomalies such as corrosion, denting and ovality. Our Streamline software assesses the pipeline’s fitness-for-service and quantifies the extent of metal loss damage. The remaining strength factor (RSF) and reduced maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOPr) are also determined for the complete data set. A final report including the data analysis and assessment results is delivered for each ILI (in-line inspection) project along with the Streamline data viewer.

Furnace Tube Inspection System (FTIS™)

Using conventional NDT methods to inspect coils in process fired heaters, furnaces and steam generators is challenging. Quest Integrity overcomes these challenges by offering a comprehensive solution with its Furnace Tube Inspection System (FTIS™) and advanced engineering assessment capabilities. FTIS™ is a high-resolution automated ultrasonic inspection technology that quickly and accurately inspects piping coils contained in fired heaters, furnaces and steam generators per API Recommended Practice 573. This technology eliminates the need for scaffolding and confined space entry and is uniquely designed to inspect even the most complex coil configurations such as those containing numerous pipe diameter changes, plug header fittings, tee connections and common headers.

FTIS™ detects and measures existing damage mechanisms such as internal and external corrosion, erosion and pitting, along with deformations such as bulging, swelling and ovality in serpentine and arbor coils, providing owner-operators with a complete and quantitative mapping of a coil’s wall thickness and geometry. These damage mechanisms are quickly identified and quantified in an inspection report.

An onsite preliminary assessment is typically delivered within 24 hours of the inspection. Based on the inspection results, an advanced engineering assessment using the company’s proprietary software, Streamline™, calculates the remaining life and fitness-for-service of the fired heater tubes in accordance to the API 579 / ASME FFS-1 standards. Accurate corrosion rate information helps decrease the risk of failure and helps operators improve run times, which translates to increased fired heater, furnace and steam generator efficiency and reliability.
