We serve northwestern Canada from our locations in Grande Prairie and Vegreville and with mobile units that can be dispatched throughout the area. We specialize in the inspection and engineering certification of all types of overhead lifting devices such as cranes, pickers and sideboom pipelayers as well as all types of oilfield-related lifting equipment. We also specialize in the inspection of all types of downhole tools, flowline and vessels. We do general magnetic particle, liquid penetrant and ultrasonic thickness testing as part of our clients' preventative maintenance and regulatory requirements programs. We have an in-house engineering staff for certification, and for design and development of your overhead lifting equipment needs.
Products & Services
Rees NDT Inspection Services offers an extensive selection of non-destructive testing services to meet your needs.
We have CGSB/ASNT trained inspectors on staff to offer the following inspection methods:
- Dry Magnetic Powder
- Wet Fluorescent Magnetic Particle
- Wet Black/White Magnetic Particle
- The best-known trade name in Magnetic Particle inspection is Magnaflux
- So occasionally we'll get asked to 'magnaflux' something!
- Liquid Penetrant
- Sometimes referred to as Dye Pen, LPI, or Dye Penetrant
- LPI is used for non-magnetic materials
- It's also ideal for checking for through-porosity, like ensuring that tanks are entirely sealed
- Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement
- Corrosion surveys of flowline, tanks, and pressure vessels
- Ultrasonic Shear Wave
- Used to detect subsurface flaws in materials as an alternative to X-rays
- Positive Material Identification
- Sometimes knows as 'Texas Nuke' after some of the first commercial units
- A portable, handheld method of determining alloy composition when mill certs aren't available or known
We also do hardness testing using methods appropriate to the piece and the requirements, including:
- Rockwell Hardness Testing--ASTM E18
- Brinell Hardness Testing --ASTM E10-07
- Shore (rebound) Method --ASTM A956
- and the new electric resistance method
We also have an in-house mechanical engineering department to serve your certification and design needs.
Whether your need is to determine a capacity for an as-built unit, or to design a unit for fabrication, certification and use, we have the team to meet your needs.
