TYPES OF COATING INSPECTION

Cathodic Protection

Carthodic protection is a critical mitigation component to protect your assets against corrosion. By using an electro-chemical technique, corrosion is transferred from the primary material that you want to protect, to another metal.

The NACE institute offers a standardized education in Cathodic Protection. Through practical and theoretical training it empowers NACE-certified corrosion engineers to mitigate and reverse corrosion on business-critical materials.

Coating Inspection

Coating inspectors are NACE-certified and inspect industrial coatings across a wide variety of commercial and industrial industries. Protective coatings and paint are critical in maintaining equipment integrity. Coating inspection is the process of evaluating degradation and corrosion on those protective coatings.

Corrosion Management

A proactive corrosion management program, supervised by a NACE inspector is critical to maintaining industrial and heavy-duty equipment and assets.

By establishing a preventive maintenance plan and regular NACE-certified inspection, your business assets will be better protected against critical failure, reduced efficiency, and costly delays as a result.

We have the tools and technologies to expertly analyze surface coatings and provide detailed reports on their condition, allowing our customers to make informed business decisions on scheduling, budgeting and maintenance. The coating industry is fast changing. Advancements and new products enter the marketplace on a continual basis. Think of us as a beneficial resource that can enhance sound technical and economical choices for your coating projects from start to finish.

COATING & CORROSION MAINTENANCE PLAN

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

The Coating Inspector can prevent costly damage before it affects your critical infrastructure. By establishing a regular inspection and coating maintenance program you can protect your assets from corrosion, deterioration and ensure your protective coatings are efficiently protecting your equipment through regular quality assurance from an effective corrosion maintenance plan.

Coating Maintenance Plan

THE COATING INSPECTOR MAINTENANCE PLANS

We protect our client assets with preventative measures. By regularly inspecting for abrasion, corrosion and regular wear and tear, you’ll prevent critical failures and costly repairs to your equipment.

Coating maintenance program and inspection is a critical operating cost and investment in facility and infrastructure owner’s assets. The consequence of not establishing a regular maintenance plan is far greater, resulting in high-cost savings.

Business and infrastructure owners must ensure regular inspection and preventative measures taken to maintain their protective coatings to increase the lifespan of their equipment and maximize operational efficiency.

BENEFITS OF A MAINTENANCE PLAN

  • Higher equipment efficiency
  • Reduction in costly repairs, which in an emergency can come with an additional cost
  • Prevention of corroded parts, materials, and infrastructure
  • A longer working lifespan of materials
  • Prevention or lessening of equipment downtime due to costly shutdown due to repairs
  • Prevention of failures in critical infrastructure such as bridges and rail which disrupts the supply chain
  • Enhanced workplace safety and compliance with local regulation
  • Reduced liability and risk from a potential failure resulting in legal liability, injured workers, reduced throughput and operation
  • A cleaner, better-looking, more aesthetically-pleasing facility

 All protective coatings deteriorate or corrode over time. Corrosion maintenance through inspection, monitoring, and repair will prevent this from happening to your assets and equipment.
