Pressure Vessel Inspections

Testing Your Pipework or Pressure Vessel for Certification: The Importance of Choosing an Experienced Pressure Vessel Inspector

Vital infrastructure such as pipework is easy to overlook at times due to its ubiquity, but its importance is hard to understate. Whatever your industry, any vessel that must store or transport materials at high pressures is often essential to production. Failure is not an option, both due to the impacts on daily operations and the potential safety implications. For that reason, undertaking rigorous pressure testing of pipework is critical. An experienced provider can streamline the process and assist your operation in achieving the necessary NATA certifications if required. At Pipe Tek, we bring a wealth of experience and an array of cutting-edge technology to the table to assist you in achieving your certification goals promptly.

We know that you depend on your tester not just for certification, but for accurate data on the process as well. A core component of this service is our ability to rapidly provide our clients with the data they need to understand system performance.

Pipe Tek’s skilled operators and advanced equipment enable us to certify vessels to these standards at pressures as high as 70,000kPA, making our services suitable for many industries. Afterwards, certified pipework typically requires a fresh inspection in 2-year periods. We understand the challenges in arranging for such an inspection, and our position as a technological leader in this industry informs our processes. We can complete these required checks even if you cannot take the vessel out of service.
