What we do
Corrosion is a major cost for the Energy Generation Industry due in part to the high temperatures of operation, harsh environmental conditions, and highly abrasive materials. You lose money every day that your plant is not generating power due to corrosion. The Coating Inspector combines expertise with years of experience working across North America and Europe.
Corrosion & Coating Surveys
A coatings survey provides a sense of how a coating is currently performing and identifies any problems that need to be addressed immediately. The survey provides the next steps to be undertaken. Surveys are a necessary part of an ongoing maintenance plan and should be performed on a regular basis.
Coating inspections include checks of industrial equipment to ensure protective coatings were correctly applied to minimize corrosion risk. All our inspectors go through rigorous training to learn how to identify problems in coating applications. They can make recommendations for which types of coatings can best protect the materials from corroding.
We create custom maintenance programs that identify areas to be surveyed, the level of detail required, and manpower that will be required to execute. We determine the data that will be taken and format to be used to ensure consistent judging criteria.
The Coating Inspector provides project-specific Design Build Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) inspection plans that typically include: identify roles and responsibilities, preparatory and follow-up inspection guidelines, testing frequency, materials pre-approval, deficiency and non-compliance reports.
Our consulting services include both coating inspection and failure analysis, damage assessment, surface roughness determination, technical specifications, general technical assistance, and granulometric research. Consulting for the chemical, construction, energy, industrial manufacturing, and oil and gas markets.
What our clients say
We had a last-minute critical request to get the services of a Certified Level III NACE Inspector that could fit the three-shift schedule from our company’s painters and were recommended to The Coating Inspector. Not only were they able to amend their schedule to assist with the certifications and traveled a couple of times to York, Pennsylvania but their response to the request was fast and without hesitation. The customer service was outstanding, from the inspection to the documentation presented in a very timely and professional manner.Elisa Yates, Sourcing ManagerVoith Hydro Inc.
