RemedyAP NACE Coating Inspectors have a wide range of industry experience providing a resource to communicate with site teams whilst also collaborating in technical aspects of quality control, corrosion assessment and coating chemistry.
Tank Coating Inspector
RemedyAP provide inspection of tanks in industries, including;
- Oil and gas industry - RemedyAP support the API 653 – above ground storage tank inspector who performs condition assessment for repair or alteration of the tank structure. RemedyAP provides coating assessment of tanks including non-destructive testing of materials to determine its condition and provide specification writing in alignment with requirements set forth in API 652.
- Water and Process Industry – RemedyAP can provide full condition assessment including non-destructive testing, under floor corrosion assessment, coating assessment and report on condition of ancillary items such as; safety access systems, lightning protection, cathodic protection systems, roof structures, compound and foundations.Supporting their Clients, RemedyAP provide specification writing in alignment with WSA-201 Manual and WSAA Codes, Standards, Specifications and Tools.
Additionally during repair or alteration works RemedyAP provide independent third-party inspection and auditing of applicator works to ensure compliance to specification.
Pipeline Field Joint Coating Inspector
Pipelines carry oil and gas across the country and their operation is granted under license by government where operators are required to maintain stringent corrosion control programs to minimize any risk of leakage affecting people or the environment.
RemedyAP has experience navigating the mandatory requirement of AS2885 and AS4822. RemedyAP have a dedicated team of pipeline coating inspectors monitoring new field joint coating application and as authorized inspectors on field verification digs.
RemedyAP’s expertise and comprehensive reporting assists clients in meeting their regulatory obligations whilst ensuring expected pipeline integrity is achieved for the pipeline owner.
Hot Dip Galvanizing (HDG) Inspector
Hot Dip Galvanizing (HDG) is a zinc coating applied by dipping a steel part in molten zinc. A metallurgical bond occurs, and the zinc coating provides a barrier layer much like you expect from paint. HDG has an added benefit of providing sacrificial otherwise known as galvanic protection. The zinc will react to protect the steel in the presence of corrosion.
Often confusion surrounds HDG where many surface imperfections or wet storage stain can detract from the lustrous surface finish many Clients expect. RemedyAP can provide inspection and verification of surface defects to ensure imperfections are remedied.
Marine Coating Inspector
RemedyAP marine coating inspectors have a range of experience to independently represent you during a docking or major refit.
Their inspection team can build condition assessments on above water areas during sail and;
- Build maintenance manuals for ships staff to complete during sailings.
- Build a docking report for the Client to manage expected paint quantities and plan to minimize docking times.
During dockings, RemedyAP can provide;
- Inspection of vessel openings, under water hull, propellers, and provide independent assessment of surface areas requiring preservation through corrosion removal and coating application.
- Our independent inspection service can monitor the quality hold points during surface preparation and coating application to ensure the preservations achieve suitable durability expectations.
- Additionally our reporting can provide substantiation for contractor key performance criteria and financial variations.
Bridge Coating Inspector
Bridge inspection involves three levels of inspection where RemedyAP provide;
Level 2 inspections - to measure and rate the condition of structures to:
- Identify and prioritise maintenance needs
- Assess the effectiveness of past maintenance treatments
- Model and forecast changes in condition (deterioration modelling) and residual life
- Estimate future requirements for maintenance budgets
Level 3 investigations - to generally include a combination of field investigation and theoretical analysis of corrosion and coating survey relevant to a bridge structure.
Passive Fire Protection (PFP) Inspector
Passive fire protection is a term used to describe any indirect means of protecting a structure from fire as opposed to direct fire protection which includes sprinklers and deluge systems.
Passive fire protection is specified at the direction of a fire engineer and often provided through either cementitious and/or intumescent coatings.
These work by expanding when heat is applied to them. The expanding paint forms an insulating layer of fire-resistant char which in turn keeps the temperature of the steel down. Proper application is critical to the performance of the system.
RemedyAP PFP inspection team are experienced and provide independent verification during construction that the coatings have been applied to meet the specification and thus provide suitable fire protection.
Our inspection and reporting provide Owner’s assurance that they have met the required fire rating to substantiate any future insurance claims.
Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is one of the most difficult corrosion processes to prevent. The reason for that is, water invariably seeps into the insulation and sometimes unseen until pipe or tank leakage occurs. Data shows that about 60% of pipe leaks are caused by CUI.
RemedyAP insulation inspection team are experienced and provide independent verification during construction that the insulation, weather barriers and coatings underneath have been applied to meet the specification and thus provide suitable protection from corrosion under insulation.
RemedyAP can provide insulation surveys on aged systems using thermal imaging to detect variations in temperature. This information is catalogued and provides a basis for plant operators to identify key areas for inspection without needing to remove the entire insulation system, the plant operator can focus inspection on discreet areas and save time and money.
