Axis Inspection Ltd. is an approved inspection service provider for SABIC, SWCC, SEC, SADARA, YASREF, SATROP, PETRORABIGH, KJO and many major EPC’s in the Kingdom.
We offer a plethora of Industrial and Inspection services that fit the needs of every type of project and deliver precise, fast results using the best tools and technologies available on the market.
Our services include:
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides complete T&I support by providing experienced inspection personnel such as:
Our inspection team works for pre-shutdown preparation. During shutdown our inspectors perform:
Axis Inspection Ltd. establishes the On-Stream Inspection (OSI) program to newly constructed projects, which include:
Axis Inspection Ltd. also undertakes frequent In-Service Inspection of plant piping and equipment. Our inspectors perform the scheduled external inspection of equipment as per API 510, and pipeline survey as per API 570. Our technicians perform the Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement of plant piping and equipment.
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides complete Head Exchanger inspection solutions for various tube materials using the following methods:
Axis Inspection Ltd. offers you a quick and reliable inspection service by combining two techniques; Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) and Ultrasonic Testing. By using these two techniques the corrosion on the tank bottom floor can be detected and those corroded areas can be repaired as per API 653.
Axis Inspection Ltd. also uses TesTex Falcon S series Saturated Low Frequency Eddy Current testing technique which has the ability to differentiate both top and bottom side flaws, even through coatings.
Axis Inspection Ltd. offers Guided Wave Ultrasonic Testing (GWUT) using the Teletest Focus pipe inspection system. We can inspection above and underground pipelines from a single sensor position.
In general up to 60 meters can be tested from each position saving time and reducing costs.
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides Acoustic Emission Testing to inspect storage tanks, spheres, etc.
Acoustic Emission (AE) tank inspection services are undertaken while the tank remains in service and offers the client the following economic benefits:
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides ultrasonic ToFD services to inspect welds of process vessels and piping. ToFD is a reliable and quickly advancing ultrasonic technique with good sizing capabilities and higher inspection speed.
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides ultrasonic phased array testing to inspect welds of process equipment, piping and structures. Ultrasonic phased arrays offer very reliable detection and sizing capabilities along with a permanent record of ultrasonic inspection.
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides corrosion mapping for plant piping and equipments.
We utilize a high speed remote access corrosion mapping system (RMS Scanner) which does not require scaffolding to perform corrosion mapping on storage tanks, equipment and piping.
The resolution can be set to 2×2, 5×5 or 10×10 mm. The system is capable to inspection from 4″ diameter to flat surfaces.
Short Range Ultrasound (SRUT) inspection of the outer tank bottom annular ring plates provides a testing method that is sensitive to top and underside deterioration. It can access critical locations on the tank bottom annular plates while the tank is in service.
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides Remote Videoscopy Inspection services for visual inspection of limited access areas such as heat exchanges, pressure vessels and piping.
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides Radiography Testing services to inspect the welds of piping, pressure vessels and other process equipment on construction projects and plants.
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides ultrasonic shear wave inspection for welds inspection as well as Ultrasonic Longitudinal Wave Inspection to perform thickness measurement and corrosion scanning/mapping on the plant piping and pressure vessels as per the API 510 and API 570 etc.
Axis Inspection ltd. offers Magnetic Particle Testing services to detect surface and sub-surface imperfections in the welds and heat-affected zones of piping and process equipment. We also provide Magnetic Particle Testing on process equipment during plant shutdown to detect service cracks on the internal surface of vessels.
We offer Penetrant Testing to detect surface and sub-surface imperfections in the welds and heat-affected zones of piping and process equipment.
Besides NDT services, we also provide relevant NDT training courses.
Experienced instructors share knowledge that complies with the guidelines of international NDT Inspection standards, such as ASNT, API, AWS, AME and ASTM etc.
We offer ASNT Level II Training and Certification in:
Besides these, we also offer:
Axis Inspection Ltd. provides Positive Material Identification (PMI) services to construction projects to identify or sort the different types of material.
With PMI, the composition of materials in alloys can be accurately determined. It is particularly useful for high quality materials such as stainless steel and high alloy metals. While engineers push the boundaries of material capacity to the limit in their design, assurance that the proper material is used becomes of utmost importance.
We offer PMI with the XRF technology and OES for lighter elements like carbon.
In addition to NDT and inspection services, Axis Inspection Ltd. provides Post-Weld Heat Treatment for plant piping after welding has been carried out to relieve residual stress that develops during the welding process. This also increases the toughness of the weld which avoids service cracks.
