INSPECTION & TESTING
NDT INSPECTION, STORAGE TANK INSPECTION, PRESSURE VESSEL INSPECTION.
Armfield Engineering Inspection & Testing Services help to ensure that your plant equipment, storage tanks, pressure vessels are properly-designed, operating efficiently, and free of mechanical integrity concerns.
Our engineers can assist with the development of inspection and maintenance guidelines and procedures for new tanks, pressure equipment, power plant equipment, processing equipment along with evaluating new tank designs and existing atmospheric storage tank conditions for regulatory compliance, including API 620, API 650, and API 653.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a wide group of testing and analysis techniques used by industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component, structure or system for characteristic differences or welding defects and discontinuities without causing damage to the original part. The tests and inspections are used in manufacturing, fabrication and in-service inspections to ensure product integrity and reliability, to control manufacturing processes, lower production costs and to maintain a uniform quality level.
At Armfield Engineering, we help you ensure the reliability and safety of your products, equipment or plant assets with our world-class services in non-destructive testing (NDT), materials testing. Our Total Quality Assurance services can support production processes, quality control, and regulatory compliance as well as new construction, pipelines, plant maintenance and scheduled shutdown inspection.
Our world leading services in the development and application of non-destructive testing procedures ensures your equipment; plant assets and products remain operational, reliable and safe.
Failure of a component, structure or weld can cause significant hazard to the environment and often leads to significant costs. Ensure safe, continuous and cost effective performance of your asset, basing your decisions on reliable NDT-data on the assets condition.
We deliver NDT services to all industries during fabrication, in-service as well as during shut downs and maintenance.

Storage Tank & Pipeline Inspections
The storage of liquids in above-ground storage tanks is an important element in the energy supply chain. the integrity and condition of a storage tank is of utmost importance in avoiding failure. When storing fuel, it’s important to regularly test the tank and associated pipework to check its integrity.
In fuel storage facilities, fuel degrades in quality overtime which can lead to hidden flaws, cracks and corrosion in tanks. Even minor damage can hugely increase the risk of a tank failure.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is the only method to see the exact current’ integrity status’ of a tank. It uses measurement techniques to pinpoint any damage.
Armfield Engineering provides a comprehensive array of inspection tools to perform API 653 compliant evaluations.
- Visual Inspections
- Tank floor surveys (MFL & Ultrasonic Corrosion Mapping)
- Annular Plate inspections using SRUT – Short Range UT and PEC – Pulsed Eddy Current
- Critical Zone Inspection – Floor to shell seam weld, using the latest Phased Array Ultrasonic
- Corrosion Mapping –Ultrasonic Surveys of storage tanks and associated piping systems.
- Coating Inspections
- Corrosion Control Services
We use a wide range of advanced NDT techniques for aboveground and underground tanks and all of their individual components, including floors, welds, annular rings, roofs, shells, and more.
