Splendora Pipe Services offers non-destructive testing and the inspection of oil country tubular goods manufactured to API specifications. Our personnel have extensive experience monitoring the following types of inspections:

Electromagnetic Inspection (EMI)

A method of determining wall thickness and detecting imperfections in steel tubes. Electronic scanner normally inspects only the tube. The EMI unit is used detecting longitudinal defects, transverse defects, and wall thinning in ferromagnetic casing, tubing.

Special End Area Inspection (SEA)

The special end area inspection is designed to detect transverse and longitudinal defects on the inside and outside surfaces of the end areas including the pins, couplings, threads and upsets. This inspection is principally for critical inspection of special upsets, integral connections and ends of high-strength pipe.

Full Magnetic Particle Inspection (FLMPI)

Magnetic Particle Inspection is a non-destructive test method for the detection of surface and sub-surface discontinuities in ferrous materials. The test method involves application of magnetic field externally or applying electric current through the material which in turn produces magnetic flux in the material. Simultaneously, visible ferrous particles on sprinkled or sprayed on the test surface.

Visual Thread Inspection (VTI)

Visual thread inspection is a service for locating thread inspections without the use of magnetic particles or thread gauging and inspection tools. This inspection applies to round threads on casing and tubing and buttress threads on casing.

Full-Length Drift Testing

Casing or tubing is drifted throughout its entire length to detect ID reduction. A cylindrical drift mandrel manufactured to the requirements in the latest edition of API 5CT Specification is used for this test.

Full-Length Ultrasonic Inspection (FLUT)

A combination of ultrasonic transducers, pulse-echo electronics, and recorder are used simultaneously to scan the pipe wall for longitudinal, transverse, and wall thinning imperfections.
