Pumps and Valve Inspection is an
essential procedure in any mechanical or industrial system that relies on the controlled
flow of liquids and gasses. Pumps mechanically create pressure or suction to move or compress liquids & gasses. Valves control the directional movement
of these liquids & gasses in pipes, tubes, ducts, etc. In industries such as Oil & Gas and Petrochemical,
the nature of these liquids and gasses may be abrasive and corrosive to pump and valve components, which emphasizes the need for inspection.
Process & quality
Engineers/technicians ensure that pumps and valves being manufactured and serviced
in the field are free of defects. Defects can impede flow, or worse, cause catastrophic system failures. These technicians look for porosity, burs, and other debris from the manufacturing process. In-service use also creates abrasion, corrosion, erosion, cavitation, and sliding wear in pumps and valves.
These defects and signs of wear likely impede flow, cause leaks, or worse, cause catastrophic system failures. Inspection tools are critical to locate and document these defects and signs of wear to ensure quality and safety.
InterTest, Inc. has over 40 years of experience providing visual solutions for pump & valve inspection applications. InterTest, Inc. has visual solutions to find and record the defects and signs of wear in pumps & valves.
With articulation, recording capabilities, and multiple directions of view, InterTest, Inc. video borescopes come in various lengths, diameters, and
configurations for almost any pump & valve inspection application. For example, a dual-view video borescope can simultaneously produce a
straight-forward and right-angle image for time-saving inspections.
