Post Weld Heat Treating Services

Post Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT) reduces the residual stresses formed during welding. It also restores the macro structure of the steel. Mandatory in high pressure applications, constructors have to strictly follow PWHT requirements to avoid component failures

PWHT eliminates the effects by heating, soaking, and cooling the weld area in a controlled manner to temperatures below the first transformation point, giving the macro structure sufficient time to readjust to its original state and removing the residual stress.

Hardness Testing

Hardness is the measure of how resistant solid matter is to various kinds of permanent shape change when a force is applied. Macroscopic hardness is generally characterized by strong intermolecular bonds, but the behavior of solid materials under force is complex; therefore there are different measurements of hardness: scratch hardness, indentation hardness, and rebound hardness.

Hardness is dependent on ductility, elastic stiffness, plasticity, strain, strength, toughness, viscoelasticity, and viscosity.

Out of Service / On-Stream inspection

A. On-Service Inspection (OSI): This inspection is performed while the tank is still in service.

  • Inspection Scope mainly involves detailed visual examination on exterior of the tank done by an authorized API-653 inspector and ultrasonic thickness measurement of the shell & roof plate including all nozzles.

B. Out of ServiceInspection (OOSI):  This inspection is performed while the tank is not in service.

  • Our authorized API-653 inspector conducts a visual inspection on exterior & interior of the tank and assures the quality and completeness of the nondestructive examination (NDE) results.
  • Nondestructive examination mainly involves MFLT on tank bottom & annular plates, ultrasonic thickness measurement of the shell & roof plate including all nozzles.

C. Reports: Inspections shall be documented in a comprehensive report containing:

  • All observations
  • NDE results (UT, MFTL, etc.)
  • Complete evaluation of the condition of the tank
  • Tank repair recommendations, remaining life, tank external shell settlement cosine graph and inspection interval.
