An API inspection can prevent catastrophic failures and oil spills: In this economy, many facility owners are forced to operate outdated and aging equipment. A proper API inspection will identify areas of concern and recommend a course of treatment & repair. American Petroleum Institute (API) is an association that promulgates manufacturing standards for oil and natural gas tanks, piping and equipment. 

EMIS provides visual inspection and turnaround management services for the oil and gas, petroleum, petrochemical, pipeline, chemical, power generation, and refinery industries. EMIS has deep experience with oil and gas projects, from mega-projects to smaller batch inspections for components and equipment. 

API 570 inspection for piping system:

This section provides the standards for testing, inspecting and monitoring of the integrity of petroleum and chemical pipelines. In practice, the standard is often applied to evaluate any piping system. API inspection code 570 requires periodic thickness measurements by ultrasonic thickness testing (UTT) to determine the corrosion rate and describes methods for welding and hot tapping.  API 570 also discusses a system for maintaining inspection records.

API inspection 510 for pressure vessels:

API 510 inspection code applies to chemical & refining process pressure vessels. The code covers the pressure vessels and the relief devices protecting them. Standards are given for inspection, corrosion and thickness testing. The section also gives a way to calculate the remaining life of the vessel.

API inspection 653 for Storage Tanks:

API 653 is the standard for tanks over 50 feet tall or having diameter greater than 30 feet. Covers the maintenance, inspection, alteration and repair of steel, field-erected aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) built to API 650 or API 12C standards. API 653 inspections must be performed by a licensed inspector. Brittle fracture assessment is covered under API 653. API 653 includes welding requirements for field erected tanks.
