Unbundled Jurisdictional Shop Inspection Services
Pressure vessels are used in a wide variety of industries and if not properly manufactured and maintained, can be subject to cracking and damage. These can result in rupture failures and leakage which can pose considerable health and safety hazards to personnel within a facility, including risks of fire and explosion.
To ensure safety against such events, most US states have laws regulating pressure vessel inspections. While requirements vary between jurisdictions, high-pressure boilers (15 psi and higher operating pressure) typically require one internal inspection and an additional external inspection each year. Compliance with these requirements is a must for facilities with these types of equipment.
Unfired pressure vessels, such as air and water storage tanks, as well as low-pressure boilers and fired storage water heaters may also have inspection requirements. Inspection frequencies for these industrial systems and components range from annual to five-year intervals.
Boiler and pressure vessel inspections are maintained not only to provide a safer and loss-controlled work environment for industrial equipment, but to keep your company within the guidelines of the law. Inspections are required by corresponding state boiler and pressure vessel laws (MSHA) and O.S.H.A. (for federal law).
In order to adequately prepare for your jurisdictional boiler or pressure vessel inspection, there are steps you can take prior to both internal and external inspections that will make the process easier for the inspectors’ and you.
