Jurisdictional Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspection Services

Unbundled Jurisdictional and Shop Inspection Services

High-quality boiler and pressure vessel inspections

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 the operation and inspection of pressure vessels. 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.
