High-quality Jurisdictional inspection services

When pressure vessels are not properly maintained, there are major consequences. The most severe are boiler explosions and fires that injure workers, destroy property, and even lead to fatalities. Other problems include rupture failures and leakage which pose health and safety hazards.

To protect against such hazards, most U.S. 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 mandatory. 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.

Timely inspections are critical to keeping you compliant and reducing accidents. While others may have backlogs or logistical problems, TÜV SÜD ARISE gets inspections scheduled and completed fast. In fact, we are among the top of the industry in timeliness and preventing overdue inspections.
