Hamcock Industrial Access also provides Non Destructive Testing (NDT) services to help determine the structural integrity of industrial chimneys, smokestacks, or Cement and Lime facility structures. With NDT methods, we are able to test the strength and structural integrity of your structure without affecting usefulness or performance.
NDT methods include Ultrasonic Thickness (UT) Checking, Infrared Thermography, hardness tests for concrete and FRP structures, and Petrographic Testing. These methods are used to identify vulnerabilities and then create a repair or maintenance plan that will work to quickly remedy these situations before they turn into costly and time consuming problems.
Ultrasonic Thickness (UT) Checking – Hamcock Industrial Access technicians use UT meters to test for thinning of material from corrosion or erosion, to determine any unusual or excessive areas of wear that could compromise structural integrity and safety. We then recommend and prioritize corrective actions.
Infrared Thermography – Hamcock Industrial Access uses Infrared Thermography to help identify leakages of heat that may occur at welds, couplings, valves, junctions, or connections in structures, piping, ductwork, breaching or stack construction. Identifying & repairing these vulnerabilities early can prevent outages and plant shutdowns which can be more costly and time consuming.
