Industrial Asset Management Made Simple

Our Inspectors are certified ASNT-SNT-TC-1A Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) technicians. Our NDT methods yield in-depth quantitative results, allowing us to calculate corrosion rates and find areas of excessive deterioration. We can then recommend the preventative maintenance needed to mitigate the probability of a hazardous discharge into the environment and avoid more costly repairs later on.

We perform both fixed interval inspections and risk-based inspections to provide insight into the structural integrity of your assets when it is most needed. Our expert API 653, API 510, STI SP0001, and API 570 inspections will uncover exactly how well your tank is holding up, to both outside elements and the product it contains.

Why New Mexico is Choosing NDT Tanknicians

Economic growth in New Mexico has been as diverse as the state’s natural environment. Aerospace, film and television, and tech companies are investing in the state, while the Natural Resources, Mining, and Construction industry has seen a 11% job growth from 2021 to 2022. Industries in trade, transportation, and utilities make up the third largest sector of the state’s workforce. With a direct border with Mexico, and located between the ports of Houston and Long Beach, New Mexico exports approximately $3.5 billion worth of goods globally. A recently expanded southern port in Santa Teresa also lies within an overweight cargo zone, improving international trade access. Union Pacific has a significant rail presence across the state which offers access to over 60 major markets across Canada, Mexico, and the United States. As new fields and opportunities continue to open in New Mexico, NDT Tanknicians offers the technical know-how and experience to meet our customers’ needs.

The climate in New Mexico is generally favorable for a wide variety of industrial applications. Known as the “Land of Enchantment,” the state is situated at elevations between 2800 and 13000 feet above sea level and experiences 4 seasons with relatively low humidity. The area experiences occasional thunderstorms and snow events but the most notable natural disaster threats come in the form of wildfires and flooding. Various local agencies provide guidance on the best practices for avoiding the potential for igniting fires and meeting air quality thresholds. NDT Tanknicians assures our clients that the structural integrity of their storage vessels will meet or exceed these standards, safeguarding our clients’ assets and the surrounding environment.

Energy in New Mexico is big business. Sustainable and green energy sectors have become a target industry for the state. Nearly half of all electricity generated in the state is exported. Natural gas, an emerging hydrogen economy, and the Bravo Dome carbon dioxide gas field supplement the state’s solar and wind infrastructure. As of 2021, New Mexico surpassed North Dakota to be the second largest producer of crude oil in the United States, producing approximately 11% of the total crude in the country and accounting for approximately 6% of its natural gas reserves. The San Juan Basin in the northwest, the Permian Basin in the southeast, and the Raton Basin in the northeast produce a lion’s share of the oil and gas in the state. Since 2015, New Mexico has seen a stark upward trend on oil and gas production.

NDT Tanknicians offers reliable tank inspection services industrial companies in New Mexico are looking for. In addition to non-destructive tank testing, we provide high-quality anti-corrosive coating and lining services and expert repair services, allowing you to extend the lifespan of your assets and safeguard against costly premature degradation caused by weather, oxidation, or other means.
