Industrial Asset Management Made Simple

Our Pennsylvania tank 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 The Steel City is Choosing NDT Tanknicians

The mighty and beautiful City of Bridges is known for its thriving steel industry, but it is also home to a growing petroleum sector. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, there are approximately 350,000 conventional oil and natural gas wells and 13,000 unconventional natural gas wells drilled in the state. United Oil Company, Monarch Oil, Highland Milling & Asphalt, and the Pittsburgh Asphalt Company operate in the city, as does the Northeast US headquarters of Chevron Corporation. The Port of Pittsburgh is one of the nation’s busiest ports for domestic trade and the Conway Rail Yard is the nation’s second-largest, enabling the area’s refineries and manufacturers convenient access to the domestic market.

Our customers in Pittsburgh appreciate our commitment to providing expert, high-quality service. We appreciate being able to spend some time in the most livable city in America.

The 1988 Ashland oil spill into the Monongahela River (caused by a failed tank) and the 2022 oil spill along the Allegheny River have emphasized the importance of protecting the region’s natural resources. Our non-destructive tank inspections and repair services help to minimize the possibility of leaks, protecting not only the environment but also the reputation of your business.
