AVOID PRODUCT CONTAMINATION AND LOST PRODUCTION

Micro cracks and holes in heat exchangers, pressure vessels, heater coils and jacketed tanks can result in product contamination due to service liquid leakage.

Until now these defects have been difficult to diagnose and locate without dismantling the equipment and possibly having to remove potentially hazardous liquids. This process is time-consuming and can lead to significant loss of production, regardless of the outcome.

UNIQUE, NON-INTRUSIVE LEAKAGE DETECTION SERVICE

The certified SPX FLOW Gappscan on-site inspection service can detect internal defects down to very fine cracks. It provides reliable estimation of an equivalent hole size, thus enabling assessment regarding continued monitoring, planned repair interval, or immediate shutdown.

WHAT YOU GET

You receive an ISO 9000 compliant test certificate containing:

  • Test data
  • Calibration data and traceability data
  • SPX FLOW expert certification
  • Customer quotation for execution of the necessary remedial work

This enables you to decide whether or not to perform a repair on the spot or to continue using the equipment until it is due for scheduled maintenance.
A defect that has no immediate impact on production can be regularly monitored in order to prevent cross contamination of the finished product whilst in production.

RESULT

  • Leakage flow rate is determined and the size of any defect is estimated
  • GPS unit records positional and time-dependent information
  • The SPX FLOW qualified inspector can provide an immediate assessment of action required

YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Substantially reduced risk of product contamination
  • Substantially reduced or no unscheduled downtime for repairs
  • Consistent end-product quality
  • Substantially reduced risk of returns due to product contamination
  • Lower overall cost of production
