NACE Coating and Lining Inspection

Mass Tank NACE Certified inspectors have undergone training to specifically support your coating inspection needs.

NACE, which stands for the National Association of Corrosion Engineers, is a professional organization dedicated to the study and control of corrosion. NACE inspections refer to the various inspection and assessment processes carried out by NACE-certified inspectors to evaluate and manage corrosion-related issues, primarily in industries where corrosion can have serious consequences, such as the oil and gas, chemical, and maritime industries. Here’s a brief overview of NACE inspections and their importance:

  1. Corrosion Management: NACE inspections play a critical role in the management of corrosion-related issues. Corrosion can lead to equipment failure, environmental damage, and safety hazards. NACE-certified inspectors are trained to identify, assess, and mitigate corrosion-related risks.
  2. Asset Integrity Management: NACE inspections are an integral part of asset integrity management programs in industries where the failure of critical equipment or infrastructure due to corrosion can have significant safety and financial implications.
  3. Regulatory Compliance: In many industries, there are regulatory requirements and standards related to corrosion control and inspection. NACE-certified inspectors ensure that organizations comply with these requirements and maintain the safety and integrity of their assets.
  4. Environmental Protection: Corrosion can result in leaks or spills that harm the environment. NACE inspections help prevent environmental damage by identifying and addressing corrosion issues before they lead to incidents.
  5. Cost Reduction: Effective corrosion management through NACE inspections can extend the service life of assets and reduce maintenance and replacement costs. It also helps prevent costly shutdowns and accidents.

Inspection Techniques: NACE inspectors use a variety of techniques and equipment to assess the condition of assets and to identify corrosion issues. This can include visual inspections, non-destructive testing (NDT), material analysis, and more.

In summary, NACE inspections are an essential component of corrosion control and management in industries where corrosion poses significant risks. Mass Tank’s NACE-certified inspectors are trained professionals who provide expertise in identifying, assessing, and mitigating corrosion issues to ensure the safety, reliability, and longevity of critical assets. Their work contributes to environmental protection, regulatory compliance, and cost reduction for organizations in various sectors.
