Industrial Surveys Shipping and More
Industrial Surveys for the shipping industry focus on containers, containerized tanks, flat racks and other industrial equipment used for storing and loading a variety of cargos.
The integrity of lifting points, framing, and stiffeners, as well as water-tight seals are critical in preventing accidents and damage to cargos. Water infiltration can ruin cargo, and failure of a structural component, whether during a lift or while in transit lashed to other containers can have catastrophic results.
Using ultrasonic measuring tools and other technology, Marine Surveyors Cayman can accurately measure thickness of steel components to determine whether manufacturer’s “wastage” limits have been reached.
Marine Surveyors Cayman also examines door seals, decking, piping, valves and other appurtenances to insure the integrity of the equipment.
Fresh Water Storage Tanks
Our knowledge and experience with Industrial Surveys for Shipping can also be applied to land-based equipment such as fresh water storage tanks.
As explained on our Corrosion Surveys page, Marine Surveyors Cayman can apply this technology to measure the level of cathodic protection on a fresh water storage tank, to determine if the “sacrificial anodes” have been consumed or are still functioning at an appropriate level.
For other industries, such as breweries, hospitals, and fuel distributors, Cayman Marine Surveying can apply our knowledge and experience with Industrial Surveys for Shipping to their storage tanks, batching vessels, machinery and electrical equipment/systems to detect faults and anomalies BEFORE they become major problems.
Using our Thermography Surveys technology as a rapid screening tool we can, in most cases, quickly locate “hot spots” which indicated anomalies and potential problems.
We can then use our other tools to investigate the hot spots to determine the extent of the potential problem and make recommendations for repairs.
