Early Detection for Failure Prevention

Gain peace of mind with early detection.

An advantage of our non destructive testing services that you can count on.

Find concealed vulnerabilities in your system.

Protect your company with testing that identifies where piping, components and vessel conditions are less than satisfactory.

Learn the level of risk for weaknesses in your system.

Data collected during testing conclusively reports volume and thickness measurements. This information allows for straightforward decision-making when compared to your company’s operating tolerances.

Resolve issues prior to failure.

Early detection metrics on tested locations ensure that you can appropriately maintain or replace components and ensure failure prevention.

Early Detection Reporting

Locate and resolve wet insulation, corrosion, erosion, thinning metal, components not to code and more before incident.

How to Predict and Pinpoint Threats to Your Piping

Documenting and reporting ammonia leaks in your refrigeration system is a tricky task, but necessary.

When GGS is onsite testing your system, our technicians are keenly aware of the sights, sounds and smells that indicate there may be an issue. This ‘soft visual’ technique, not related to the readings we are taking, yields findings that include detection of ammonia leaks.

If we suspect a leak in your system, we immediately notify the onsite customer contact. Additionally, any fugitive emissions are noted in your NDT report as Ammonia Fumes, releases are documented as Ammonia Leak. Leaks in excess of 100 lbs must be reported within 15 minutes of discovery.

Current information and resources about calculating, reporting and reducing leaks is covered by the IIAR Condenser: Reporting Release Rates: How to Find the Middle Ground.
