Mechanical Integrity Data for Planning & Maintenance
Improve planning and maintenance decision-making.
An advantage of our non destructive testing services that you can count on.
GGS testing provides concrete evidence of the state of your piping and vessels so maintenance and replacement funds can be allocated appropriately.
Prioritize replacement and repairs.
Systematically assign importance to the areas in your system that need attention. Your testing data can be reviewed at a high-level, in detail, and in comparison with your operational tolerances.
Avoid unnecessary maintenance.
Clear, thorough information eliminates assumptions about your system and helps you focus resources where they are needed.
An Arkansas Fortune 500 Company saved $5M worth of planned maintenance they didn’t need with data from GGS that corrected their assumptions about the health of their piping system.
Reporting for Planning and Maintenance
Access every detail you need to prioritize maintenance and achieve maximum life of your piping and vessels.
As an option, you may request a Prioritization Summary to be included in your report. This section is customized and distills the results based on your needs. You provide the parameters to set a baseline, and we organize your testing data in a manner that is most meaningful to you.
PLANNING & MAINTENANCE
Make better decisions with concrete information.

Planning & Maintenance in the Field
Examples of how we have helped customers identify and prioritize repair and replacement work.
Age Before Beauty, but Data Before Age
GGS wall thickness testing corrected the theory that replacing corroded pipe is always a better solution than cleaning.
Old Pipes vs New
At a beverage company’s cold storage warehouse in New Jersey, GGS finds a 6’ section of pipe along an insulated 110’ run of pipe measuring thinner than the rest – and it wasn’t due to corrosion.
Pipe wall thickness is a necessary baseline for decision-making.
To streamline repair and replacement planning, companies should have
1. Access to concrete data
2. Defined operating tolerances for wall thickness
The Pipe Wall Thickness Chart defines nominal wall-thickness metrics for piping commonly found in industrial process piping systems.
Defining Wall Thickness Acceptance Levels for Your In-Service Piping offers considerations for developing your approach and an alert thickness table tool.
