Applus+ ensures safety and efficiency in major inspection project for petrochemical company in Mexico


    Applus+ has been selected to carry out a mechanical inspection and asset integrity assessment project for a petrochemical multinational in Mexico for 2 years. This project contemplates the provision of mechanical integrity evaluation and inspection services, as well as procedures to verify compliance with operating permits for pressure vessels, boilers, pipes, and storage tanks.

    The Applus+ team of experts in Mexico evaluates and executes the inspection plans for the mechanical integrity of static equipment, including pressure vessels, boilers, pipes and furnaces. In addition, conventional and advanced non-destructive testing (NDT), such as ultrasonic testing, visual inspections, liquid penetrant testing, magnetic particles, digital radiography, guided waves and pulsed eddy currents (Incotest), are carried out to assess the current condition of the assets.

    This project is of great importance to the petrochemical company, as it currently has a quality department that is actively working towards a major plant shutdown. Applus+ focuses on minimising the impact of the plant shutdown and helping to assess as many assets as possible prior to the shutdown. In addition, effective mechanical integrity management and inspection services can help reduce downtime, increase efficiency and improve safety in ethylene production plants.

    Applus+ incorporates its mechanical integrity services, conventional and advanced NDT, which adds value in several aspects. Firstly, it helps ensure the safe and reliable operation of assets, reducing the risk of failure of critical equipment and components. Secondly, it helps improve plant efficiency and productivity by identifying equipment problems early and performing preventive rather than corrective maintenance. In addition, Applus+ services in this contract help extend the useful life of the equipment and reduce repair and replacement costs.

    Applus+ is committed to excellence in the provision of mechanical integrity inspection and assessment services, and we know that the incorporation of these services has a significant impact on the safety, efficiency and profitability of an ethylene production plant such as our client’s.
