THE Applus+ SOLUTION
Applus+ personnel across the globe maintain extensive knowledge of seamless and welded manufacturing processes through our membership of societies such as API. Our services cover line-pipe and steel production and also oil country tubular goods (OCTG), including drill pipe and specialist casings.
Clients can select the level of mill surveillance for their requirements, from a full-inspection team to ad-hoc steel mill surveillance. The steel and pipe mill inspection team can be either globally experienced or well-trained local personnel chosen for the specific project requirements. With a wide range of steel mill surveillance expertise, our inspectors may include inspection supervisors, hydro-test inspectors, final bench inspectors, load-out inspectors and coating inspectors.
The steel and pipe mill vender surveillance services at Applus+ can be delivered during steel manufacture, pipe production and pipe coating. During production monitoring, Applus+ personnel can either deploy our own tracking and reporting documentation or run the mill’s own internal system. Our vendor surveillance services at steel and pipe mills include defect-rate tracking and managing rejected items.
