FAQ

As with all things, mechanical oil field equipment is vulnerable to failure. This failure can be the result of one of many different things, or even a combination of things. For example some contributing factors can be: repeated temperature or pressure swings, stress, normal assembly and disassemble practices, contact with abrasives, abuse, chemical exposure and manufacturing defects. When equipment flaws are not discovered, they can eventually result in failure. These failures are not only costly to the owner of the equipment; they also present a great danger to the personal and to the environment.

In an attempt to reduce the potential for these types of failures, governmental regulations have been levied on the oil and gas industry. These regulations require that select pieces of equipment must be tested and recertified on a recurring basis. These examinations must be administered by a government or a third party inspection facility that has had the appropriate training and hold said credentials.
