red iron inspection

“Nothing Gets By Us”

Lone Star Red Iron Testing & Recertification is a new business, but we are not new to business. We were founded by an experienced management team who collectively possess more than 75 years of experience in the American Petroleum Industry. Since 1988 I have served in many positions in this Industry from repair, testing, manufacturing, design and development both independently and with equipment manufacturers, inspection, troubleshooting, engineering, data management and the list goes on…

We provide the obligatory 3rd party inspection and recertification services that our customers need to meet compliance with governmental regulations regarding competence in flow line equipment. We also offer repair, rebuilding, painting, banding and certificates to our customers in the oil and gas industry.

Our technicians are trained and certified on flow iron just like our daily activities on the job require. We feel that this is the best option when bringing “Hands-On” experience to the table. Our Technicians attend training at a center where they receive classroom instruction, hands on training and testing at a facility that has custom tailored their training material to our market needs. Then they complete their training and earn their certifications by spending hundreds of hours of “On-the-Job” training under the guidance of a Level II NDT Certified Inspector.

The inspections we perform are done using non-destructive testing methods known as NDT. The specific testing that we administer is for external visual and internal visual, Ultrasonic Thickness Gauging, Hardness testing, Magnetic Particle and Hydrostatic Pressure vs. time testing.

Our home service center is positioned centrally between the Eagle Ford, Barnett, Haynesville-Bossier, and the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale plays. We pick-up and deliver flow iron equipment for our customers for service at our facility or they can drop it off and pick it up themselves if they prefer. We also have a mobile unit where inspections, re-certifications and limited rebuilds and repairs can be done at your site. Our coverage area extends well outside of the Texas / Louisiana bordering states and we make it a priority to quickly respond to the needs of our customers.

We are results and customer satisfaction driven! Our commitment is best revealed through the quality of our work, the timeliness of our completions, the attitude of our employees, the price for our services and the overall experience of our customers.

We look forward to working with you on your testing and recertification needs.
