Drill Pipe Inspection

Drill Pipe Inspection

IOS Inspects BHA Tools, Drill Pipe, Heavyweight Drill Pipe (HWDP), and Tubing

IOS certified, professional inspectors thoroughly examine the tubular body, as well as connections or end areas. We will also check for possible imperfections and wall loss in the tubular body with our EMI equipment.

We inspect new and used drill tools and drill pipe using the latest techniques and top-of-the-line equipment. Our professional inspectors follow industry standard guidelines, are certified in accordance with industry specific standards and follow documented Standard Operating Procedures.

You can be confident we will arrive on-time with the right equipment and safety gear. We won’t stop until you are completely satisfied. Both in-plant and 24/7 mobile drill pipe inspection services are available.

You will receive detailed drill pipe inspection reports completed by our inspectors. We have recently introduced our proprietary TITAN tablet which provides visual evidence of failures and repairs while also archiving for future retrieval. EMI reports are always saved and available upon request.
