API Source Inspector Rotating Equipment (SIRE)

In today’s increasingly challenging oil, gas, and chemical industry, inspecting rotating equipment isn’t a luxury anymore. It’s a necessity. If you want to maximize the quality of the equipment you need repaired or purchased, then you should know everything about the American Petroleum Institute (API) standards from the inside out.

You won’t even have to put a lot of effort into learning about them as we’ve got you covered. Having served many oil, gas, chemical and energy companies worldwide, we’ve gathered extensive knowledge regarding rotating equipment inspections.

Apart from assisting you with engineering support and consultation, you can also count on us to help you understand the latest API standards and how to comply with them.

The job of a source inspector is to act as a field representative for the end user or purchaser. Their duties involve inspecting manufactured and fabricated equipment materials at the vendors or supplier’s facilities. This also includes confirming that the suppliers or vendors quality management system is being utilized effectively every step of the way.

This also includes confirming that the suppliers or vendors quality management system is being utilized effectively every step of the way.

    Inspections and Its Benefits

    An inspection is performed to ensure quality is maintained of various machinery and equipment in the oil, gas, and chemical industries. Different types of inspections are performed at different points during the process.

    These inspections may be performed by different inspectors with proper certifications for their discipline. This needs to be strongly considered during planning of Inspection Test Plans ( ITP’s ) to have the right qualified inspector involved in your project. Who would really want a welding inspector witnessing a performance test on a pump or a compressor without proper certifications? Not even the welding inspector really wants to do it but they will check the box if asked. But what does this really get you in the long run.

    These inspections are performed by individuals known as API inspectors. They must possess in-depth knowledge of standards and practices in the industry in order to be certified. This is where we fill in the gap. We provide certified Source Inspectors for Rotating Equipment (API SIRE).

    We strive to provide a complete comprehensive inspection service for rotating equipment. This means whether it is a new project package being built to providing surveillance during overhauls or major repairs. We have you covered.

    API inspection entails the following benefits:

    Prevents Facing Problems

    The significant advantage of API inspection is that the inspectors can identify potential problems long before they arise. In doing so, they won’t only save your time, but money too. For instance, overlooking if proper test procedures or materials was used, can produce disastrous results. But you can avoid that with proper qualified inspectors.

    Encourages Proactive Thinking

    Regular inspections encourage you to think proactively. Instead of waiting for your machines to suffer problems, you can get them inspected and take corrective measures on time. It may seem small at first, but in the long run, it’ll impact your business positively.

    Better Understanding of Machinery

    When you hire someone to perform an inspection, you can learn a lot about machinery yourself. As we walk you through the inspection processes, you may gather more knowledge and reasons why inspection activities are important.
