A complete visual of the inside bores of all flowline equipment; all end connections, seal surfaces, and other surfaces for wear and damage.

Ultrasonic Wall Thickness Measurements:

Wall thickness measurements are taken at multiple locations on each piece of equipment to check for erosion and to verify acceptable minimum wall thickness.

Magnetic Particle:

Magnetic Particle test is performed by electrically inducing a magnetic field in a component and than applying particles in a wet format. The magnetic field causes the particles to align over the surface of the component along the lines of magnetism. Any indications of cracks will show as a fine line. All MPI inspection is done with a qualified CGSB Inspector.

Hydrostatic Pressure Test:

All equipment is pressure tested to its maximum working pressure and documented on a chart. As of June, 2007, all Quincie charts are digitally generated, resulting in a cleaner chart than the circular charts. All pressure testing is done in a solid steel enclosure to ensure the safety of staff and equipment.

Identification and Banding:

All equipment will be identified with stainless steel bands with Serial Number and Pressure Rating.


Quincie has the qualified staff available to make any and all repairs, as required, to ensure that upon completion of inspection, all equipment is ready to go back into service.
