Inspections: Extend The Life Of An Asset, Prevent Loss Of Revenue And Reputation

Certainly no one wants to spend their time thinking about corrosion control, but not thinking about a problem doesn’t make it disappear. Corrosion, like termites, will destroy an asset if ignored. To ensure you have corrosion under control, you need corrosion control surveying experts who know what to look for and where to find it.

FeO inspectors take the health of your asset or facility as seriously as you do. But don’t take our word for it — as an SSPC QP5-certified coatings inspection company, we’ve achieved the platinum standard in the coatings protection industry, demonstrating our commitment to quality and reliability.

The QP5 certification is hard to get and even harder to keep — there are currently only 15 SSPC QP5-certified companies in the world. That means the capability of FeO’s inspectors has been measured based on the highest standards of quality assurance and reliability in the industry. Strip away the jargon and that means FeO supplies only inspectors that you can trust to work diligently towards extending the life of your equipment.

But why would you need a coatings inspector in the first place? The coating on your asset is much like the foundation of your home — if the coating fails, the whole asset can cease to work as intended. A coatings inspection conducted by an experienced professional third-party inspector will be able to assess the health of your protective coating system during its service life.

Identifying small coatings problems before they turn into huge, work-stopping ones is paramount. Not only does it help avoid downtime, it is critical to keeping your clients satisfied. Inspectors can also provide guidance for regularly scheduled maintenance activities that can keep your asset in its prime and increase its longevity.

Thinking about corrosion control after the fact can mean millions of dollars in lost revenue and asset damage. Compare that with the cost of hiring a third-party inspector, and it becomes obvious that a proactive approach is the most prudent course of action financially. Regular surveys can identify corrosion right at the start — before it leads to asset degradation and failure.

Of course, no coating system lasts forever. So when you need to replace your coating system, having a trustworthy, objective third-party coatings inspector on hand ensures the coating is applied right the first time — both extending the life of your coating and making sure no ‘short cuts’ were taken by the coating applicators.

Achieve peace of mind in the fight against corrosion. Take the steps to ensure your coatings are still as effective at battling corrosion as the day you had them applied with an FeO coatings inspection.
