DNV GL issues PAUT service supplier scheme approval to Axess Group

Axess-Inspectors

Axess Group is thrilled to announce the landmark accreditation of DNV GL to our Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) procedure for the inspection of pins and shafts. This achievement gives our clients the security and confidence that our PAUT service meets globally approved standards.

As part of asset integrity management program, this non-destructive testing (NDT) method allows us to detect the crack indications in pins and shafts without the need to remove the items. This saves the client a lot of time, resources and unnecessary costs compared to the conventional method where every tool is dismantled prior to NDT inspection. 

Axess have used PAUT heavily during Special Period Surveys (SPS) to reduce the time needed for inspection and increase safety. Without the need to pull crane foot pins and the shafts found in sheaves and winches, the complex lifting tasks are reduced.

Due to the comprehensive inspections skills required for the task, Axess Group puts all their PAUT inspectors under intensive training courses prior to approving them in this method.
