Leak detection helps to ensure that system (or system component) integrity can retain any liquid or gas that it needs to store or pass through. Nitrogen helium leak testing is crucial in gas and oil processing systems, especially as processing plants become more complex.
Eliminating hydrocarbon leakage is an operational priority on petrochemical complexes and off shore production platform modules. LTP Solutions use helium trace in nitrogen carrier gas, one of the most accurate and quantifiable (method available).
Nitrogen helium leak testing is a pre-commissioning prerequisite to verify that piping systems and production equipment is safe.
The simplest way to avoid a fire or explosion in a process vessel is to introduce inert (noncombustible) gases in such a way that there is never a mixture with a combustible concentration. Mixtures of fuel, oxygen, and inert gases are not combustible over the entire range of composition. During the service, the air in the environment is effectively made inert with the purging of nitrogen – pushing out anything hazardous, re-stabilising the air and therefore reducing the risk of an explosion/an explosive mixture.
LTP Solutions facilitates the process of controlled tightening and its associated benefits, through the use of specially developed equipment, written procedures and bolt loading calculations, to ensure that joints are tightened in a safe manner. LTP Solutions is an industry leader in flange management techniques, through our on-going investment in reliable equipment and thorough training of all personnel. Our flange management systems provide assurance that all flanges on a process system are detected and completed in such a manner that they minimize or eliminate integrity issues.
Hydrostatic testing is a way to test pipelines and other pressure vessels for structural integrity and strength. Hydrostatic testing exposes defective materials that have previously been undetected. These services provide a final check of quality and operational integrity for clients including oil producers, manufacturers of subsea components, pipeline manufacturers and oil and gas companies. LTP Solutions can perform a hydrostatic test on any size system from an individual spool piece to a full mechanical completed system offshore and onshore.
