A specialized department carries out the Failure Analysis job, that includes the study and investigation, evaluation and opinion regarding the cause of the breakage, equipment, or analysed object.
These specialized assignments include electrical or mechanical analysis, though the mechanical ones are more common, emphasizing the ones related to breakage or cracking.
GIS receive support from high-level renowned laboratories and entities in order to complement with testing in environments such as metallurgy in general, and metallography in particular.
Senior profile, with audit and inspector training, and fabrication experience, are selected in order to offer Supplier Evaluation jobs.
The main scope is to evaluate if the supplier was able to manufacturer in time and shape, complying with the quality standards, safety and environmental requirements.
The evaluation is usually carried out in new or unknown manufacturers, or when the materials are complex and/or have short deadlines.
As an example, we could indicate the manufacture of special electrical transformer, cryogenic valves, and special forge among others.
These controls can objectively help to verify the solvency and capacity the supplier has, and foreseen possible issues, which would have a more elevated cost resulting from the penalties due to delays or the necessity to substitute or repair the manufactured components.
Not only the quality and production system is evaluated, but also the following issues are being investigated: incoming orders from third parties to production that could signify a delay, personnel qualification, machinery verification, spaces and available equipment, among others.
As per client’s petition, we expedite supplier in order to verify the following:
Storage Tanks and Tubes for Oil and Oil Products.
We have certified inspectors for Tank inspections following API 650 Standards (construction) and API 653 (repair)
We also have certified inspector for tubes inspection, following API 570 Standrads.
We have certified inspectors for metal structure inspection following AWS D1.1 Standards or UNE-14618 (ICS-2) related with EN-1090 code (CE Marking for metal structure)
Corrosion and Coating
We have NACE certified inspectors levels 2 and 3 for corrosion protection systems certification.
This type of inspection request increases and GIS has a specific department that manages and is in charge of informing the inspector of the company’s procedures.
Starting with supplier and sub-suppliers activation in different areas to expediting large suppliers of structures, tubes or static equipment, spot inspections or with a defined period of time, this service is essential in most of the orders.
Equipment marking assessment (CE, ASME), API inspections, material testing, norm assessment for certification (ISO, 3834, EN 15085, EN1090), others.
