LeakSeek™ is a sensitive and versatile acoustic leak detection process that can detect leaks at low pressure throughout all phases of plant operation, from new construction to full service. Our trained and experienced technicians use highly sensitive acoustic devices to locate leaks in the presence of any compressed air or gas system. Technician using LeakSeek
Hydrostatic Testing: Overview, Functioning, and Benefits What is hydrostatic testing? Hydrostatic Testing is a pressure-based assessment method used to test the structural integrity of vessels that hold and/or transport fluid or gas. Hydrostatic Testing detects leaks in a variety of objects, including industrial piping systems, gas cylinders, plumbing, boilers, and storage tanks. How does Hydrostatic
What is LDAR? Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) is the process by which oil and gas, chemical, and/or petrochemical equipment is monitored for the location and volume of unintended leaks. LDAR requires manufacturing organizations to account for volatile organic compounds (VOC) they emit into the atmosphere. These leaks must be reported on an annual or
Leak-Free Assemblies: Control the Process Part III In case you missed it, here are Part I and Part II of our Control the Process series. Many factors can cause your process to break down, reducing your ability to prevent leaks. Our experts have identified some more common factors that inhibit a well-controlled flange assembly process.
Leak-Free Assemblies: Control the Process Part II In case you missed it, here’s Part I of our Control the Process series. A variety of factors can inhibit our ability to create sufficient, uniform pressure that is sustained throughout the duration of plant operation. A proper flange seal process addresses each of these factors. FLANGE SEAL
Leak-Free Assemblies: Control the Process Part I Part I Leaks are preventable. Flanges are designed not to leak, and when sealed properly they live up to their design. And yet, leaks happen. When we’re lucky, they are small and emit harmless substances. When our luck runs out, leaks are catastrophic. So then how do we

Leak-Free Start-Ups : Process & Pitfalls Bolted joint assemblies are dynamic systems, and a variety of factors can impact their sealing capacity. In this article, we review the process involved in developing leak-free start-ups, common pitfalls that we see out in the field, and how INTEGRA can help eliminate leaks in your bolted joint assemblies.
Certainty of Outcome We work in a multi-billion-dollar industry where the consequences of failure extend far beyond the economic. Unexpected challenges arise at inopportune times, with consequences ranging from inconvenient to dangerous. At best, these challenges cause project creep and loss of revenue. At worst, they threaten the personal and environmental safety of our workers,
Avoiding the Galling Roadblock Need a surefire way to speed-up breakouts, increase worker safety, and finish your turnaround on schedule and under budget? Then you need to eliminate galling. If you’ve ever run a breakout, you’ve dealt with galling. It’s an industry-wide problem that happens so often it’s scheduled into even your biggest turnarounds. On
