MES is a ONE STOP SHOP TO SATISFY PHMSA MEGA RULE REQUIREMENTS
Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) Mega-Rule (Part 1)49 CFR 192.624 mandates the requirement to create and maintain traceable, verifiable, and complete records to substantiate a pipeline’s MAOP. The most direct way to satisfy this requirement is through sample extractions for laboratory testing.
MES provides the test experience and laboratory capability to quickly process batch samples for wall thickness, chemistry, seam type, mechanical properties, and microstructure. Rapid reporting of test data provides API grade assignment. We can help operators define sampling programs and perform destructive (laboratory) or non-destructive testing to capture this information to achieve a confidence level of 95% per line.
THE METALLURGICAL ENGINEERING SERVICES DIFFERENCE
Our team of metallurgist, machinist, and test technicians have conducted pipeline materials testing for decades. Our laboratory is geared for batch processing of sample coupons to quickly and efficiently get the data you need. Our experience and history in metallurgy, weld inspection, failure analysis, and NDE make MES a one-stop-shop to meet PHMSA Mega Rule requirements.
