The National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) specifies that pressure vessels shall be inspected at 1/2 of the remaining vessel life, or 10 years, whichever is less. We offer a service which gives you the information you need to take necessary action.
Due to the potential hazards associated with a weakened pressure vessel, there are specific intervals and methods used for monitoring the vessel’s health.
The National Board Inspection Code (NBIC) specifies that pressure vessels shall be inspected at 1/2 of the remaining vessel life, or 10 years, whichever is less. Whenever the remaining life is less than 4 years, the inspection interval may be the full remaining life, up to a maximum of 2 years. The inspection interval will be established by the inspector based on vessel condition and corrosion rates found during the first and consecutive inspections.
