Chemicals plants- which types are NDT intensive?

Hi,

I am trying to determine which type of chemical process plants are the largest and / or generate large volumes of NDT work.

I am responsible for finding new markets for our Inspection Management / RBI Software. So far we have mainly found users in the Refining industry, where the plants are obviously large-scale, and my knowledge of the Chemicals industry is somewhat limited.

Thanks for any help,
Stephen.

Re: Chemicals plants- which types are NDT intensive?
Any process facility Chemical/Petrochemicals where pressure, temperature and corrosive products occur will tend to use some form of NDT as part of their Asset/Mechanical Integrity program. It may not be as well defined in areas such as RBI as the Refining Industry has led the way on many of the initiatives funded by the Oil & Gas majors. In Europe Chemicals/Petrochemicals has declined in last 20 yaers due to competitive issues. However there is still an extensive customer base its just that many of the names may not be recognisable due to mergers, divestment or rebranding.

Try Chemical Engineer or simply look around many of the major Port Areas, Southampton, Hull, Merseyside, Rotterdam etc. you will soon find them.
