NDT inspection services - Tanks Pipes and Vessels

In support of Silverwing’s advanced product development we operate a specialist NDT inspection team concentrating on corrosion detection and sizing the above ground storage tanks (AST) and pipelines market within the Petro-Chemical industry.

Our inspection division includes API 653 certified inspectors and EEMUA 159 certified tank integrity assessors providing the complete NDT inspection solution. This team can work directly for asset owners, but we also supply specialist skills via existing inspection service or maintenance companies, enhancing their capability and helping to develop their in-house teams.

To compliment the Inspection Services, Silverwing is able to offer full engineering assessment of tankage to meet the guidelines laid down by EEMUA 159 and API 653 including "fitness for purpose" and inspection scheduling reports within the UK and UAE. Our personnel employ best working practices with safety a top priority. Preparation and execution of site-specific health and safety plans coupled with detailed inspection procedures ensure Silverwing meets Health & Safety and International inspection specification requirements.

NDT Inspection Techniques and Equipment


Floormap3D MFL floor scanner with STARS technology to provide discrimination between top and bottom surface defects


The FloormapVS2i floor scanner is a computerised MFL tank bottom scanner designed to detect and size underfloor corrosion for above ground storage tanks.


The MFL 2000 is a high speed, motorised magnetic flux leakage corrosion detection scanner capable of inspecting approximately 8000 square feet per shift.


The Handscan MFL corrosion detection mini scanner is designed to compliment the, MFL 2000 and FloormapVS2i floorscanners.

Vacuum Box

The V600 range of vacuum boxes is designed for weld leak detection in flat floor plate for both new build inspection and in-service inspection.

Ultrasonic Testing

Silverwing personnel use a range of traditional irrigated and dry coupled UT inspection systems to suit specific requirements


Magnetic particle inspection (MPI) is used for the detection of surface and near-surface flaws in ferromagnetic materials, to inspect a variety of product forms such as castings, forgings, and weldments.
