If you own or operate an industrial facility, then you are probably at the mercy of the industrial pipes that are installed in it. Those pipes are, in many ways, the lifeblood of your entire facility. If they don’t do their job, it could shut down your operation and force you to do the necessary repairs. Therefore, it’s important for you to do the proper testing of industrial pipes. Here are few other reasons why:
It will keep your facility safe.
This is easily the No. 1 reason to test industrial piping. If you don’t do it, it could lead to an unsafe work environment for you and your employees. Pipe failure can be extremely dangerous, and it could potentially lead to injuries and even death. If you don’t do it for any other reason, conduct industrial pipe testing to ensure your facility is safe.
It will keep your facility up to code.
There are many different rules and regulations you need to follow when installing and using industrial pipes. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration lays out a long list of regulations for you. To make sure you are in compliance with them, industrial pipe testing must be done regularly.
It will save your facility money.
In the event that your industrial pipes fail, you could lose thousands of dollars’ worth of product. You could also be forced to undergo a costly cleanup. This will obviously cost your company a lot of money and make you wish you had done better industrial pipe testing at the beginning. While testing will come at a small cost, it will be nothing compared to what you have to deal with following pipe failure.
