In order to minimize tubular failures, Force Inspection Services offers a variety of services for our client’s specific needs ranging from a basic visual thread and drift inspection, to API Thread Gauging, to a full length Type III Inspection for Transverse and Longitudinal defects and continuous wall monitoring of tube bodies.
Target NDT has experienced inspectors with load testing equipment available up to 100 tons to meet almost any lifting requirement. Our inspectors routinely inspect small baskets and racks, skid mounted units and containers, winches and overhead cranes, or sling sets and shackles.

Inspection of Drill Collars, HWDP and BHA for cracks in threads, upsets and critical radius is imperative. If not inspected regularly fatigue of the material can create a crack in a very short period of time.
Utilizing WetMag (black light) inspection for ferrous (steel) material and LPI (Liquid Penetrant Inspection) for non-ferrous (non-mag) material in conjunction with thread profilegauging, visual seal and thread inspection and dimensional inspection our staff of qualified operators can help to minimize the possibility of a downhole failure.
The service is particularly valuable for hull integrity, drilling rigs. Any parts requiring change-out can be replaced through non-intrusive work. Conventional techniques used include:
· Magnetic particle inspection (MPI)
· Liquid penetrant inspection (LPI)
· Ultrasonic inspection
· Eddy current inspection
The purpose of Inspecting new or used Drill Pipe is to locate and evaluate defects from manufacture (new) and service induced defects from Drilling Operations (used).
