Technical Inspection

Methods of Risk Assessment for Structures

BSP’s technical inspection services comply with its broader objectives in implementing corrosion management systems and gathering data for predictive analysis and damage risk assessment. Given the extensive range of technical inspection techniques, BSP focus is on the following methods:


Magnetic Flux Leakage

The MFL technique belongs to the screening group of inspection methods that enable a qualitative evaluation of the structure. This technique does not produce quantitative inspection data—such as thickness. However, it helps narrowing down the inspection points where the rate of thickness reduction compared to the initial metal thickness exceeds a certain level, and accordingly, accelerating inspection process and preventing the additional costs of examining unaffected areas. BSP offers MFL inspection services for the following structures:

Internal and external surfaces of above-ground storage tanks
Internal and external surfaces of above-ground storage tanks
Internal and external surfaces of pipes and low-access areas by using hand-held scanners
Internal and external surfaces of pipes and low-access areas by using hand-held scanners
Internal walls of pipelines by pigging
Internal walls of pipelines by pigging

Coating Inspection for Buried Pipelines

BSP offers coating inspection services for buried pipelines by DCVG and PCM+ techniques. In both methods, pipelines buried under soil, asphalt, or a river are inspected by following the pipeline route from the top surface.


Cathodic Protection Inspection

BSP’s services regarding standard tests for inspecting cathodic protection systems include:

  • Wenner soil resistivity testing
  • Reference electrode calibration testing
  • Testing for electrical contact between the metal pipe and casing
  • Cathodic current density measurement
  • CIPS testing
  • Pipeline current measurement testing
  • Inspecting and measuring the efficiency of transformer rectifiers
  • Induced alternating current measurement for pipelines
  • Measuring the efficiency of flange insulation kits
  • Stray current detection

Using advanced equipment, BSP provides the above testing services in different stages of the cathodic protection project, namely design, start-up, and maintenance.

Cathodic Protection System Remote Monitoring and Control

Other BSP's services regarding cathodic protection systems include implementing hardware and software systems for remote structure monitoring and control.


These systems are helpful in structures located in distant, difficult-to-reach areas to which dispatching a team for carrying out readings and inspection is challenging. In these cases, additional equipment is used for remote measurement, transmitting and displaying the results, and adjusting potential/current variables. BSP provides design, procurement, installation, start-up, and maintenance services for this purpose.

Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement and Crack Detection

Ultrasonic inspection to determine the metal thickness and detecting surface and internal cracks is a conventional method of evaluating the integrity and function of industrial equipment and parts. Given the extensive applications of this technique in different industries, BSP provides a wide range of services in this regard, including consulting and procurement. Accordingly, the BSP offers a thorough ultrasonic inspection service package.

Structural health monitoring and inspection

With the advancement of engineering sciences in recent years, novel methods are required to conduct building diagnostics for the multitude of old buildings in different industrial, commercial, and residential units. Structural health monitoring (SHM) of buildings based on their intrinsic characteristics is one of the most efficient building diagnostic methods. This method relies on the fact that the intrinsic characteristics of buildings, such as natural frequency, mode shape, and frequency response, remain unchanged over time. Therefore, in case of occurrence of faults in buildings, these characteristics change and can be identified and assessed. Moreover, it should be noted that the intrinsic characteristics of buildings are not dependent on the type and amount of building loads and environmental conditions and, therefore, are unique for each building.

The main advantages of SHM over other diagnosis methods are as follows:

  • Phased Array Ultra-Sonic (PAUT)
  • Time of Flight Diffraction (ToFD)
  • Guided Wave Ultra-Sonic (GWUT)
  • Automated Ultrasonic Crawlers C-Scan.
