Ex inspection of Ex equipment integrity

EM&I has been granted a UK patent for Ex inspection of Ex equipment integrity (ExPert™), an innovative technology which assists operators in managing their Hazardous Area (Electrical) Equipment (HAE) integrity.

There are numerous electrical components on oil and gas assets that operate in hazardous areas.

These are safety-critical and need to comply with regulatory and corporate standards, which include the need for inspection of components that require working at height and system isolations.

About the ExPert™ System

The ExPert™ system enables inspection of electrical components without the risks of working at height and the operational disruption of having to isolate systems or dismantle and reassemble components.

Danny Constantinis Executive Chairman at EM&I, said: “I am delighted with the award of this patent which represents many years of experience as leaders in specialised NDT. The benefits include cost reduction, enhanced safety, and reduced POB.”
