An effective mechanical integrity program will help you avoid the potential for catastrophic consequences and financial loss by detecting problems with your process equipment well before they occur. Federal regulations require that process equipment be properly managed in an effort to prevent or reduce the consequences of accidental releases.

At McDowell Safety & Health Services, we know that your business depends on the reliability of your equipment. We have the proven ability and experience to develop an effective mechanical integrity program that will protect your equipment and assets and comply with OSHA and EPA standards.

Robotic Inspections & Cleaning

ROV Tank Inspection

We specialize in Robotic Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) technology that is designed to perform inspections, non-destructive testing and cleaning while the containment remains full and in-service. Our approach is to perform a detailed ROV inspection to determine if additional services are required, such as sedimentation removal or repairs. The ROV also provides visual inspection of the inside of the tank (the sump, floor plates and the base shell) that is recorded and included with our report.
