Structural Steel Inspection

Our structural steel inspection technologies are highly portable, which means you can engage our expert services wherever you are.

Structural steel inspections are a key service for building construction and oil & gas services. The details are critical, especially in terms of safety and integrity. At CIC Inspection & Consulting LTD., we provide both field and laboratory testing services with the goal of ensuring that construction materials are safe and reliable. Our inspection services include dimensional inspection, weld procedure development, bolt torquing, non-destructive testing, as well as witnessing tests and auditing quality control programs.

Communication is key to the success of complex projects. CIC's approach to structural steel inspection projects involves building close working relationships between our materials professionals and structural engineers. By joining your team early in the design process, we can help you identify any constraints or weaknesses in your materials selection and welding procedures. It's our goal to help our clients speed up construction while reducing costs.

Non-Destructive Structural Steel Inspection Techniques

The goal of non-destructive testing is to determine the quality of a material without damaging the building or project site. We employ several non-destructive methods to ensure this:


APPLICATION: piping & pipeline welds, HIC & CSS detection, hi-temp weld inspection, corrosion mapping, flange and bolt scanning, SS weld inspection.

Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT) and Time-of-Flight Diffraction (TOFD) have come a long way in recent years. When used together, the two NDT techniques reinforce each other’s strengths increasing the probability of detecting defects and weaknesses within a structural component.

Our small piping solutions start with diameters up to 4.5" using compact scanners that are built for increased productivity. Larger diameters piping/pipeline scanners cover diameters above 4.5".

With our code compliant and automated PAUT technologies, we are well positioned to tackle any project, large or small. We don’t compromise on quality. Our PAUT acquisition units are selected from the best suppliers around the world, delivering speed, repeatable consistency, and unsurpassed accuracy.

2 Shearwave Ultrasonics (Conventional UT)

Our Ultrasonic shear wave tools are widely used in the oil & gas sectors to inspect pipeline welds and for the in-service detection plus characterization of corrosion in pipes, tanks, and vessel. Due to the probe sizes, conventional UT is often the only method that is accessible to an inspector.

3 Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

CUI is any type of corrosion that occurs due to moisture buildup. It is a prevalent problem affecting equipment and structures in many industries, including oil and gas, petrochemical, and related sectors.

CIC provides powerful and portable solutions for your CUI inspection demands, guaranteeing no downtime or costly replacement of insulation. Our fast and reliable CUI inspection services provide you with accurate, real-time C-scan images and fast data acquisition without the costly removal of insulation.

4 Visual Testing

Visual testing is the oldest and most common NDT technique. It requires an experienced touch and eye for detail. From castings and forgings to weld elements, our CSA W172.2 certified technicians will take care of your structural work, while our CWB II technicians can be utilized for all weld inspections.

5 Surface Inspection Techniques

At CIC, we employ a comprehensive range of surface inspection techniques.

  • Liquid Penetrant Inspection
  • Magnetic Particle Inspection
  • Positive Material Inspection
  • Hardness Testing
  • Ferrite Testing

If you are planning a construction project, call CIC Inspection. We can help you with a variety of NDT methods that test structural steel for safety and quality control purposes without damaging it and ruining the final product.
