TCR wins Third Party Inspection Project of Rigid Perlite Insulation products of Perma-Pipe Middle East

TCR Engineering Services in India has been awarded a repeat second order to perform third party inspection for Rigid Perlite Insulation products of Perma-Pipe Middle East (FZE) at their vendor locations in India. The inspection involves complete third party inspection of Perlite in accordance with ASTM C610. The inspectors from TCR will undertake visual inspection with dimensional measurements. During manufacturing, the inspectors will check the process for conformity and any process non-conformities shall be reported. When the Client's vendor in India does perform any tests like density, compressive or thermal conductivity, the inspector from TCR will witness the tests and will countersign the reports. TCR representative will check the conformance by joining two seams together so that minimum gap as per ASTM C 610 is followed. Due the fragile nature of Perlite, TCR inspectors will ensure that there are not be any cracks at the circumferential seam that will go up to the root, however minor edge cracks may be accepted. Surface cracks at the circumferential seam will be accepted upon repair of the seam as per the manufacturer's repair procedure.

A six member team from TCR will work round the clock at vendor locations in India to ensure strong In-process Inspections.

Perma-Pipe is manufacturing based on an order to perform the factory insulating and jacketing services for a 600 KM long 24 inch diameter heavy crude oil pipeline. TCR is conducting third party inspection services at the Perma-Pipe facility which is located in Mundra, India on the premises of Jindal Saw Ltd. Jindal, one of India's largest steel pipe producers, will manufacture and fabricate the pipe for the project. The value of Jindal's contract is in excess of $200,000,000 USD. The insulation and jacketing work, included in Jindal's contract, has a total value of approximately $60,000,000, which includes the value of the insulation materials to be procured by Jindal as well as other services to be provided by Perma-Pipe.

The pipeline will be owned by Cairn Energy India Ltd. in partnership with Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), a Government of India entity. The pipeline will be used to transport heavy crude oil from their oil fields in Mangala in North West India to a terminal in Salaya, a distance of approximately 600 kilometers (375 miles). Since the heavy crude oil is essentially solid at ambient temperature, the pipeline must be insulated and electrically heated to assure oil flow.

TCR's independent, third-party quality assurance services results in improved product quality, with a reduction in customer complaints, noncompliance and product recalls.
The on-site inspection team covers all the states across India. The pricing structure for the on-site inspection services is set competitively and is based on man-day charges.

TCR's Third Party Inspection Services also include:- Factory Audit- OEM and Product Development and Monitoring- Welding Certification and Welder Qualification- Picking of Samples and Testing Coordination- Initial Production Check- In-Production Check- Random Inspection- Loading Supervision.

All inspection will be carried out as per P.O. / Drawing/ approved QAP/ Stipulated National and International standards / specification. Any mandatory testing stipulated in P.O./ QAP shall be carried out and testing charges, if any, shall be to Purchaser / Vendor account. In case of any technical dispute the final approved document from Client / Purchaser shall prevail.
