Our inspectors insure that all necessary inspections are performed when they should be. As part of there in house training here at PPIT, we help to provide our inspectors with the proper knowledge they need to do the job correctly. Not just that a task should be done. But when and how these critical inspections should be performed so they are the most efficient and effective.
A large number of our inspectors are certified and knowledgable in several areas and methods of inspection. That is something we strongly encourage here at Pinpoint. If a multi certified inspector will suit your project more efficently, please contact us now so we can begin introducing you to some of the best there are in the industry.
An inspector is only as good as the tools and instruments that he uses. PPIT inspectors only use top of the line tools and equipment which are regularly inspected, calibrated and kept in good working order. Tool & Instrument condition checklists, maintenance logs, etc.... are sent in to the PPIT office regularly. They are kept on record and available upon request.

When your project calls for some minor coating activities that are not critical enough to justify having a fully certified coating inspector on site, we have the solution. Pinpoint Pipeline Inspection & Testing has several inspectors with a strong basic knowledge and background of coating applications. Many of which, have attended training courses on coatings and are working towards obtaining their coating certification.
We supply NACE certified Coating Inspectors - Please let us know if your project requires a certified coating professional. We will gladly provide you with a level I, level II and/or level III NACE Certified Coating Inspector/s in order to insure you that no matter what type of coating is being used you know it is being applied in accordance with the latest NACE procedures and specifications.
In addition to obtaining and thoroughly back checking resumes from our potential employees, all of our inspectors are tested prior to being presented to our clients for placement. Pinpoint Pipeline Inspection & Testing has devised an extremely effective In-House testing program comprised from questions we obtained from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable inspectors in the industry. Each inspector is tested only on the experience listed on their resumes.
If your next project is one that will merely consist of an occasional welding activity being performed and does not justify the expense of keeping an AWS CWI on site full time then please consider using one of our CPWI's instead. Due to our In-House "Experience Verification" testing, I can assure you that any CPWI working for us has proven that they possess the basic welding inspection experience and training needed to properly observe and guarantee the quality of the work being performed.
When a AWS CWI is required or desired we will certainly accomidate the request. We have a list of very knowledgable Certified Welding Inspectors with the knowledge and skills to get the job done.We have tested and verified all of our CWI 's to insure that they possess the knowledge and experience to hold the title. Reading and understanding prints, P&ID's., verifying weld maps with HT#'s etc.
Here at PPIT, we utilize our AWS-CWI's in more ways than one. Welder certifications is another of a long list of services we gladly provide. Please contact us for more details.
When it comes to pipeline related projects, utility inspectors are the most accommodating inspector there is and PPIT has some of the best and most experienced of any in the industry today.
From dike wall projects, painting and coating jobs, on to line purges, cut outs and anomaly digs, Utility inspectors can handle it all. We have a wide range of expertise covering many different areas of projects throughout our group of Utility Inspectors. These inspectors have proven thierselves time & time again showing without a doubt that Pinpoint has the right inspector for any job.
If your project requires the best of the best, then look no further. Pinpoint's Senior Utility II inspectors are all highly experienced veterans in there field. Here at PPIT, an inspector is not granted that title without at least 10 years of proven experience in their particular area of expertise along with obtaining and keeping the API 1169 "Certified Pipeline Inspector" certification.
In the event that there is not a pre-determined inspection plan put in place, Pinpoint can aid in the construction & scheduling of one for your project.We can help establish a hold point system of pre-determined inspection visits that will span the duration of the fabrication process. These points will be at the most critical stages of construction of the product or products.
We have found that one of these critical stages is when the materials are delivered. PPIT inspectors will inspect the materials upon delivery to insure that they are of the proper grade and point of origin. Our Vendor Inspectors are trained to be extremely proficient yet mindful in order to catch any damaged or noncompliant materials prior to them being used.
Once a hold point schedule has been established by the inspectors, these extensive inspections will beconducted in order to help the vendor catch any mistakes that could cause a delay in the production of the unit or units. This will help to insure any deadlines are met and save the vendor money by avoiding having to make alterations mid production.
Once the unit has undergone its final inspection and shipped, if required, our inspector will travel to the in field site and evaluate the installation of the unit to insure that there is no damage caused by the installation and to provide the final report.
Even if you do not utilize PPIT's full Vendor Inspection program, if you require or desire third party verification, please contact us and give us the information of what you are needing and we will provide the right inspector for the job. Our inspectors are available and experienced enough to be able to provide third party verification of any aspects or activities required.
If problems arise mid production in your project and the farication process is not going as well as it looked on paper, please give Pinpoint a call and let us help troubleshoot the problem. Even if you have been utilizing the services of a different inspection company, we want to offer our help if needed. Our inspectors are true professionals that know how important it is that equipment, especially in our industry, be built correctly and want to help any way we can.
