CIA Inspection (CIAI) is the premiere coke drum inspection service in the world and the only firm completely dedicated to the inspection of coke drums. Since 1993, CIAI has performed nearly 1000 site inspections of coke drums of all sizes and metallurgy. CIAI continually upgrades its technology and services to assist refineries in monitoring their valuable coke drum assets using custom solutions designed by our in house engineering group.
CIAI conducts both on-line and off-line internal inspections of coke drums using a laser range camera, video and robotic crawler systems. CIAI’s knowledge of the industry gives us the ability to compare drums with industry wide trends allowing operators to gauge how their drums compare to other drums at other sites. CIAI’s customized software allows the user to see the bulge growth in the drum over time and focus on the failure prone areas.
CIAI is dedicated to providing refiners with the right tools to make decisions on drum repair or replacement. As such, we work with other industry leaders including Stress Engineering, Foster Wheeler, Fluor Daniel and Chicago Bridge & Iron to provide a combined approach to help improve the life of the coke drum.
CIAI offers a suite of dedicated technology solutions to enhance the refiner’s knowledge including:
- Laser Profile.
- Remote Video.
- Robotic Crack Detection.
From this information, refiners can implement a proactive maintenance plan to improve the reliability and life of their coke drums. Working with the refiner, CIAI provides the best quality service for coke drum reliability.
