Pressure Vessel INSPECTION

Health and Safety Act (OHSA) requirements call for regular testing of pressure vessel safety. Pressure vessel inspection requirements include using a professional certified and approved by SANAS for vessel testing. We are:

  • SANAS certified;
  • SANS 347 compliant;
  • SAQCC certified;
  • Accredited IPEs;

Pressure Vessel


We are able to provide assistance with all aspects of in-service vessel inspections, ensuring full legal compliance with OHSA requirements. The full process includes:

  • Preparation of the Vessel;
  • The pressure test;
  • Certification;
  • The management of vessels for the larger industry users;
Procedure Details


Although pressure vessels are tested in manufacturing facilities before they are put to work, internal and external corrosion over time can lead to dangerous explosions. As a result, the OHSA requires in-service inspection of pressure vessels by a SANAS certified individual at least every 36 months.

  • Keep your staff and facilities safe;
  • Be prepared for DOL workplace safety inspections;
  • Comply fully with legal requirements including record-keeping

Witness the power of pressure

This video demonstrates the shocking consequences of a small domestic pressure vessel explosion. In the industrial context, the risk of injury from such an explosion is magnified many times over.

In-service inspections will not have a significant impact on business operations, since the pressure vessel inspection procedure is carried out at your premises. Although the SANAS vessel testing regulations are relatively new, we have over 35 years of experience with pressure vessels.
Explosion Time: 1min 30sec

Services To Help You

As fully certified and accredited pressure vessel inspection professionals, the following items fall outside the scope of our work. However, as a service to our clients, and at no extra cost, we will gladly refer you to third-party companies with a proven track-record. From our first-hand experience of these firms, we can recommend their services with confidence. This helps both FESA and its clients to complete inspections as smoothly and quickly as possible.

Vessel Preparation

Preparing pressure vessels for inspection requires a specific procedure. Although larger concerns have the necessary qualified staff, many smaller concerns are unable to perform their own vessel preparation procedures. Our associates can help.

Nondestructive Testing

This form of testing is only required if our visual and ultrasonic thickness tests show a need for a more in-depth inspection. NDT specialists utilize a range of extremely high-tech equipment to confirm whether your pressure vessel is safe. Our associates can assist with NDT.

Deregulated Vessels

A deregulated vessel need not always be scrapped. Modifications can be made or the safe limits of the worn vessel can be determined, but this would be subject to approval by an Approved Inspection Authority. We are in contact with the professionals you need.
