Drill Pipe Inspections
At Turnco, we provide drilling tool and drill pipe inspection services with a focus on downhole assembly equipment. We bring inspection expertise to every job through services that include Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) and Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT) services as well as advanced Ultrasonic Testing (UT) and EMI. Our highly trained and experienced field engineers leverage these technologies to ensure products conform to ASNT specifications, free of imperfections, cracks or damages. Our drill pipe inspections are backed by our innovative B.R.I.T.E. system and D90 quality assurance process.

EMI Drill Pipe Inspections
A mobile inspection method for drill pipe tubes, well loss, and daily damages, electro-magnetic inspections (EMI) offers complete electronic tracking capabilities with magnetic fields. By using the most modern systems, Turnco can identify fatigue cracks, pits, gouges, cuts, corrosion, and other damage that exceed acceptance limits.
Magnetic Particle Testing
A versatile inspection method used for field and shop applications, Magnetic Particle testing (MT) works by magnetizing a ferromagnetic specimen using a magnet or special magnetizing equipment. If the specimen has discontinuity, the magnetic field flowing through the specimen is interrupted and leakage field occurs.
Liquid Penetrant Testing
Liquid penetrant inspection is a method that is used to reveal surface breaking flaws by bleedout of a colored or fluorescent dye from the flaw. The technique is based on the ability of a liquid to be drawn into a “clean” surface breaking flaw by capillary action. Turnco certified inspectors perform liquid penetrant testing following the highest standards of quality.
A fast, precise and cost-effective inspection method, Ultrasonic Testing uses high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements. Turnco’s highly-trained staff of certified ultrasonic inspectors leverage advanced Ultrasonic Testing (UT) for flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization, and more.
