Improving the integrity, reliability and performance of piping systems, structures and rotating equipment.

If vibration, dynamics or noise are impacting your operations, we have more than 200 people across the globe who wake up every day focused on these issues.

We identify and resolve risks in your piping and machine systems, troubleshoot problems and manage noise across your assets’ lifecycle.

Our unrivalled depth and breadth of field and consulting experience has evolved from over 50 years' working globally across many sectors. Our main driver is innovation; we continually look for better, smarter problem-solving techniques to provide accurate results, practical solutions and faster turnaround times for our clients.

Our specialists provide support around four main areas:

Piping and structures

Excessive vibration causes piping fatigue – a significant integrity risk and failure mechanism. We provide a range of services, software and products to support:

Machinery

Compressors, pumps and other rotating assets face reliability, vibration and performance problems, which can be avoided with our design, commissioning, monitoring and troubleshooting support:

Noise management

Noise management is a growing concern due to increasing health, safety and environmental (HSE) and compliance regulations. Clients value our regional presence. We can help you control noise in your designs and respond quickly to deliver site-based troubleshooting and support.

Our noise.AI technology can classify sound emissions in real-time and as accurately as human experts to automate noise assessments and help you optimise performance at noise‑constrained facilities, worksites or infrastructure.

Field engineering and troubleshooting

Our experienced team of field engineers has solved thousands of cases globally and can mobilise quickly to provide specialised troubleshooting, failure analysis, and site support to resolve vibration, reliability and fatigue-related risks.

Our expertise includes vibration, pulsation, stress and noise measurement and analysis of rotating equipment, piping systems and structures. Using our world-class data acquisition systems, proprietary analysis software and global domain experts, we can deliver fast and accurate results to get your operation running smoothly.
