I am currently a Quality Control Inspector at Cust-o-Fab where we build Heat
Exchangers, Pressure Vessels, Air Cool coil sections, and do lots of rework during shut down periods at refineries. We build our products to meet ASME section 1, 2, 5, 8,and 9 and TEMA standards and API 660. Also our products comply with customer’s specifications by following blue prints. Cust-o-Fab is a fast pace shop that sets ourselves above the rest by being the fastest, safest and most dependable shop around. My job consist of but not limited to checking material, layouts, fit ups, final dimensions, clean up, paint, hydros, and machined parts. I also take brinells, UT thicknesses, check Penetrant tests, make Mag particle checks on parts, visually check welds, interpret x-rays, make ferrite checks, and more. I document everything in our drawings, and inform the outside inspectors and the authorized inspector of our progress and schedule trips for the A.I. when we need them. I also help out with anything I can to help production move smoothly and make our deadlines.

I worked as a night shift Quality Control Inspector building heat exchangers by following blue prints that are made by using codes from ASME section 1,2,5,8, and 9, API 660, TEMA specifications, and customer specifications. I monitor the projects from start to finish insuring that top quality is met and the customers will be satisfied. By getting heat numbers, weld stamps, by checking layout, fit up and final dimension checks. I Magnetic particle check (wet and dry), I also Penetrant test units, visual exam the internal and external of the unit, marking them for fills, blends, and welds, or repairs needed due to miss measuring. I also perform UT thickness, ferrite checks, BHN’s, roll charts, and some RT interpretations. I check bundle skeletons for heat numbers, dimensions, layout of tube holes, layout of pass plate grooves, and overall cleanliness of the welds on the baffles, skid bars, seal bars, and dummy tubes. Then I check rolled tubes or dye check welded tubes before and after roll. Also air soap test the tube welds before roll. After this and final clean up is done I check hydro’s on tube side and shell side then bubble test them. I coordinate with outside inspectors and the authorized inspector when they are there to get things checked and to answer any questions. I also perform several other tasks when the job notes require me to but this mostly is what I do in a regular week. I also stamp nameplates for the units before they go to assembly. After every task I document my work on the drawing and on the Inspection Surveillance Plan sheets so that the day inspector and the QC manager know where we are at at all times.
