Have you ever heard anyone refer to an “incident” and curiosity is immediately sparked in your mind? It is no wonder; the term itself implies a serious event that caused harm, damage or change and is typically something you want to avoid at all costs. Especially in Power and Petrochemical Industries. The equipment in these industrial facilities is many times exposed to harsh operating environments involving high temperature and pressure, elevated levels of stress and fatigue, and chemically corrosive compounds. If not routinely monitored for their safety and integrity, an “incident” could ensue. It is this manner in which Thielsch Engineering open it is doors for business over 30 years ago.
