Innovative measurement, inspection and corrective solutions

OMS provide services and technology to inspect, measure, visualise, verify and correct asset defects in hard to reach locations such as pipelines, ducts, conduits or hard to reach locations. Potentially problematic conditions such as shape, ovality, wear, dents, protrusions, wrinkling, oxidation, discolouration, corrosion, contamination or erosion can be determined prior to carrying out activities to address the issue. Comprehensive software reporting allows clients to understand measurements and fully assess the extent of defects in order make decisions towards a solution.

OMS looks to utilise its core strengths and provide the key to improved safety, process efficiency and asset integrity, whilst helping to reduce costs and non-productive time. Areas of operational interest are within confined spaces where advanced visual inspection and precision measurement techniques, mapping and corrective solutions such as welding, grinding or repair are required.

Special Offer!

We are giving away a FREE tablet with every HiLo tool sold. This upgrade is available with all new Open Gap and Closed Gap HiLo tool purchases, as well as upgrades to compatible tools. The upgrade eliminates the need for pen and paper methods of recording pipe HiLo measurements.

Open Gap and Closed Gap HiLo tools provide pipeline engineers, weld inspectors and quality control technicians with the ability to measure pipe misalignment prior to fit-up and welding. This capability is an important element in pipeline construction as it improves the fit-up of pipe ends in order to meet project specifications.

OMS is ready for nuclear!

OMS is pleased to announce that the company has achieved Fit For Nuclear (F4N) accreditation.

Developed by Nuclear AMRC with the support of top tier partners including Areva and EDF Energy, the F4N verification process is used by these firms to identify potential suppliers to the nuclear industry.

Organisations are initially required to undertake a Fit For Nuclear Business diagnostic assessment. With an industry average of 72%, achieving a score of 89% is something OMS can be particularly proud of. This accreditation confirms that OMS is ready to bid for work and provide services in the civil nuclear sector.

OMS wins the Queens Award for Enterprise for the second time

Oil and gas pipe measurement specialist Optical Metrology Services (OMS) is proud to announce that it has won the coveted 2014 Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category for its SmartFit™ service, a system for managing pipe preparation and fit-up in readiness for welding prior to pipe laying.

Used in the oil and gas industry, SmartFit™ will ensure the accurate fit-up of pipes prior to welding and pipeline construction, thus preventing environmentally damaging leaks. Whilst innovating this service, OMS developed bespoke laser measuring equipment and methodologies with supporting software, for optimising pipe fit-up. The service reduces costs through faster pipe laying and improves quality by eliminating mismatched pipe ends.

Pipe end measurement and inspection services

In the high stakes world of oil and gas pipelines, where delays and failures can be both disastrous and costly, companies are increasingly striving to mitigate the risks and are turning to the experts, OMS, for help and advice. OMS offer a wide range of pipeline fit-up products and services designed to maximise performance, minimise risk and deliver projects on time. Through a menu of data collection techniques, we are able to define the scale of the challenge our clients face and advise the best course of action.

From our pipe end dimensioning and SmartFit™ service that optimises pipe-to-pipe fit to our internal weld inspection services that confirm girth weld integrity, to our customer driven design solutions, our portfolio of services allow us to tailor proven methodologies in order to gain the best possible results.
