Inspection Technologies

Derailments are dangerous, destructive, and costly.

But we can help you prevent them.

 

 

Minute, internal flaws in rail, invisible to the naked eye, can result in sudden, catastrophic failure.

Our rail flaw services detect unseen defects using the most sophisticated technology available, giving you an opportunity to correct them before they turn into a disaster.

 

Nordco offers a variety of rail flaw inspection service options - with your equipment or ours.

Our highly trained staff of Operators, Chief Operators, and Supervisors has extensive rail flaw testing experience. For example, all our Field Supervisors have a minimum of 15 years of rail flaw detection experience.

With our rail flaw inspection services, you can expect the following:

  • Operators and Chief Operators received extensive classroom and hands-on training.
  • Trucks are inspected daily and follow monthly preventive maintenance services for both the vehicle and inspection equipment.
  • Supervisors inspect equipment quarterly to ensure calibration and test quality.
  • Test data is reviewed monthly for each Chief Operator. Data is randomly selected and reviewed; audit results are published to the entire team for continuous learning of best practices.

What's included in our services?

  • Rail flaw detection testing using our NRS-195, NRS-260, One Pass, or Flex inspection carriage, which all include the patented XL9-11 wheel probes, essential geometry, digital signal processing, and on-board Run-on-Run software
  • Full crew services, including highly trained operators
  • All necessary testing consumables, such as couplant
  • Full testing data and reports

We're flexible to meet your scheduling needs

With the Nordco rail flaw inspection services, you decide what date and time - even nights and weekends - works best for your schedule. On that date, a Nordco team of skilled operators, the rail flaw inspection vehicle, and all other necessary equipment will arrive at your site - prepped and ready to perform testing. After the testing is complete, the team will give you the analyzed results and leave your track - allowing you to get back on schedule immediately.

Nordco rail flaw inspection services allow you to benefit from the latest flaw detection technology as well as highly skilled operators without the commitment of owning a rail inspection vehicle.

  • Operators receive extensive classroom and hands-on training.
  • Vehicles are inspected daily; vehicles also receive monthly preventive maintenance services.
  • Supervisors inspect equipment quarterly to ensure calibration and test quality.
  • Test data is randomly selected and reviewed monthly for each chief operator.
