Engineered Certification and Inspection (ECI) is the re-inspection and certification of equipment to ensure compliance with the manufacturer’s design and operating ratings. At Red Flame Industries Inc, our NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) inspectors perform a thorough inspection of your equipment’s structural welds, pivots, hydraulic mounts, and lifting arms to ensure no dents, cracks, bends, or capacity-altering damages have occurred. Inspections are completed using various techniques of magnetic particle (crack) inspections, visual techniques, and spacing measurements.

We have in-house engineering, certified NDT technicians, and an online portal for customers to access copies of their equipment certifications. ECI inspections are completed quickly and thoroughly. If repairs are required, we are able to provide a proper repair plan and re-inspection. Reports and certification stickers are provided following the inspection to ensure your work can continue moving forward.
