Discover Gates Inspection, Maintenance & Re-Certification Services
In harsh environments such as oil drilling, Inspection, Maintenance & Re-Certification (IMR) Services are critical to maximizing asset life, reliability, and uptime. Gates IMR Services provide periodic inspection and thorough testing of a customer’s drilling and service hoses, making sure the critical hose assembly meets both regulatory standards and certifications.
IMR includes a visual inspection through an endoscopic hose analysis, a thorough cleaning of the hose—both internally and externally—as well as a pass/fail rating at every stage. Gates then performs hose maintenance, makes replacement recommendations, and runs a hydrostatic test to ensure the integrity of the hose meets the demands of flexible pipe or hose assembly application. Gates IMR is an essential component to any successful equipment maintenance program.
