Nowadays, environmental issues are an ever-growing concern. With the aim of building a sustainable world, IEP has developed a range of services that allow us to respond not only to legal requirements but also to provide companies with higher standards in their respect for an improved environment.

IEP, therefore, provides environmental consulting services (system implementation, environmental licensing), circular economy consulting, environmental characterization consulting (noise, gas emissions, effluents), equipment and product characterization consulting (energy label, ROHS), among others.

To carry out these services, IEP has a team of qualified technicians at its disposal, as well as the right equipment to allow it to respond effectively to its clients’ needs.

Many of the services offered are carried out by the several accredited laboratories that are part of this institute.

Over the last few decades, we have been part of major safety projects carried out in the business sector as well as in public network infrastructure.

We draft emergency plans and health and safety plans, assess industrial, technological and professional risks, and recommend self-protection measures.

We implement health and safety at work systems and carry out internal audits.

We are also responsible for the organization of external OSH services for national companies in every business sector.

Over the last few decades we have taken social responsibility on as a core value for our organization’s strategy, and we are committed to sharing its importance with our business partners in order to promote ethical and transparent behavior.

Achieving the sustainable development of any organization requires a constant commitment to meeting the needs of the present, but never compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

As such, we help organizations with the development and design of corporate and social responsibility plans that take into account their business sector, maximizing the economic and social impact on organizations.

 >  SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Sensible energy consumption in human activities is of extreme importance since these resources are finite, extremely scarce and unequally distributed. Therefore, it is very important to provide tools to support the decision-making process, that also allows the various economic sectors to effectively manage the energy resources used in their activities.

A test that allows the detection of surface discontinuities in non-porous materials.

By using visible or fluorescent systems that can be removed by water or by solvent, we conduct tests according to European and international standards and also according to client-specific procedures in all areas of metalworking – welding, casting and forging, among others.

 > METALLIC MATERIAL WELDING

> METALLIC MATERIALS

 > FORGED METAL PARTS

A test that detects surface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials. Using different magnetization techniques – Yoke, Permanent Magnet, Coil and Direct Current – and according to recognized standards, we carry out the tests both at our facilities and at the client’s premises.

INDUSTRIAL X-RAY

AJL provides a wide range of x-ray services for a wide range of applications and industries.

Gamma Radiation (Iridium source and Selenium source) and X-Ray equipment (up to 300 kV) are used for welding (piping or pressure equipment), cast or forged.

 > METALLIC MATERIAL WELDING

> METALLIC MATERIALS

 > CAST METALLIC MATERIAL PARTS

Digital X-ray is a form of X-ray imaging where digital sensors are used instead of traditional radiographic film. Some of its advantages include:
– Reduced exposure;
– A smaller safety perimeter;
– No need for films or chemicals associated with traditional image development.

 > METALLIC MATERIAL WELDING

 > METALLIC MATERIALS

Ultrasonic testing can range from basic thickness measurements to large-scale inspections to welding or forged components. Some of the industrial sectors where this kind of testing can be useful are Automotive, Railways, Shipbuilding, Aerospace, Nuclear, Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Thermoelectric.

Visual inspection is the preferred method of non-destructive examination to ensure that the welding process is executed correctly and according to applicable standards. AJL always strives to innovate when it comes to NDT methods. It has a portable three-dimensional laser measurement system at its disposal for the visual inspection of welds. This simplifies the inspection process and ensures the best testing practices.

Induced currents are a conductive material inspection technique to detect surface cracks, pitting, thickness loss and other discontinuities. Some of its advantages include:
– The ability to inspect hard-to-reach places;
– A wide range of applications such as tubular beam inspections of heat exchangers within the fossil fuel and petrochemical industries.

The Phased Array technique is an advanced ultrasonic inspection technique that allows for the detection of internal defects. Phased Arrays produce clear, reliable and precise images in a quick and efficient manner. This technique is seen as a viable alternative to X-rays.

Acoustic Pulse Reflectometry is a technology based on the emission of an acoustic pulse and the reception of the reflected acoustic wave. APR is used to accurately detect blockages (either total or partial), corrosion, erosion, perforations and pittings.

A leak test can be performed using several techniques. European standard EN 1779:1999 sets out 17 techniques, which can be grouped into five categories. Depending on the chosen technique, the test’s sensitivity can vary. The aforementioned standard also defines the limits normally obtained from industrial tests.
