CVIP In-House Fabrication Process


 Engineering and Design:
Through existing agreements and partnerships, CVIP utilizes local services with specific expertise in order to minimize our total cost offering and to maximize the level of available experience that is necessary for your particular need, thus offering the most flexible and cost effective approach.

Material Forming, Machining and Finishing:
Efficient use of local facilities allows CVIP to meet virtually all types of rolling, forming, machining and finishing of most specialized shapes or configurations. CVIP has a fully compliant OSHA sandblasting and painting facility along with experienced personnel who can provide mechanically polished surface finishes to 32Ra microinches or better.

Quality Control, Testing
Quality systems meet American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Section VIII, Division 1 standards for pressure vessels. CVIP maintains current "U", "R" and "UM" stamps and the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) certificate for re-certification of over-the-road pressure containing vessels. Qualified technicians perform a broad range of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) services that include dye penetrant, magnetic particle, ultrasonic, helium leak detection to 1 x 10-9 std cc/sec, hydrostatic to 10,000 psig, radiographic examination, positive material identification and precise laser measurement and alignment verifications.

Existing CVIP procedures are reviewed for customer compliance or new procedures are established that specifically meet the job requirement specifications. Areas addressed are internal and external surface preparations, acceptable cleaning fluids, visual inspection points, white cloth and black light examination, particle or moisture verification testing and proper sealing to prevent further contamination.

Instrumentation, Electrical and Mechanical Insulation:
Utilization of individuals specializing in instrument and control system integration design, selection and specification generations, wiring or control panel layouts, full panel assembly and wire routing from all instrument devices to common panel(s), heat tracing, wiring continuity checks or instrument function testing. CVIP also has in-house personnel experienced in installing most types of mechanical insulation systems for either hot or cold applications.

Field Support / Installation Services
CVIP maintains a fully equipped service rig consisting of one dual cab truck and trailer that is utilized for most types of site installations, repairs or start-up assistance. Please contact CVIP for your specific needs.



CVIP has partnered with the engineering and design firm PMC Engineering Solutions Inc. who has developed patented pressure boundary repair components for both existing process piping and ASME pressure vessels. Complete repair packages include pre-formed and machined materials, partial data reports, shop fabrication drawings, material test reports and certified calculations. This on-site repair alternative has already received approvals from the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors (NBIC) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). - read the paper
