By Jeremiah Wooten, Managing Partner at Inspectioneering. June 24, 2013

Leak related problems in bolted assemblies are an ongoing issue for virtually all facilities in the chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries. From leak detection to leak prevention, operators need knowledgeable and experienced technicians to address these issues before they become a serious problem. Recently, our friend and media partner, Inspectioneering Journal (IJ), sat down with Dave Godfrey of INTEGRA Technologies to see how INTEGRA is addressing these challenges. Dave is currently acting as Operations Manager for the gulf coast region and is responsible for locations in Houston, Louisiana (Gonzales and New Iberia), Mexico, and Trinidad and Tobago. He joined INTEGRA Technologies in 2002 and has 26 years of experience in the field of flange management and leak prevention. Dave will be a speaker at the marcus evans 5th Annual Chem/Petrochem & Refinery Shutdowns and Turnarounds Conference, August 6-8, 2013 in Dallas, TX.
