An expert is someone who knows some of the worst mistakes that can be made in his field, and how to avoid them.

As vital as experts in engineering and design are, no project can be complete without rigorous, comprehensive inspections to ensure your corrosive processes don't cause undue concern. That’s why Maverick Applied Science employs and trains only inspectors with experience in fiberglass reinforced plastics and dual laminate inspection.
Once detailed specifications and engineering are complete, inspections during fabrication, installation and operation become critical. Quality assurance starts with auditing selected fabrication shops in order to qualify capable vendors and continues with periodic shop inspections or continuous shop surveillance.
Later, field inspections include chimney liners and scrubbers, stacks and large tanks. Maverick inspectors also monitor the installation of piping, shop fabricated tanks, chimney liners and scrubbers, stacks and large tanks.
To ensure peak performance of operating systems, many plants rely on Maverick inspection programs that include visual inspection as well as non-destructive testing (NDT).
