Inspections

KAR-Lehtonen offers its customers all inspection services for ADR equipment. We provide inspections and safety checks for the equipment, as well as pressure tests and calibrations of measuring instruments required by the authorities, carried out in conjunction with official inspection bodies. As a manufacturer of tanks and fluid control systems, our inspection activities are based on deep expertise, and we are fully familiar with the technology of the equipment.

The customers of our inspection activities are the process industries, transport companies, and authorities, as well as all parties that use tanks or piping in their operations. We are well acquainted with the Nordic and Baltic regulations, so we also offer inspections for international operators.

Why regular inspections?

The regular inspection of the equipment offers many benefits, of which improved operational reliability and reduced downtime are essential for a business. We make a vehicle-specific report on each inspection so that the entrepreneur maintains a realistic picture of the condition of their equipment, and no surprises occur.

The inspections also ensure that the equipment is working more safely, as worn parts or leaky seals can be detected before they cause damage. Regular inspection and maintenance also significantly extend the service life of the equipment, preventing minor defects from developing into greater damage.

Full-service inspection and additional services turnkey

We offer our customers a worry-free maintenance service where the equipment is inspected and maintained by us when it best suits the customer. For example, equipment used for bitumen transport is typically inspected during the quieter winter season. For example, equipment used for bitumen transport is typically inspected during the quieter winter season. This is also cost-effective and keeps downtime to a minimum.

We also provide other supplementary services for the equipment, such as washing, inspection, and maintenance services. If necessary, after the tank maintenance, we will deliver the equipment to the truck manufacturer for vehicle maintenance and take care of the periodic inspection of the equipment. We want to be an easy and serviceable partner, so the customer can get all the services they need from us for their tanker truck from one phone number.

We carry out the inspections quickly – always in one day. We also promise that the equipment will always be repaired by us if the customer wishes. In this case, we will also take all necessary measures for the equipment to pass any pressure test.

Practice has shown that when a customer has us perform the inspection and maintenance, there is a 90% certainty the equipment will not need to be serviced before the next annual inspection.

Service that comes directly to the customer – an easy overall solution for operators outside of Finland

We carry out inspections and maintenance both at our own premises in Lieto and as a service that can travel directly to the customer’s premises. This allows us to ensure an easy process for the customer, as well as a speedy return of the equipment back into use.

For companies outside of Finland, we offer an easy and comprehensive service solution, at competitive prices. The customer only needs to deliver the equipment to the ship at the port and we will take care of the rest.

We pick up the vehicle from the port and bring it to our own premises in Lieto. We then inspect, maintain, and repair the equipment and take care of the measures to return it. The repaired equipment will be delivered to the ship and will be back in use soon. Turnkey.

If desired, the customer can outsource the maintenance of all their equipment to us. In this case, we take care of regular inspections and maintenance and correct any deficiencies in the equipment. We also provide other supplementary services, such as equipment washing and periodic inspections. We also take care of regular service calls and remind you of statutory testing. Easy and carefree.

Aarni Isotalo, Kuljetusliike Aarni Isotalo Oy

Kokemukseni on erittäin positiivinen KAR-Lehtosen toiminnasta. Kehitimme yrityksellemme uutta toimintaa ja siihen liittyen tilasin KAR-Lehtoselta alipaine/-imusäiliön ja meillä ei ole aiempaa kokemusta kyseisenlaisesta säiliöstä. Saimme yhteistyössä toteutettua juuri meille parhaan laitteen. KAR-Lehtonen oikeasti toteuttaa sen mitä asiakas haluaa ja pystyy myös asiakkaalle uusissa jutuissa antamaan neuvoa.

Matti Törmänen, Kuljetusliike Törmänen Oy

Vi har haft ett mycket gott samarbete med KAR-Lehtonen i över tjugo år. De har byggt ett antal olje-/ bitumen- och gassläp åt oss. De har även färdigställt alla våra tankbilar. Vi är väldigt nöjda med deras service.
