Foreign Object Search & Retrieval (FOSAR)


In addition to our visual inspection services, we offer a full range of Foreign Object Search and Retrieval (FOSAR) services that will locate and remove unwanted foreign material from your system.

DEKRA is the trusted industry choice for all FOSAR applications. Our team of skilled technicians combine state of the art Remote Visual Inspection (RVI) technology with custom retrieval tools to accomplish the most difficult FOSAR tasks in the industry. Our technicians carry a wide array of retrieval tools that can perform any retrieval task possible. With in-line tools built into cameras and remote operated claws, foreign material will be safely removed from your plant systems. In fact, we have a greater than 99% retrieval success rate.

When you have a retrieval need, trust us to perform the inspection and remove the foreign material with minimally evasive access into your equipment. Our goal is to save you time and money through reduced downtime. Take advantage of our exclusive Critical Path Response program when the removal of the foreign material is of the utmost importance.

Our FOSAR service is a solution to a loss of FME control. Foreign material can appear during any stage of a component’s lifecycle. Through schedule outages or routine maintenance, foreign material has the potential to cause catastrophic damage to a systems integrity. DEKRA Inspections, Inc. is the trusted partner to keep your plant systems operational and efficient.
