Managing asset integrity involves designing, procuring, constructing and maintaining process facilities that provide robust and reliable containment and control of process hazards over the entire facility lifetime. Damage mechanisms such as corrosion, erosion, fatigue, embrittlement, mechanical damage and operating a process outside of its integrity operating window can lead to loss-of-containment events. Other damage mechanisms affect rotating equipment, instrumentation and controls, safety systems, utilities and key facility structures. This session is an opportunity to share advances in condition monitoring techniques to detect damage mechanisms, as well as other aspects of mechanical integrity programs such as aging plants; deficiency management; critical equipment; functional testing of standby systems; and determining inspection, testing and preventative maintenance frequencies using risk-based methods.
