Risk Based Inspection, are you doing it properly?
3 september 2020 van 3:00 pm tot 4:00 pm
Static equipment such as piping systems, storage tanks, heat exchangers and so on are all related to different failure mechanisms where corrosion, metal fatigue and various forms of material damage/degradation are possible. This can lead to undesirable scenarios such as leakage, fire, explosion and unplanned stops, to name a few.
Despite these severe well known consequences, these static components often receive less attention during general maintenance and turnarounds compared to rotating assets, such as pumps, motors, etc. As a maintenance professional, you prefer to avoid unexpected failures and subsequent reactive maintenance. After all, they can be (very) expensive and dangerous. Such problems can be limited by correct preventive and predictive maintenance. This means that the actual state of static assets must be known as well as possible and that a good predictability of failure mechanisms requires very accurate/realistic degradation models.
In order to decide when which (parts of) static installations should be inspected or monitored, the Risk Based Inspection (RBI) method has been developed. An RBI analysis identifies the risks and consequences of malfunctions in terms of Health, Safety, Environment and Business factors.
Based on this, priority can be given to the most critical static assets and, as a result, inspection intervals can be optimized to reduce overall risks as well as inspection costs. Companies often have limited resources available (inspection equipment / personnel) coupled with a large scope of items for inspection. Thorough inspection of all static assets is therefore in most cases simply not possible. Through a good RBI approach, the available technical resources can be used as efficiently and effectively as possible for the static assets that need it most, based on total risk.
