Ensuring the integrity of equipment throughout the entire life cycle
For operators of chemical, oil and gas processing plants and facilities, mechanical integrity is a critical concern. Facilities and equipment are subject to a variety of stresses as they age. These stresses can lead to equipment failures, adversely impacting production activity, and potentially exposing workers to safety risks.
An effective mechanical integrity program begins in the design phase, evaluates equipment at installation, regularly assesses the condition of equipment, and identifies when equipment inspection/maintenance is required. Mechanical Integrity is the combination of regulatory compliance, codes of construction/inspection, best practices in operations/maintenance, and safety. This proactive approach can extend the performance life of expensive facilities and equipment and prevent equipment breakdowns.
