Risk-based inspection (RBI) and maintenance

Achieve safe and cost-efficient operation of your industrial plants

WHAT IS RISK-BASED INSPECTION (RBI)?

Risk-based inspection (RBI) is a procedure in which industrial risks resulting from equipment or structural degradation are identified, assessed and categorised. Through an analysis of the probability and consequences of failure associated with each equipment, component or structure, a proper inspection and maintenance programme is then developed.

WHY IS RISK-BASED INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE IMPORTANT?

RBI is crucial for optimising the operation and maintenance of industrial plants in various industries. It helps you to meet the financial, reliability and regulatory needs of the industry by improving your plant’s performance, availability and safety. It extends the lifetime of your plant by establishing a long-term testing and inspection procedure.

TÜV SÜD HELPS TO OPTIMISE YOUR PLANT’S CONDITION THROUGH A PROFESSIONAL RISK-BASED INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE PROGRAMME.

TÜV-RoiM (risk-oriented inspection and maintenance) is TÜV SÜD’s strategy for developing optimised, cost-effective inspection and maintenance programmes within an asset- and risk-management context. The strategy combines reliability and risk assessments with information extracted from expert judgement, physical models, and plant-specific and generic data. With this assessment, critical components can be differentiated from non-critical components, helping you determine where special maintenance measures need to be taken. We base our qualitative and quantitative techniques on internationally accepted standards and guidelines, and then individually tailor the solutions to your specific concerns.
