Boiler and Machinery Engineering

Ensure equipment reliability while mitigating property losses

WHat iS BOILER AND MACHINERY ENGINEERING?

Boiler and Machinery (B&M) Engineering services ensure that your equipment complies with mechanical codes and safety requirements. It includes repair assessments, incident investigations, evaluation of maintenance programmes and analyses of facilities production, process operations and utility systems.

Why is Boiler and machinery engineering Important?

The unexpected loss of critical production machinery, utilities and electrical equipment can cripple productivity. These losses represent a major expense to insurance programmes that is typically absorbed as an operating cost. Property damage and the considerable time required to replace key mechanical components can quickly put a company out of business. Therefore, it is important to establish a reliable programme that ensures equipment reliability and prevents failure.

TÜV SÜD helps you avert equipment failures while increasing operational efficiency

Our services enable your organisation to achieve its specific loss prevention goals and objectives. We support you in developing action plans to control losses and avoid breakdowns, while enabling you to identify, track and trend specific mechanical concerns. In addition to concentrating your resources on critical needs, we identify ways to improve operational efficiencies.

What does boiler and machinery engineering involve?

  • Risk assessment / Loss control analysis

    We analyse facilities production, process operations and utility systems to identify and quantify loss exposures. For every site visit, we deliver a loss prevention report with loss estimates and underwriting information.
  • Mechanical Integrity and Code Compliance evaluations

    We support your needs with a combination of specialised loss control engineers and our jurisdictional services group. Our experts implement industry-specific Mechanical Integrity programmes and assist with O.S.H.A. “Process Safety” requirements.
  • Pressure vessel inspection and repair assessments

    Our B&M Engineering programme concentrates on the preventive/predictive aspects of pressure vessels (original thickness and operating criteria, nondestructive test methods, frequency of inspection, results and operating life expectancy).
  • Complete evaluations and development of risk-based programmes

    We provide on-site evaluation and development of preventive and predictive maintenance, critical electrical equipment, potential utility bottlenecks, maintenance procedures programmes, as well as critical spares, contingency plans, vibration analysis and oil testing programmes.
