Integrity Engineering

Why Is integrity engineering important for your facility?

As an operator of an asset intensive facility, you would like the plant performance to be predictable.  One way to achieve such performance is by keeping all maintenance and inspection activities based on actual equipment health condition and compliant to OSHA 1910.119(j).  Our value to you is to work together to identify opportunities to unlock hidden factors that prevent a predictable plant performance.

For example, if an organization traditionally performs time-based inspections following practices outlined by the American Petroleum Institute (API 510, API 570, API 653, etc.) or by a regulation, then implementing a risk-based solution (API 580/581, ASME PCC-3, etc.) would be a new approach for your organization.  This approach could add significant value through cost savings and improved reliability.

The below diagram is an example of a Risk-Based Inspection program implementation and management:
