Plant Integrity

Risk Based Inspection (RBI)

Within any operational setting, not all components or parts have an equal likelihood of failure, nor are the consequences the same should failure occur. In order to save time and money, whilst still maintaining optimal levels of safety, it is extremely useful for an operator to know which locations within a system are of greater concern than others.

Inspecta International is able to undertake a Risk Based Inspection (RBI) that takes into account both likelihood of failure and consequences of failure, to allow clients to make more informed decisions regarding inspection schedules and maintenance budgeting, allowing resources to be allocated appropriately to ensure reliability and integrity.

An effective RBI program will highlight those high-risk areas that should come high in the maintenance schedule, whilst identifying those of low risk that can be placed further down the schedule.

Our RBI Inspectors review all relevant data pertaining to the system including maintenance history and industry guidelines as part of a comprehensive risk assessment and assign ratings to all parts of the system, from which the client can then prioritise inspection and maintenance programs.

Fitness For Service (FFS) & Remnant Life Assessment (RLA)

No matter how well a component or part has been manufactured, overtime it will naturally degrade and eventually fail. Most products of this nature come with a minimum safe operating life span stated by the manufacturer, but this can and will change depending primarily on operating conditions (temperatures, chemicals, environment, loads etc.).

In order to achieve the maximum life out of a component, without compromising safety or reliability, operators need to have a clear understanding of residual life.

Inspecta International is able to undertake a complete assessment of a system to evaluate how long individual components can safely remain in situ, making the decision process to "run", "replace" or "repair" easier for operators.

RLA, when correctly applied, not only provides an accurate assessment of residual life (based on existing and future operating conditions), but also allows for more effective maintenance planning so resources are not wasted and time and money can be allocated to those components as necessary.

To carry out an RLA, Inspecta International gathers data from a number of sources; manufacturers design specifications, operating statistics, maintenance history, NDT. Computer modeling then allows us to accurately predict residual life and identify those components that need immediate attention.

Using Integri-Tech FFS technology, Inspecta International offers the most powerful approach to FFS and can provide all levels of assessment, from a one-off program to periodic monitoring, all in accordance with applicable Codes. All defect mechanisms can be included, along with any combination of loadings (not just pressure) to determine an accurate Integrity status. For example corrosion, vibration and FPSO motion plus process cycles of pressure & temperature can be included in a single assessment.

Using this technology,we are able to offer the only continuous Remote FFS monitoring technology in the world, integrity assessments are available in real time and inspectors are able to quantify integrity and accurately predict remaining life.

Furthermore FFS can be used to evaluate and re-rate pressure vessels, piping and storage tanks.

Pipeline Integrity Assessment

Pipeline owners and operators are often faced with a number of challenges when it comes to assessing integrity, which are often centered around access, particularly when the pipework is buried or sub sea. In addition, welds create potential areas of weakness that require inspection to confirm integrity.

Inspecta International offers its clients a number of services designed to assess the integrity (internal and external) of pipework, which takes the uncertainty out of knowing its condition. Client corrosion monitoring programs may consist of one or more of the following;
  • Cathodic Protection (CP)
    CP is widely used for controlling corrosion of metallic pipework or structures that are in contact with electrolytically conducting substrates such as soil and water, by reducing the metal's corrosion potential and thus its corrosion rate.
  • Direct Current Voltage Gradient (DCVG)
    DCVG uses voltage gradients within the substrate surrounding a buried pipeline to assess its coating, allowing defects to be located and sized. To be effective the pipe has to be protected by an impressed current cathodic protection system, although a temporary equivalent can be installed for the purposes of the inspection.
  • Close Interval Potential Survey (CIPS)
    Typically a buried pipeline is protected from corrosion by a cathodic protection system and a set of test stations that monitor its effectiveness. However many systems are not able to assess the entire length of pipe and as such only measure protection in a localised area. CIPS is designed to assess protection along the entire length of pipeline, by measuring the pipe / soil potential using a fixed trailing wire connected to the pipe and a set of reference electrodes located along the inspection length (typically every metre).
  • Intelligent Pigging
    An intelligent pig is a device, containing one or more measuring instruments, that is placed inside a pipeline to collect data along its length in an attempt to assess the integrity of the pipe. Once analysed, the information can be used to pinpoint areas of concern and help coordinate maintenance resources appropriately.
  • Welding Inspection
    Various NDT techniques can be used to assess the integrity of pipeline welds, be it during its construction or an in-service inspection. In addition to conventional methods, more advanced techniques can be more cost effective, including phased array, time of flight diffraction.

Equipment currently in use:

  • CathTechHexcorderMillenium,
  • Olympus Omniscan MX,
  • NDSTechOps 660, 880.
