As a plant manager, what would you do if one of your inspectors came to you during a shutdown and said there was massive corrosion on a piece of equipment? In some cases, a delayed or wrong answer to this question can result in a million-dollar-a-day loss to your business. A fitness for service (FFS) analysis can provide you with effective tools to make these kinds of decisions.
In this webinar, we will discuss the joint standard, API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. We will review the layout of the code, all the different types of damage mechanisms and what the analysis results mean, including your possible paths forward. We will finish up with a demonstration of how you can use PV Elite to efficiently perform Level 1 and Level 2 analyses for corrosion.
