Predict and Pinpoint Threats to Your Piping

By comparing 20+ years of pipe testing data to documented field observations and system characteristics, we have identified patterns and common factors that suggest evidence of stability or weakness. This article details how to detect that CUI has materialized on insulated piping, cues of vulnerability, and more.

 
 

P&ID Accuracy: An Owner’s Responsibility

Failure to document process safety information, which includes P&ID’s as ‘information pertaining to the equipment of the process’, ranks as #5 of the Top Ten violations reported by OSHA. In this article we explore requirements, common errors and recommendations for compliance.

 
 

Defining Wall Thickness Acceptance Levels for Your In-Service Piping

The piping in your system covers a large footprint of the equipment that is susceptible to ‘deficiency’. Implementing a baseline for your organization that defines specific action at different severity levels of piping deterioration, and what those levels are, is a necessary inclusion for operating within the parameters of PSM and RMP requirements.
