Why Asset Integrity Management Matters

Why Asset Integrity Management Matters

Why Do We Need Asset Integrity Programs?

An effective Mechanical / Asset Integrity program provides assurance that a facility's equipment and assets are designed, fabricated, procured, installed and maintained in a manner appropriate for its intended application, throughout the life of the operation. As a risk management program, asset integrity management (AIM) focuses on the core elements of safety, environmental protection, reliability, regulatory compliance and data management.

Our risk based approach to managing asset integrity addresses improving efficiency, increasing uptime and reducing both operational costs and risk. A robust AIM solution helps owners/operators optimize the service life and operational performance of existing assets.

Fixed Equipment Inspection and Certification

In order to protect their licenses to operate, facility owners must verify that their in-service equipment demonstrates the appropriate levels of safety, integrity and reliability. Operators set annual targets to maintain maximum production and avoid unnecessary downtime due to mechanical failure or loss of integrity. To support these objectives, maintaining equipment documentation facilitates better management of safer, more reliable and compliant assets and operations.

Corrosion Under Insulation

Operators are seeking the most advanced and data-driven technical solutions to support a full lifecycle approach for controlling the risk of corrosion. Corrosion management and AIM should be integrated as part of an overall cost-effective maintenance effort that optimizes service life, safety and operational performance. Corrosion under Insulation (CUI) is a pervasive damage mechanism that affects almost every facility in the world. ABS Group can help facility owners minimize CUI failures and increase operational efficiency by effectively organizing and executing a CUI implementation program.
