Inspection

A Pi specialist can work with you to develop an inspection plan, using industry recognised methods, such as risk-based inspection, based on the API 580/581 standards.

What is a risk based inspection?

Risk-based inspection (RBI) is the process of developing an inspection plan based on knowledge of the risk of failure of equipment. Risk-based inspections are a combination of an assessment of the likelihood of failure due to damage, deterioration or degradation, and the consequences of any such failure. You can rely on us to develop the most appropriate risk-based inspection for your unique business scenario, based on our exhaustive knowledge of material’s degradation processes and risk-based inspection solutions. Using an established methodology and TWI’s RiskWISE® software, we can develop maintenance or replacement solutions, and give guidance on managing your assets most effectively, from individual component studies through to turnkey, plant-wide projects – tailored to your needs.

A risk-based inspection can benefit you by:

  • Increasing your confidence in your equipment
  • Ensuring that you are in compliance with current safety regulations
  • Maximising the reliability and efficiency of your structure or component 
  • Enabling you to make inspection decisions, based on relevant information and expertise

Plant Integrity's expertise in risk based inspections

Using established methodologies, in combination with TWI’s IntegriWISE® and RiskWISE® software, we can develop bespoke maintenance or replacement solutions, give guidance on managing your assets in the most effective manner, and create plans for individual component studies through to turnkey, plant wide projects.  The information gained from this process is used to identify the type of damage that may potentially be present, where such damage could occur, the rate at which such damage might evolve, and where failure would give rise to danger.  

Our expertise encompasses the application of:​ 

  • Qualitative methods, expert judgement, fitness for service Level I - unit level assessment employing TWI's IntegriWISE software 
  • Semi-quantitative methods, rule based, fitness for service Level II - equipment level assessment employing TWI's RiskWISE software 
  • Quantitative methods, probabilistic logic models, fitness for service Level III - component level assessment
