The Mechanical Integrity Management: Optimising the Use of Your Industrial Assets Despite Their Natural Ageing
21-22 November 2018, Brussels

Mechanical integrity constitutes one of the most important element for the process safety management (PSM). However, it also appears as being one of the weakest, and most expensive, among the majority of chemical and petro-chemical industries. The aim of this training course is to better understand the consequences of material ageing as well as to provide the tools to optimise reliability and safety. This awareness course will provide the basic knowledge to optimise inspection and maintenance costs. Most common corrosion degradation types are presented. Typical as well as advanced non-destructive inspection techniques are illustrated. Loss of containment case studies are outlined and remedies described.
