FITNESS FOR SERVICE ASSESSMENT SERVICES

Knowing the safety and integrity of your equipment is important for any plant engineer and any other personnel that are working around these potential hazards. The catastrophic failure of any pressurised equipment can lead to loss of life and loss of production. At SimuMech we work in close collaboration with inspection departments and plant personnel to perform Fitness for Service assessments according to API 579. If your plant does not have its own inspectors or any NDT specialist, we can also assist by suggesting experienced certified third party inspectors we have worked with before.

Our team is fully equipped to conduct all three levels of assessments as outlined in the API 579 Code. Typical defects we assess include:

  • Bulges and dents
  • General area corrosion (general metal loss regardless the reason)
  • Pitting corrosion
  • Weld misalignments and shell distortions
  • Crack-like flaws
  • Laminations

Simumech focuses particularly on level 3 assessments, where intricate finite element analyses are necessary to determine whether the equipment can be safely operated for an extended period or if replacement is required. This enables you to make informed decisions regarding the operation, repair, re-rating, redesign, or retirement of your equipment.
