Major failures in high energy piping systems over the past 30 years highlight the need to establish an effective maintenance and inspection program to prevent future failures.
High energy piping systems are affected by various factors such as high temperature creep, fatigue, creep-fatigue, thermal shock, ratcheting and flow accelerated corrosion. Load cycles may also add stress to high energy piping systems – pushing the system beyond its original design limits.
Failures in high energy piping systems that are caused by these issues can result in personnel injuries and fatalities, as well as damaged equipment and loss of power generation. To avoid these catastrophic failures, power plant operators need to maintain the safe and reliable operation of their high energy piping systems.
Intertek can help power plant operators achieve this by developing and implementing an asset integrity management program that can ensure the safety of personnel and reliable operation while minimizing piping inspection costs.
As part of our asset integrity management program for high energy piping systems, Intertek can provide piping stress analyses, rank critical welds and create optimized inspection schedules. Our assessment of high energy piping systems can include the following evaluations:
Intertek has years of experience inspecting hundreds of high energy piping systems. We can conduct a full condition assessment of your power plant piping providing the data and knowledge to help you make informed asset integrity management decisions.
