Chemical Components Failure Analysis
Component failures in chemical/petrochemical industries often assume hazardous nature of consequences. First of all it is a continuous process. Component failure at one particular location can have devastating effect at other location. Process material handled is often highly inflammable and not environment friendly. Handling them involves complexity in the process parameters with regard to temperature, pressure, fluid mixture and more particularly contamination of unpalatable constituents. Besides plant proficiency, safety in terms of human factor, environment and equipment is of paramount consideration. Classical nature of failure investigation provides hands on information to take corrective action to prevent failures in future, ensure over all safety and perpetuate plant performance.
