Risk Based Inspection
TCR Engineering Services has partnership with PP SIMTECH (UK), to provide comprehensive Risk Based Inspection (RBI) as well as Fitness for Service (FFS) assessments.
The reliable and proven Risk based Inspection (RBI) technology process developed by PP SIMTECH (UK), with key guidance from API 580/581 and UK HSE, has been accepted globally as good engineering practice by leading international companies. PP SIMTECH has successfully implemented RBI and FFS at global majors including BP, Dow Chemicals, GPIC, ADNOC-Fertil, Norsk Hydro, BASF, INEOS.
approach to inspection provides immense benefits which includes an increase in plant availability, cost saving, minimum shutdown durations, change in inspection strategies and intervals and improved safety compliance. The RBI team study also improves the team working and communication between all the departments of the plant.
PP SIMTECH uses rbiAsyst™, a fully auditable & transparent software system to facilitate the RBI team study and successful implementation of RBI technology process at a plant site.
The RBI team study facilitated by TCR PP SIMTECH and rbiAsyst™ software provides plant management and operations team a reliable method to identify and resolve complex technical issues associated with static equipment such as reactors, furnaces, strippers, distillation columns, heat exchangers, pressure vessels, reformers, boilers, fired heaters along with its associated items such as interconnected piping and storage tanks.
Reliable assessment and calculation of risk profile of an item, based on its "active" and "potential" Damage Mechanism ensures that the resulting inspection interval for the item is reliably optimized in a safe and cost-effective manner.
The TCR PP SIMTECH team includes Mechanical Engineers, Metallurgists, Corrosion Engineers, NDT Experts, RBI Experts and Project Managers and provides services in areas like RBI (API 580/581), Fitness-For-Service (API 579), Material Damage Mechanisms Assessment, Metallurgical Investigation & Failure Analysis and In-service Inspection.
Our approach to
is based on a strong co-operation between the plant personnel and TCR PP SIMTECH experts.
