Fitness for service assessment is performed to make sure that process plant equipment, such as pressure vessels, piping and tanks will operate safely and reliably for some desired future period. API Recommended Practice 579 provides a general procedure for assessing fitness for service. The assessment procedure evaluates the remaining strength of the equipment in its current condition, which may be degraded from its original conditions. Common degradation mechanisms include corrosion, localized corrosion, pitting and crevice corrosion, hydrogen attack, embrittlement, fatigue, high-temperature creep and mechanical distortion. As the ideal solution for the problems, we Top Link Conference & Event Management, present you with “API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, Fitness-For-
Ronald Frend is a registered engineer, and has almost forty years of engineering, consulting and management experience. He rose to a senior management position in Shell International before opening an engineering consultancy in England. Ron has worked extensively in Fitness For Service applications and now presents training courses for ASME in FFS and Materials worldwide. Ron has pioneered the use of Potential Failure Analysis (PFA) – a technique in which all possible modes of failure are examined before a failure occurs. Ron used his experience and expertise of maintenance, reliability and engineering to formulate a practical methodology for effective control of maintenance activities. His clients include the big names in oil and gas, chemical & petrochemical refinery, marine and EPCC industry such as Shell, Exxon, BP, Chevron, Basf, ADNOC, Kuwait Petroleum and etc.
