EEMUA Seminar: Maintaining the mechanical integrity of ageing plant


near Durham




Ageing mechanisms such as corrosion, erosion, fatigue, obsolescence and calibration failure should form part of a site integrity management system. This seminar looks specifically at progress in the field of maintenance with respect to the mechanical integrity of ageing plant, and how things are changing.


​Maintaining the mechanical integrity of ageing plant is a key focus of concern when managing assets containing hazardous fluids. The release of EEMUA 231 in the UK helped establish a benchmark for integrity management. The issue of ageing plant is just part of the overall management of the integrity of a site's assets and it is closely linked to the effectiveness of the robust maintenance regime, among others. This seminar looks at progress in the field, and how things are changing.
