Asset Integrity/Condition Monitoring Services


Over time, the risk of accidents and unplanned stoppages increase with ageing plants. Our approach to asset integrity and condition monitoring ensures our customers maximise production output and deliver optimum performance for installed assets.

We use a wide range of diagnostics tools, techniques and strategies to identify early-stage failures and monitor an assets lifecycle.

Our multi-skilled engineers equipped with a range of non-intrusive inspection and measurement tooling carry out periodic data collection and analysis of critical plant and equipment, allowing maintenance to be planned and executed during planned outages, rather than having to stop production.

Sand/Sediment Mapping

Sand/Sediment Mapping

Sand and other produced solids are damaging for an offshore installation. In addition to the detrimental erosion problems sand causes, it also leads to operational difficulties due to its accumulation in valve mechanisms, on pipe bends and in the bottom of vessels.

Control Valve Performance - V-Scan / Smart Positioners

Our teams of highly trained technicians utilise advanced diagnostic tools to monitor the condition of your valves and help you to better plan your shutdowns, saving you valuable time and money.

We have the ability to perform condition-based monitoring of all control valves, preventing valves from being needlessly overhauled. On average, our valve condition campaigns have shown:

75% of surveyed valves suffered performance issues requiring remedial works.

Of which, only 11% required braking pressure containment for rectification.

46% had calibration problems

28% of valves had problems with packing leakage or suffered performance problems due to high packing friction

We understand that not all valves and processes are equal. Our engineers can help you identify valves on "severe services" and ensure adequate spares management.

 

In-line PSV Performance Verification

Inspection and maintenance of safety valves is usually completed by removing the valve from line and returning it to a workshop for disassembly, overhaul and testing before being returned to site recertified ready for installation (link to PSV Management).  This takes time as well as impacts production when the safety valve is removed from your systems.

Utilising  our In-Situ Safety valve equipment, our Technicians have the capability to complete “Hot Testing” of any size or type of compatible safety valve whilst the production process remains online identifying those in need of adjustment or full service allowing you to continue production safe in the knowledge that your safety valve is still functioning as intended.

 

Digital Conditional Surveys (Visual)

We can carry out wall thickness surveys of valves, vessels and pipework utilising level II qualified personnel to establish if any corrosion, erosion, pitting or damage has occurred during the service of the part. Using pulse echo ultrasonic equipment and scanning using a gridded test system, any reduction in wall thickness can be accurately detected to prevent exceeding the minimum safety critical factor of the part.

Mechanical Condition Monitoring

Any moving machine has the potential to fail, including motors, pumps and fans. The problem can be bearings, misalignment, seal failure or a myriad of other faults.

We utilise condition monitoring technology to identify and determine the root cause of pending mechanical failure.

Reducing maintenance costs through instant, non-intrusive analysis of mechanical equipment and other critical plant.

 

Electrical Preventative Maintenance

The catastrophic consequences of electrical system failure must be avoided at all costs. Routine panel inspection allows companies to detect, monitor and correct problems early, avoiding shutdown, loss of production and safety incidents.

Pinpoint components requiring maintenance, increase safety and reduce downtime across an asset.

Demonstrate good operation with a certified report with a full audit trail of inspected equipment. As a result, satisfy insurance company requirements.

 

Compressed Air Systems

Leaks are a significant source of wasted energy in a compressed air system. Not only are they a safety issue, they increase energy consumption and equipment running costs, as well as causing unnecessary carbon emissions and compromising reliability.

Compressed air systems are subject to mechanical deterioration at connections, pipes, valves and other components. Leaks across the system result in back up/oversized/rental compressors being installed to meet demand.

CO2 leakage to atmosphere (from compressed air systems) are also damaging to both the health and safety of personnel and the environment.

With no interruption to your operations we provide compressed air leak surveys, detecting and quantifying leakages across a compressed air system, significantly reducing an assets carbon footprint, reducing electricity and maintenance costs while enhancing equipment performance.

 

Steam System Management

Leaking steam impacts plant operators in a number of ways. As well as being a personal safety issue, they are a major source of energy loss, resulting in higher energy consumption and affecting production. Steam leaks cause unnecessary shutdowns, increased equipment workload and high maintenance costs.

We provide an exhaustive steam system management program for steam trap populations, insulated pipework, as well as ancillary valve support and maintenance.

Additionally, we offer condition monitoring on steam using equipment and components such as valves, motors and pumps on the condensate recovery system.

 

CUI Risk Monitoring

Corrosion under insulation (CUI) is a severe form of external corrosion that occurs inside carbon and low ally steel equipment. Water is absorbed (or collected) within insulation and corrodes the pipework hidden out of sight.

Failure to manage CUI correctly poses a major threat to the safety of personnel and facilities, leading to expensive and time-consuming maintenance operations.

Identify existing CUI as well as CUI risk areas, allowing companies to quickly target and de-lag highlighted areas for further investigation.

 

Sand/Sediment Mapping

Sand and other produced solids are damaging for an offshore installation. In addition to the detrimental erosion problems sand causes, it also leads to operational difficulties due to its accumulation in valve mechanisms, on pipe bends and in the bottom of vessels.

We can detect sand build up, blockages and areas of reduced flow. We measure and precisely map levels of sludge, solids and fluids, allowing companies to optimize maintenance planning and prioritise cleaning exercises, as well as monitor the effectiveness of solids removal equipment.
