Need for Remaining Life Assessment
- Increasing cost of new equipment and diminishing resources
- Extended lead time in plant construction
- Stringent environmental, safety and other regulations
- Increasing awareness for exploring the technological feasibility in extending component life
A pragmatic approach is adopted in handling the cases of remaining life assessment. Efforts are put in to collect as much data as possible on the component / equipment history. Often brain storming sessions are conducted with the concerned engineers and technicians using the equipment as well as the other experts who are familiar with the operational details.
