REMAINING LIFE ASSESSMENT (RLA)

RLA INQUIRY FORM

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.
