There are many
systems and installations where it will be desirable or even
necessary to constantly monitor condition, e.g. to comply with
safety regulations or to manage ongoing maintenance schedules.
Assessment of condition is based on the results from one or
several studies to establish condition status, and to evaluate
Metserve can offer a range of on-site studies, performed by our
own experienced personnel, available at short notice.
One of the main aspects of condition assessment is to localize,
describe and assess the impact of
breakdown or overloading of components before critical safety or
operational parameters are reached.
For example, creep damage in high
pressure steam pipes can have catastrophic results, but by
regular use of replica techniques and other non-destructive test
methods, we can identify creep damage at an early and
non-critical point. This allows safety measures and repairs to
be effected in conjunction with planned maintenance schedules.
Higher levels of safety and reduced repair costs can thus be
