Corrosion management increase the lifetime usage of the assets, decreases lifetime cost and compliance with regulations and legislative requirements. As the assets age, corrosion management becomes even more critical and challenging. Effective corrosion management provides capital and operational cost savings while increasing the operational reliability of the assets.
In large industries like Oil & Gas, Water & Energy, risk levels are highly dependent upon asset integrity throughout the value chain. This includes pipelines, turbines, storage tanks, refineries, processing plants and more. Asset integrity provides singular system to access asset information with its operation parameters. Digital twin is the replica of on-field equipment that is used for simulation purposes and reduce operational risks.
Meters are a critical part of any industrial operation. It can be a flow computer, temperature or pressure meter with different technologies like Ultrasonic, Piezoelectric or Turbine. Regular flow of data from the metering assets allows operations team to take corrective actions and prevent faults and unplanned shutdowns. Metering data system provides necessary tools to capture & monitor meter data and take actions based on prediction and prescription models.
Field operatives always have the best knowledge of the actual conditions of the deployed equipment and processes. As the span of the operations increase bringing the field data together become tedious and time taking. Operator data integration provides combined learning of on-field data and online OT applications for taking informed decisions and reducing the operational risk.
Often large industries struggle to capture the most important asset of their operations, data. Data availability is the essential for operations and management team to work efficiently. Monitoring distributed assets or mitigating a fault are all possible through a robust data acquisition and monitoring system.
Nondestructive Testing (NDT) also referred to as Nondestructive Examination (NDE) is the process of evaluating materials, components or assemblies. The purpose is to inspect without causing damage or shutting down the operations. NDT done at regular intervals saves huge cost in the long run and reduces the operational risks without halting the current operations. Inspection report generally covers type of flaw/damage, location, shape, size and orientation.
