We are frequently called in to evaluate damage (cracks, corrosion, blisters, etc) on equipment that remains in-service. We have been able to quickly perform the Fitness-For-Service assessments to assist the plant operations in determining if the equipment remains safe to operate. We work with plant operations to evaluate further deterioration mechanisms to determine the optimal time to perform repairs. Often the damage is found in routine inspections between turn-arounds. If the equipment can be safely operated until the next planned outage, we will recommend that and work with plant operations for further in-service inspection/monitoring.
