Occasionally, the Fitness-For-Service assessment will indicate that suitable margins against failure are not achieved. One recourse is to re-rate the equipment. Becht Engineering has substantial experience and expertise in re-rating equipment; skills that we can use in this outcome of a Fitness-For-Service assessment. As members of ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel as well as ASME B31 Piping code committees, we are experts in the application of code rules. Re-rating equipment may allow it to be safely operated until the damage can be repaired or a replacement can be fabricated.
