To address new and aging infrastructure issues, E2G combines these core consulting services to create a Life-Cycle Management (LCM) process that ensures equipment safety and reliability from design to retirement.
THE LIFE-CYCLE MANAGEMENT APPROACH
Most pressurized equipment items will continue to operate well beyond their intended design life. Adoption of an equipment LCM process is necessary to ensure that equipment operates safely and reliably. The LCM process covers equipment from design to retirement and includes in-service inspection, FFS, and/or repairs as required.
To effectively implement the LCM approach, codes and standards must exist that cover each aspect of the process. In addition, the technology integration in these codes and standards must be coordinated so that similar analysis techniques are employed at the time of construction and in-service assessments. An overview of API, ASME, and other codes and standards is provided with a discussion of the effort required to integrate the technology to support the LCM process.
