Mr. Paresh Haribhakti delivers a lecture on Fitness for Service

On 9th Feb 2013, Mr. Paresh Haribhakti delivered a lecture on "Fitness for Service" covering the health /condition of plant equipment and its fitness for service at the Fertiliser Association of India Training Programme for Sr. Maintenance Engineers, 17-22 February 2013, Vadodara, Gujarat, India.

The purpose of FFS assessment is not simply to continue the component in its service beyond its serviceable life, but to ensure utilization of full potential concerning present damage assessment. The typical outcome of a fitness-for-service approach provides a “go/no-go” decision. Optionally, in case of ‘end-of-life’ like conditions, FFS outcome may also provide guideline on management decision for continual use of component through de-rated design parameters. This provides a rational makeshift arrangement to continue the production. Additionally, the fitness for service assessment of components can help setting up proper inspection schedules, modified maintenance procedures and more of online monitoring systems. The exercise in totality tends to assure safe and more economic operation of plants.

The Fitness For Service (FFS) assessment is performed to make sure that process plant equipment, such as high temperature exposure components, pressure vessels, piping, tanks, will operate safe and reliable. The international codes API 579 and BS 5709 provide general guidelines for assessing fitness for service of different components. The assessment procedures are separated in multi levels depending on criticality of the component.
