Hello and Welcome,
Petroleum and petrochemical refinery materials failure problems can be stopped—usually very easily. A materials reliability assurance survey specifically designed for oil and petrochemical refineries to avert materials and equipment failures is now available from Lifetime Reliability Solutions (LRS) Consultants.
A focused Materials Reliability Assurance procedure has been prepared to assist petrochemical and petroleum refinery personnel in maintaining a high level of safety and equipment reliability in all their operating units. The procedure is used to review and search for potential materials performance and corrosion control issues in processing plant and equipment. Once identified, such concerns are evaluated for their potential effects and costs on equipment and appropriate risk minimization action is determined consistent with the operating and safety risks involved.
Often, the only action required is periodic monitoring of the risk area to assure continued reliable operation. Routine wall thickness measurements of PtR heater tubing during turnarounds is an example of such risk monitoring. If an operating condition is detected that could create a potentially serious problem, a well defined action plan would be prepared to prevent the concern from developing into a hazard to the unit. For example, an increase in the hydrogen partial pressure of a hydroprocessing unit could require alloy upgrading of certain components to avoid hydrogen damage to the equipment.
In conjunction with the Materials Reliability Assurance review, a 'Materials Failure Prevention Checklist' has been created to specify the minimum effort essential for safe and economical operation of major process units. This information can be incorporated into the operating manuals of respective units.
Use the Refinery Consultants with Specialist Refinery Materials Reliability and Materials Assurance Expertise
You access decades of experience in refining and petrochemicals materials reliability assurance when you hire a LRS Refinery Consultant. This knowledge and expertise is used to conduct materials assurance surveys and assist refineries in averting materials and equipment failures. We provide services that extend beyond materials integrity surveys and includes both extensive staff training and the development of internal checklists for safe and economical operation of major process units.
The materials failure prevention checklists are also useful for in-house instruction in materials performance and corrosion control. Units covered by these checklists include: alkylation, amine, CHD, cooling water, crude fractionation, delayed coking, FCC, furfural, heaters, hydrocracker, hydrogen, ketone, PtR, PtR Pretreater, saturate gas plant, sour water stripper, steam generation, sulfur, TCC and unsaturate gas plant.
Use our Refinery Consultant to address thermodynamic, kinetic and mass transport materials performance and corrosion control problems in petroleum refining, petrochemical processing and hydrocarbon transport facilities. We can assist you in the simulation, design and optimization of a wide variety of chemical processes such as absorption, extraction, neutralization, separation and fractionation.
We provide support and solutions in the following general categories for refinery capital projects and operating units:
- Corrosion resistance of construction materials
- Influence of operating and process variables on corrosion and fouling
- Use of additives such as neutralizers and inhibitors
- Water washing
- Corrosion monitoring
- Hydrogen outgassing
- Wet H2S service
- Creep deformation of high temperature alloys
- Process side computer simulation (thermodynamic, kinetic)
- Structural material computer simulation (finite element analysis)
- Nondestructive testing
- Protective capabilities of paints, coatings and linings
- Effectiveness of cathodic protection systems
- Fluid flow aspects of erosion/corrosion
Both process-side and water-side expertise is available for all units, equipment and components.
There are simple, successful solutions for poor refinery materials reliability. Refinery materials failure can be prevented, and our Materials Reliability Assurance and Materials Failure Prevention Consultant expertise will show you what to do. Call us now, or email us, and ask what are the best ways to provide materials assurance in your petroleum or petrochemical products refinery.
My best regards to you,
