Process System Integrity– Piping Vibration Management

Reducing the risk of vibration-induced fatigue

Liiketoimintahaaste

According to recent studies, 20% of process pipework failures are due to vibration-induced fatigue. Primary contributing factors are: - Increased flow rates due to de-bottlenecking - Increased flow rates due to relaxation of erosion velocity limits - Increased use of duplex alloys for erosion and weight considerations - Little or no structured mean of addressing the potential problems during HAZOP or QRA studies This loss of containment can have serious safety, environmental and cost implications. Identifying the risk areas linked to vibration-induced fatigue is becoming a necessity for socially responsible companies.

Ratkaisu

What is Process System Integrity (PSI)? To address the problem of vibration-induced fatigue, Bureau Veritas has worked closely with the oil and gas industry as well as the regulatory authorities to develop a risk assessment methodology. New facilities as well as those already in production can benefit from this method. For new facilities, PSI can identify pipework at risk from vibration fatigue in the design phase, so the appropriate modifications can be made before the facility is put into operation. PSI can also be applied to operational facilities, particularly where de-bottlenecking is being performed. In such cases, the results of a formal risk assessment, supported by field measurement studies, can often completely eliminate potential failures due to fatigue. If other high-risk areas are identified, PSI can be applied to form a rational basis from which to formulate suitable mitigating inspection programs.

Usein kysyttyä

  • What is a piping vibration risk assessment?

    It is a risk-based assessment procedure that identifies where piping fatigue failure might occur. It can be enhanced with targeted measurement surveys and detailed simulation techniques to quantify fatigue lifecyles.

  • When can a risk assessment be made?

    During the design and construction phases of a new project, or at any point during plant operation for an existing installation.

  • Isn’t a vibration survey sufficient?

    Piping vibration varies with changes to process and operational conditions, and therefore a vibration survey is only a snapshot of the piping vibration at the time of the survey. The risk assessment approach takes into account a plant’s full operational and process scope.

  • Can the methodology be integrated into my piping integrity management system?

    Yes – the procedures, tools and techniques used can be embedded into a company’s integrity management system to provide an on-going assurance process with respect to vibration-induced fatigue.
