COMPLIMENTARY WEBINAR – RECORDING NOW AVAILABLE:
High Energy Piping ‐ Avoid Cracking Under Pressure,
Presenter: Pamela Hamblin ‐ Director of Development & Operations 4‐SYTE Systems
Thielsch Engineering, Inc.
As high energy piping systems age, the risk of piping failure increases. Prolonged operation, particularly at elevated temperatures, results in metallurgical degradation increasing the potential for cracking and crack propagation until a final failure stage is reached by the component. As a result, power plant operators have become progressively aware of the importance of condition assessments for high‐energy piping systems. The industry standard “cookie cutter” approach is not a suitable solution to maintain the integrity of high energy piping systems in today’s competitive market. Global Risk Consultants in cooperation with Thielsch Engineering hosted this one hour webinar which is now available on your tube. The webinar examined a unit specific strategic approach to piping management including the following considerations:
This comprehensive approach has resulted in avoiding both catastrophic and leak type failures for plants utilizing the strategy. Implementing a unit specific, targeted plan enables utility owners and operators to succeed in today’s competitive market by increasing the unit’s reliability and availability without sacrificing operational or environmental safety.
