Fitness for Service Evaluation

Industry experts have determined that routine thickness measurements alone may not be enough to reliably predict the structural integrity of in-service equipment containing flaws or damage. BCE’s Fitness-For-Service (FFS) evaluations using the API 579 Standard are an integral part of your company’s efforts to comply with the mechanical integrity portion of OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) regulations. Our FFS evaluations more precisely indicate whether operating equipment is fit for its intended use or if fabrication defects or in-service deterioration threaten its integrity.

In addition, BCE’s analyses of your existing infrastructure can help to ensure the safety of plant personnel and the public while aging equipment continues to operate and can help save you time and money by:

  • avoiding costly down time
  • due to unforeseen incidents
  • extending equipment life
  • enhancing equipment performance
  • enabling you to more accurately
  • plan for future capacity and needs

BCE is your partner to provide a sound basis for decisions to continue to run as is or to alter, repair, monitor, retire, or replace in-service equipment. Professional evaluations are available for pressure vessels, storage tanks, boilers, heat exchangers, and piping to help insure the integrity, and project the remaining service life of your equipment.
