Article 4, API 579-1: Fitness-For-Service (FFS) – Pitting Assessment

If you answered yes to these questions, or if pitting corrosion due to other factors is occurring in your plant, an API FFS pitting assessment may provide an alternative to costly repairs. Other examples of Type B Components include the reinforcement zone of conical transitions, branch connections, and flanges.

These are components that have a design equation that specifically relate pressure or liquid fill height, and other loads, to a required wall thickness e. Several of the assessment methodologies are no longer shown in full, e.

A limited discussion will be presented on advanced methods of assessment. Available Positions Apply On-line. Thursday, 30 March Reliability Improvement 29 post s. Pitting is defined by API as localized regions of metal loss characterized by a pit diameter on the order of the plate thickness or less. Read more about the software HERE. Fordelene med et abonnement:. In addition, evaluation techniques are provided for condition assessment of equipment including resistance to brittle fracture, long-term creep damage, and fire damage.


These components have a code design procedure to determine an acceptable configuration. Litigation Support 3 post s. In addition to the many clarifications, updated references to codes and standards, several changes and additions have been made to improve the standard in its most recent update. Materials Degradation and Corrosion 16 post s. For example, material data needed for creep assessments – Part 10 — are now found in Annex 10B.

Some of the limitations for nozzle assessments are:. What is required Who is responsible How is data obtained and organized Remaining strength factor Need for in-service monitoring inspection frequency Remaining Life Determination Brittle Fracture Resistance: Our wealth of 597-1 and experience enables us to provide authoritative, practical, knowledge based answers, and to solve your problems.

Becht Engineering has extensive experience and expertise in the conduct of Fitness-For-Service. These are components that do not have a design equation that specifically relate pressure or liquid fill height, and other loads, to a required wall thickness.

This course has already completed.

In addition, both qualitative and quantitative guidance for establishing remaining life and in-service margins for continued operation of equipment are provided in regards to future operating conditions and environmental compatibility. Did a recent external inspection on an exchanger reveal pitting corrosion under the insulation? However, if the pit depth exceeds the corrosion allowance, then a pitting assessment should be considered.

This 57-1 has broad application since the assessment procedures are based on allowable stress methods and plastic collapse loads for non-crack-like flaws, and the Failure Assessment Diagram FAD Approach for crack-like 59-1. In this third installment, we will take a look at general metal loss GML in nozzles.


Details of the process, as well as the nomenclature, can be found apj API Part 6. NOK 10 ,00 eks. GML Level 2 assessments are permitted only if certain conditions are satisfied. General Interest 4 post s.

The complete list of limitations in Parts 2 and 6 of API should be reviewed before proceeding with a Level 1 pitting assessment. Heavy Lift 14 post s. Key Contacts Becht Info Request. Below is a summary of the assessment process. If the depth of all the pits is less than the specified corrosion allowance, then a pitting assessment is not required.
