Ageing Plant: Dealing with time-based degradation of plant that can lead to safety critical failure modes, Denton, Manchester


Event Details

This course explores ‘Ageing Plant’ and the implications for personnel charged with keeping plant operating safely. Failure modes will be explained that may otherwise get overlooked. The theory will then be applied conceptually to plant and equipment to identify the maintenance policies needed to manage these failure modes.

A range of common ageing plant failure modes will be introduced, detailing the degradation mechanisms and the associated detection techniques. Electrical, Control and Instrumentation (E C & I) will also be covered as there are specific issues associated with E C & I, including obsolescence, that must be addressed.

The course will conclude with a discussion on management of Ageing Plant and the tools and systems required, such as leading and lagging measures, identification of ageing plant risks, and dealing with the conflict between the every-day urgent issues and the important but usually non-urgent consideration of ageing plant.

Ageing plant is a problem – there are estimated to be over 14 loss of containment events per year in the UK due to ageing plant, and nearly 1/3 of all EU major accident ‘loss of containment’ events relate to ageing plant.

Personnel involved with process safety policy and implementation are required by the HSE to consider ageing plant. These may include:

·       Site managers

·       Process Safety Officers

·       Production / Engineering Managers
