Piping Systems Integrity: Management review

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

SUMMARY

Deals with the development of a high level strategy for improving pipework integrity on industrial sites in the UK. This project was intended to develop proposals that would help companies reduce the occurrence of pipework failure. The report identifies key areas where improvements, that should help to reduce incidents of pipework failures, could be made.

This study has examined commonly available information on pipework, reviewed typical failures of pipework and has drawn upon practical experience from the chemical industry. This study has used a 'life cycle' model of integrity to assess findings and present recommendations.

For pipework the life cycle starts with scope definition, continues through design, construction, operation, and maintenance, includes modification and repair, and ends with decommissioning and disposal.

This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
