ASME – Most people take the safe operation of power plants for granted, and with good reason.
Behind every power plant are managers who know how likely it is that equipment will fail and what might happen if it did. By closely monitoring the big-risk areas and staying alert to signs of impending equipment failure, they ensure their plant will continue to deliver the electricity, fuel, and steam that light and shape our world.
Key to their success is risk-based inspection (RBI), which uses failure probabilities to determine how often to inspect each power plant component. It makes more effective use of resources, plants operate safely, and companies save money.
It’s no wonder then that RBI has been used with great success around the globe.
