Engineering Failures and there lessons
28 Feb - 1 March 2013
When a part breaks unexpectedly, it usually sets off a flurry of activities.
Critical component failures often make the headlines, whether occurring at sea, underground, in midair or in production plants. Faulty pipes, valves, shafts, gears, couplings and other engineered components give rise to safety, environmental, productivity and financial issues, some catastrophic.
In a recent survey, it may shock you to learn that it was estimated that a staggering 80% of the maintenance budget gets eaten up dealing with these ongoing types of engineering failures and no matter what company you work for or industry you are in that is a huge amount of money!
Unexpected failures can be prevented if more people know and understand the degradation and failure mechanisms of power plant and refinery equipment, why they happen and how to prevent them from resulting in catastrophic failure
