Thread: Fitness for Service

    Fitness for Service

    I am interested in conducting fitness-for-service assessments per API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. I would appreciate if any one has worked examples or copy of FFS-2 examples book.

    Hi Nabili

    I was looking for this book as well, but looks like still none of our colleagues have had access to it yet.

    Based on some of his students most frequently asked questions, Antaki emphasizes the practical applications of this ASME recommended practice. With this book readers will understand and apply API 579 in their daily work. The material is based on the authors course and presented in clear concise manor. The book demonstrates how the disciplines of stress analysis, materials engineering, and nondestructive inspection interact and apply to fitness-for-service assessment. These assessment methods apply to pressure vessels, piping, and tanks that are in service. This makes it the perfect companion book for Ellenbergers, Pressure Vessels: ASME Code Simplified as well as Ellenbergers Piping Systems and Pipeline: ASME B31 Code Simplified.

    Biographical note
    George Antaki is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. He is a member of the ASME B31 Mechanical Design Technical Committee, the ASME Post-Construction Subcommittee on Repairs and Testing, and the Joint API-ASME Task Group on Fitness-for-Service. Mr. Antaki has extensive field experience in design, inspection, integrity, and retrofit of vessels and piping systems and equipment. He resides in Aiken, South Carolina.

    A Complete Guide to ASME Recommended Practices for Assessing, Monitoring, and Maintaining Pressure Vessels and Piping

    Fitness-for-Service and Integrity of Piping Vessels and Tanks provides instruction on the latest ASME recommended practices for inspecting, evaluating, and monitoring pressure vessels and Piping.

    This handy volume annotates and explains ASME code and API inspection and fitness-for-service practices. Presented in a clear, precise manner, this comprehensive guide meticulously explains how stress analysis, materials, engineering, and nondestructive inspection affect fitness-for-service.

    The tools needed to . . .
    Inspect and categorize damage, degradation, and corrosion mechanisms
    Evaluate wall thinning, pitting, -----ing, fatigue, mechanical damage, high-temperature corrosion, and creep
    Develop and implement programs for corrective and predictive maintenance of tanks, vessels, piping, and pipelines
    Select the right repair technique and avoid pitfalls in repair welding and joining

  10. Folks

    This is NOT the book we are looking for, however it is related to fitness-for-service and a very good reference too. I'm copying some download links for you

    Keith Escoe, "Piping and Pipelines Assessment Guide, Volume 1 "
    Gulf Professional Publishing | 2006 | ISBN: 0750678801 | 560 pages | PDF | 3,9 MB

    Whether it's called "fixed equipment" (at ExxonMobil), "stationary equipment" (at Shell), or "static equipment" (in Europe), this type of equipment is the bread and butter of any process plant. Used in the petrochemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, food processing industry, paper industry, and the manufacturing process industries, stationary equipment must be kept operational and reliable for companies to maintain production and for employees to be safe from accidents. This series, the most comprehensive of its kind, uses real-life examples and time-tested rules of thumb to guide the mechanical engineer through issues of reliability and fitness-for-service.

    This volume on piping and pipeline assessment is the only handbook that the mechanical or pipeline engineer needs to assess pipes and pipelines for reliability and fitness-for-service.

    * Provides essential insight to make informed decisions on when to run, alter, repair, monitor, or replace equipment
    * How to perform these type of assessments and calculations on pipelines is a 'hot' issue in the petrochemical industry at this time
    * There is very little information on the market right now for pipers and pipeliners with regard to pipe and pipeline fitness-for-service
