Assignment of applicable damage mechanisms is critical to managing fixed equipment inspection. This webinar provides an overview of the expert-based Damage Screening tool that E²G has developed to simplify the implementation of RBI programs for oil refinery units. The Damage Screening tool uses the Damage Solver (also available in E²G software DamagePlus™ and eec: Damage) to help identify potential damage mechanisms.

The Damage Solver is based on API 571: Damage Mechanisms Affecting Fixed Equipment in the Refining Industry. Furthermore, the Damage Screening tool will estimate damage susceptibilities for corrosion and cracking based on industry experts’ judgment. As a result, the Damage Screening tool is a simple and easy-to-use aid to help implementers with limited damage mechanism experience assign damage for refining and chemical equipment.
