Join General Manager of Dunham Engineering, Travis Tatum, to discuss the requirements of API 653, including Annex H, regarding the use of similar service assessments to responsibly extend inspection intervals...
API 653 inspection intervals are determined largely by corrosion rate data from prior inspections. However, for candidate tanks with no inspection history, data from control tanks that are in similar service may be utilized.
Join General Manager of Dunham Engineering, Travis Tatum, to discuss the requirements of API 653, including Annex H, regarding the use of similar service assessments to responsibly extend inspection intervals, while ensuring tank integrity and compliance. Information required for a similar service assessment, cathodic protection considerations, and use of traditional and advanced NDT methods will be presented. Also probabilistic and other additional evaluation methods will be presented for properly analyzing non-matching assessment criteria.
