A Risk Based Inspection (RBI) preventive maintanance programme: a case study
The current study has as main objective the Risk Based Inspection (RBI) method, a method of planning preventive maintenance and inspection. The (RBI) method intend to create an inspection and a maintenance program, by taking into consideration the probability of failure and the consequences that result from failure of the equipment. There are three approaches for the application of the method, depending on the desirable level of precision. These approaches are qualitative, semi quantitative, and quantitative. After the approaches of method are analyzed, it will become a case study of the qualitative and semi quantitative approach, in a heat exchanger (E102), in the unit of Ammonia, in the Phosphoric Fertilizers Industry (P.F.I.) S.A., which is found in New Karvali, Kavala, Greece.
