In order to improve plant reliability, experts must look at process engineering as an interacting system: mechanical components and materials of construction. Due to scheduling or economic constraints, reliability is treated as a separate subject outside the process boundary giving way to temporary solutions which become costly and unsafe in the long run. In order to push facilities longer between turnarounds, we must address all issues as an interacting system. This means, continuously being involved with fitness for service evaluations, equipment inspection, acoustic emission testing, and field measurements.

This presentation will go over several examples of instances where a more detailed understanding of the process has helped to improve various aspects of reliability.
