In addition, the term equipment is often associated with an individual piece of equipmentÂ such as a pump, compressor or vessel. The term assetÂ better reflects how equipment and its associated instrumentation, utilities and connections function together as a system and the integrity of which must be maintained holistically as a system.
The new, expanded Guidelines document includes updated information on failure modes, damage mechanisms, and good practices for managing asset integrity throughout the life cycle of a facility. Guidance and examples are provided for selecting and maintaining critical safety systems. This presentation summarizes the new Guidelines and highlights changes made from the original document.
