These processes consist of capital-intensive units that must be maintained to provide reliable performance. Failure to adequately maintain these assets can have a detrimental effect to not only operations and profit, but also to worker safety. Determining the indeterminate https://hydrocarbonprocessing.com/magazine/2021/april-2021/process-optimization/determining-the-indeterminate Standards such as API, ASME and NFPA are applied widely in the refining industry.
