In recent years, process safety management system compliance audits have revealed that organizations often have significant opportunities for improving their Mechanical Integrity programs. As part of the Center for Chemical Process Safety’s Guidelines series, Guidelines for Mechanical Integrity Systems provides practitioners a basic familiarity of mechanical integrity concepts and best practices. The book recommends efficient approaches for establishing a successful MI program.
“…an excellent overview of all aspects of mechanical integrity systems…should be very useful for any engineer…” (Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries
, January 2007)”…a thorough introduction to MI Systems for managers, quality control engineers and those who are responsible for maintaining systems.” (E-STREAMS
, September 2007)
Excellent technical reference for anyone trying to implement or upgrade a mechanical integrity program. The section on equipment specific integrity management was exactly what I was looking for. It summarizes input from multiple standards and codes to provide a clear basis for how to justify what, how frequently and why you are doing the things in your mechanical integrity program. I wish someone had told me about this reference six months ago, it would have saved me a lot of work.
About the Author
Since 1985, the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS)
has been the world leader in developing and disseminating information on process safety management and technology. CCPS, an industry technology alliance of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), has published over 80 books in its process safety guidelines and process safety concepts series.A team of CCPS member volunteer experts guided the development of this book, which was compiled by Randal Montgomery and Andrew Remson under contract. Messrs. Montgomery and Remson have helped facilities develop and implement MI programs and have instructed hundreds of engineers and process safety professionals on the topic.
