Compare notes with operators and vendors in a discussion on what RHCU equipment has the most risk, and what has the most reward.
- Look at equipment from the perspective of maintenance, reliability, operations, instrument and electrical, machinists, pressure equipment integrity (PEI), risk-based inspection (RBI), etc
- What cleaning, inspecting, lubricating, testing, replacing do you never avoid.
- You have to spend the extra time and money on “X” because we can’t afford to have it fail.
Next we’ll have a wish list discussion. For example,
- what instrumentation has enabled you to be more accurate or increase production, or
- what valve has lowered your safety risk, or
- what equipment allows you to be more versatile, or
- I wish we had installed “X” so we could do “Y” or
- what are some other examples.
And if there is time and interest, there could be a discussion from a capital dollars approach, what revamps or upgrades make the most sense with current needs and in today’s economy.
