Initial Inspection

What is your practice/recommendations regarding the first inspection after Initial commissioning of a new unit/refinery.
After how many months/years of initial commissioning.

RE: Initial Inspection

Dear mka4281,

Check with the EPC contractor / licensor. There is a warranty inspection after 6 months / 1 year of commissioning.

Anyway, the first inspection is very important as it would provide the baseline corrosion data for all static equipment.

RE: Initial Inspection

What you mean to say is 'first inspections'. Many first inspections.

RE: Initial Inspection

If you build a new refinery or new unit or even put a new equipment in your unit, you need to set a plan for your first inspection of this refinery/unit/equipment. After how many months/years in-service you have to inspect it. This is very important to reveal any deficiencies in the design , manufacturing , installation ….etc.
