Instrumentation maintenance standards, procedures etc.

Instrumentation maintenance standards, procedures etc.

Instrumentation maintenance standards, procedures etc.

I will need soon to write start-up, maintenance, calibration and inspection procedure for a new petro-chemical instrumentation departement.

Any electronic literature or web sites will be welcome.


RE: Instrumentation maintenance standards, procedures etc.

hi chop
 get the loop gospel together asap then take the manufacturers recomendations and collate  them. I think you have a big job ahead of you.

   But while sites and software packages will give you an outline QS9000 ISO 9000 and probably most of the other systems will ask you to justify and review your frequency. To do this you will have to refer to the listing of your instruments and the manufacturers recommendatrions.

  Warning - anything extra you put in at this stage will come back and bite you on the **se. If you don't need it in your system don't put it in. seperate one offs (eg loop intergrity checks for commissioning) from your maintenance systems. Once it's in you re stuck with it.

  Ok that probably hasn't helped you directly but I haven't found a site on the web etc to set up a system so if you have any joy please post the info


RE: Instrumentation maintenance standards, procedures etc.

Hi Don, This ISA site is interesting for calibration things.

Research Report - Mass Customization Placing Design in the Customers Hands
Products come in all shapes and sizes, and customers demand solutions tailored to their needs. With mass customization software, these two facts can be reconciled in an automated, customer-facing experience called a product configurator. In this engineering.com research report, we examine the different levels of mass customization with the pyramid of product configurators. Taking a look at real-world case studies, we discover how the highest level of the pyramid can enable true engineering automation, saving time and increasing customer satisfaction. Download Now
Research Report - Test and Simulation Survey
We at engineering.com continually hear how engineers and designers will be doing simulation, such as FEA and CFD, and that they will be doing it early in the design cycle. Is this wishful thinking? We found out what it is really like in industry. Read more now. Download Now
