Best Practices for Managing Aging Plants: Replacement of Equipment in Aging Plants with Cost Competitive Improved Materials of Construction; A Best-Practice Framework for Managing Aging Infrastructure; and Methodology for Comparing Asset Integrity Management Programs.
RBI: 25 Years of Risk-Based Inspection; Safe Operation of Aging Hydrogen Generation Plants Using RBI and IOWs; and Risk Based Repair of Refinery Structures.
Specific Assets Management: Degradation, Intergranular Cracking and Rupture of Type 304L SS in a Nitric Acid Plant; In-Service Repair of a Leaking Steam Methane Reformer Outlet Pigtail; and Corrosion Studies & Their Influence on Material of Construction Selection.
Inspection: Proactive Integrity Management of Aging Plant; Management of Complex Facilities Using Robots; and Best Practices for Inspection and Data Analysis for Management of Aging Plants.
Materials Damage Mechanisms: Materials Damage Mechanisms; Managing CUI in Aging Refinery/ Petrochemical Plants; and High Temperature Hydrogen Attack.
Welding: 5 Steps to Successful Repairs and Hot Tap Thermal Analysis Case Studies.
Non-Metallic Materials: Managing Aging Plants: Non-metallics; Cost-Effective Polymeric Heavy Corrosion Systems in Aging Plant; and Best Practices of Specialty Polymeric and Flake Glass Liners for Aged Steel and Concrete Tank.
Special Topics: Process Electrical Safety Compliance; Managing Aging Controls; Monitoring and Repair of Aging Reactive Metal Equipment; and Managing an Aging Workforce.
