Forecasting where and when infrastructure improvements should occur is critical to a companys product quality and performance reliability. Asset longevity is an important part of that overall planning and life cycle assessment.
When is a storage tank going to need repairs due to corrosion? How long will your steam pipes hold up before they start getting dangerous leaks and need to be replaced?
That is important information that most equipment manufacturers provide estimates for, but once that equipment is in operation other factors can decrease the expected asset lifespan. Some of these include:
- Insulation that causes corrosion
- Improper operation
- Heat stress
- Failure to perform preventative maintenance
- UV or weathering damage
Protecting equipment from a reduced lifespan and increasing asset longevity can save organizations a significant amount of money. Besides the obvious cost savings from being able to get more service life before a replacement is needed, theres also a savings in maintenance costs and reduced risk of potential profit loss from unexpected downtime.
Syneffex Coatings Help Improve Asset Longevity
