New RBI Tool- ERAS (Equipment Risk Analysis System)
Reliability is very important in the Chemical Process Industries (CPI). A faulty piece of equipment can cause costly downtime; therefore RBI (Risk Base Inspection) has been adopted widely by CPI around the work to keep the equipment uptime. Equipment Risk Analysis System (ERAS) is a new RBI tool which developed by Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. “Mitsui Phenols Singapore PTE. LTD.” (MPS) has implemented the sophisticated maintenance method ERAS to secure the safe and stable operation within economically domination since Y2015. As a result, MPS successfully achieved both equipment trouble & maintenance cost reduction through ERAS. ERAS is a tool which built based on RBI. It is applied in plant maintenance system to select the suitable equipment inspection method and decide the best equipment inspection interval. RBI is a long journey which need consume a lot of time and effort to continuously build equipment maintenance history data pool. But ERAS can be applied as routing work to analyze the short period equipment maintenance data through well-established programing.
