RISKWISE for Process Plant

RiskWISE® for Process Plant

Advanced Risk Based Inspection (RBI) software for optimising plant inspection

  • ASME/API-compliant software for optimising inspection and maintenance intervals based on API RP 580 and API 581
  • allows operators to establish inspection plans as an alternative to the traditional requirements in, for example, API 510
  • based on generally accepted risk engineering principles for oil and gas production, petroleum refining and chemical plant
  • high level of ongoing technology development by subjecting the software to the scrutiny of a worldwide group of end-users
  • evaluates the distribution of the risk of failure for all types of process equipment (pressure vessels, piping, rotating equipment, valves, etc.)
  • provides estimates of remaining life for all API RP 571 in-service damage mechanisms (corrosion, mechanical, metallurgical, high temperature, etc.)
  • designed for use by plant personnel so that implementation and maintenance are not dependent on the use of external RBI consultants
  • TWI´s code-compliant RBI software helps focus your inspection resource allocation and lower your failure risks
  • TWI provides training, support and practical advice for its software tools, from leading authors of the world´s best practice RBI guides
Key features
  • highly user friendly, not 'black box' - ensures buy in
  • audit team approach - accommodates quantitative as well as qualitative input
  • API 580 and ASME compliant
  • inspection frequency based on formal reliability rules - remaining life indicator (RLI)
  • focus/defocus module - facilitates selection of optimum mitigation measures
  • fully auditable output - acceptability to insurers/regulators
  • links to data management systems
  • RiskWISE is intuitively designed so that it can be easily learned, and the risk model allows qualitative (Level 1) as well as quantitative (Level 3) input
  • includes the full API RP 571 technical modules for all relevant in-service damage mechanisms (description, affected materials and equipment, critical factors, appearance, prevention, mitigation, inspection and monitoring)
  • option to perform full assessment in accordance with API 581

  • users can undertake a `what if´ likelihood and consequence appraisal of each component, to determine the minimum level of inspection and maintenance, to mitigate the risk of failure and optimise the current inspection programme
  • provides an indication of remaining life for all damage mechanisms, based on an implicit time dimension of risk (risk of failure generally increases over time) which is the only rational basis for setting safe operating periods between inspections
  • English, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish language versions available
