and federal legislation requires the safe operation of pressure equipment to be
ensured. The deregulation of the Government Inspection Sector now means that
owners and operators are responsible to ensure their pressure equipment is safe
for use by meeting several legislative requirements.
these duties are:
equipment with hazard levels A-C as per AS4343 are to be registered with the
state governing body
equipment including safety relief valves are to be inspected by competent
personnel at set regular intervals as per AS3788
·Commission boilers or pressure equipment safely
Reliability Inspections can help with all of the above owner duties by
inspecting pressure plant equipment with qualified inspection personnel,
identifying hazard levels and giving advice on how to register pressure
equipment. Inspection is normally carried out via a frequency based inspection as determined by the relevant Australian
Standard, but can include a mixture of risk based inspection where required.
Other inspection techniques may be necessary to help determine pressure
equipment integrity, such as ultrasonic wall thickness measurement which can
also be carried out in-house by qualified personnel. ARI have AICIP certified
personnel to perform all your pressure equipment inspection needs on boilers,
vessels and pressure piping.
