Taking a trip down memory lane with this presentation by our president, Jeff Eisenman, from our 2022 Plant Engineers Forum, Jeff discusses the importance of maintaining design integrity from procurement through installation.
During the design process, design factors are applied to manage uncertainty, unknowns and unexpected events. These design factors assume proper design and fabrication, but do not consider things like errors, misalignments, tolerances or low properties. The design factors can cover a lot of issues, but what is the REAL safety factor? Our President, Jeff Eisenman, discusses potential deficiencies, their impacts and options to minimize risks to reliability.
