This paper presents a methodology for conducting damage mechanism reviews (DMRs) that can help operating companies maintain equipment integrity by providing a foundational basis on which to manage and mitigate common damage mechanisms that may effect plant equipment. The DMR methodology allows ammonia-related industries to draw on recent API recommended practices to provide a holistic management resource for the plant’s Mechanical Integrity Process Safety Management programs. The assessment methodology is demonstrated for typical process unit equipment in an ammonia plant. BakerRisk’s Asset Mechanical Integrity Plan identifies the potential damage mechanisms based on known process parameters, selects the appropriate
inspection methods, and communicates relevant factors and possible mitigation options as a resource for the site.
