Fitness for Service (FFS) analyses are performed on mature equipment that may have degraded in service, in order to identify whether it is safe to operate the equipment. If a vessel has seen damage (general corrosion, localized corrosion, cracking, out of roundness, etc.) as specified in API 579, PinnacleART can perform Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 FFS analyses as needed to determine the vessel’s fitness for service and provide recommendations for repair or replacement.

FFS analyses can help facilities optimize their costs by understanding whether equipment can be safely operated until a more permanent solution can be implemented. On the other hand, FFS can also help facilities manage risk and safety, by understanding when an immediate repair or replacement is needed.
