Attendees will explore best practices for Integrity Operating Windows (IOWs) and why they are a critical part of integrated asset management. Generally speaking, an IOW is a safe operating limit that, if exceeded, can jeopardize process equipment integrity by triggering a damage mechanism such as accelerated corrosion. Depending on the extent and duration of an IOW exceedance, the impacts may be realized quickly or surface much later in terms of reduced equipment life. Since operating parameters can change significantly over a process lifecycle, the risk of premature equipment failure due to a non-existent or inadequate IOW program increases as the facility ages.
