Your journey starts at the Virtual Reliability Development Summit

As a part of IDCON's Shutdown Optimization Program, shutdown (SD) best practices are reviewed to safely reduce shutdown duration and reduce costs.

Have you considered utilizing any of these practices for your plant SDs?

  1. Are all utilities requirements for SD and SU calculated and defined (flare, blow down, steam boiler, plant air (compressors), water, nitrogen, etc.,
  2. Tag isolation valves that will be exercised at the SD - grease valves
  3. Develop a detailed SD and SU schedule that defines when mechanical resources are required (i.e. handover, hand-back, blinding, etc.)
  4. Are function tests completed prior to SU - including emergency block valves, emergency SD devices, control valves, heat exchangers, etc.?
  5. Prepare flange make-up and torqueing procedures and provide training
  6. Have blind and job locations been tagged in the field with weatherproof tagging
