Reliability Data for the Process Plant Analysis

An ideal situation is to have valid historical data from the identical equipment in the same application. But in most cases, the plant-specific (e.g. hydrogen) data are unavailable, because of the expense of testing and limited historical database on equipment failure. Only a small number of hydrogen technologies, systems and components are currently in operation. To overcome this problem generic failure rate data as surrogates for or supplements to plant-specific data have been used in the study. Because of the uncertainties inherent in the risk analysis methodology, generic failure rate data are frequently adequate to identify the major risk contributors in a process or plant [8].
