Application of Reliability Centered Maintenance in a Hydrocracker
The paper presents a case study: the review of the reliability centered maintenance (RCM) methodology realized in a hydrocracker. Applying of the reliability centered maintenance methodology, it finds 495 failure modes and ranks risk priorities for the 98 rotating machineries in the hydrocracker. According to the results of risk analysis, it provides customized maintenance strategies for each component of the hydrocracker, which would improve the safety of the hydrocracker effectively. The review provides helpful reference for other equipments in refinery factories.
