AIMS Division - Asset Integrity Management Services

Sentinel Integrity Solutions’ Asset Integrity Management Services (AIMS) was developed to optimize the consistency, accuracy and manageability of any facility’s current Mechanical Integrity (MI) program, adapting standardization and a methodology of continuity to meet each client’s specific needs.

AIMS begins by ensuring that the MI software your facility utilizes is accurately performing the calculations needed to calculate minimum thickness, long/short term corrosion rates and remaining life used to predict future inspection intervals. AIMS will evaluate your MI software’s basic design and corrosion monitoring variables. MI software packages come with a basic set of generic variables that need to be edited or modified to reflect the facility’s actual equipment and the inspection department’s SOP’s. It is absolutely critical that these calculations are accurate and consistent throughout the program. Sentinel Integrity Solutions provides a complete data set that will cover virtually every material, nozzle, or pipe schedule found within a client’s facility, regardless of the facility's MI software application.

AIMS objectively evaluates every vessel, piping circuit, storage tank or relief device and only appropriate inspection strategies are applied. The numerous CML discrepancies that previously existed within your record set will be resolved, and only CML’s that provide relevant corrosion data will be maintained. After, we will deactivate CML’s that provide no relevant corrosion data. We will perform all overdue external inspections and work closely with your inspectors so that overdue internal inspections, non-destructive evaluations (NDE) or special inspections are planned to be performed during the next scheduled outage.

The AIM System (AIMS) will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of virtually all inspection activities and is easily maintained by your resident inspectors. Our staff of API inspectors has extensive OSHA PSM experience, and we specialize in the optimization or full implementation of Mechanical Integrity Programs. Our system is capable of optimizing any type of MI Program in any petrochemical facility.
