Conference on Asset Integrity Management, Inspection & NDT in Delhi India

Asset Integrity Management (AIM), Corrosion Control and Advanced Inspection & Nondestructive Testing are vital in managing Industrial assets effectively to gain maximum value, profitability and returns while ensuring smooth operation of the plant without any failures, leaks, accident’s, unplanned shut downs, maintaining Integrity, Safety & Reliability of the Assets.

The understanding of Asset Management (AM) incorporates Design, Maintenance, Inspection,
Process, Operations and Management concepts, since all these disciplines impact the integrity of
infrastructure and equipment. The concepts of AIM (i.e. design, technical and operation integrity)
is moving along with the approaches to Operational Excellence, Corrosion Control & Monitoring,
Advanced Inspection & NDT techniques, Risk Based Inspection & Maintenance, Failure Mode Effect
and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), and Maintenance Planning of static process equipment, rotating
equipment, mitigating the challenges caused by human factors, effective project management
strategies and etc.

Around the globe, asset owners are facing major challenges to maintain aging assets and to ensure
their reliability. Therefore, Advanced Inspection & Nondestructive Testing plays an essential role to
ensure reliable operation and to meet the increasing world energy & growth demands.

To attain these major challenges, two concurrent events are planned to conduct on “Asset Integrity Management & Corrosion Control (AIM 2018)” and Advanced Techniques & Practices of “Inspection, NDT & Monitoring” (INM 2018) on 10-11 August 2018 in Hotel Holiday Inn, Mayur Vihar, New Delhi. The AIM 2018 & INM 2018 are the only Technical Conference in India, designed to address the main challenges in asset management and to help you effectively manage your equipment so that you achieve long term plant reliability, efficiency, safety and profitability.
The conference provides an effective platform for Asset Integrity, Inspection & NDE, Corrosion, Operation & Maintenance professionals from all over the world to interact, share and exchange
their experiences. We welcome you all to be an integral part of these initiative.

Call for Abstracts:

Technical Committee of AIM and INM invites authors to submit technical papers on specified technical topics for Oral Presentation or Poster Paper during conference. Authors are requested to submit abstracts not exceeding 300 words and as per the guidelines. Please send your abstract to:
contact@assetintegritymanagement.org; contact@inspectionandndt.com

Notes for Editors

About BINDT

The British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) is a UK-based professional engineering institution working to promote the advancement of the science and practice of non-destructive testing (NDT), condition monitoring (CM), diagnostic engineering and all other materials and quality testing disciplines. Internationally recognised, it is concerned with the education, training and certification of its members and all those engaged in NDT and CM and through its publications and annual conferences and events it disseminates news of the latest advances in the science and practice of the subjects. For further information about the NDT Institute and its activities, visit http://www.bindt.org


What are NDT and CM?
Non-destructive testing is the branch of engineering concerned with all methods of detecting and evaluating flaws in materials. Flaws can affect the serviceability of a material or structure, so NDT is important in guaranteeing safe operation as well as in quality control and assessing plant life. The flaws may be cracks or inclusions in welds and castings or variations in structural properties, which can lead to a loss of strength or failure in service. The essential feature of NDT is that the test process itself produces no deleterious effects on the material or structure under test. The subject of NDT has no clearly defined boundaries; it ranges from simple techniques such as the visual examination of surfaces, through the well-established methods of radiography, ultrasonic testing and magnetic particle crack detection, to new and very specialised methods such as the measurement of Barkhausen noise and positron annihilation spectroscopy.

Condition monitoring (CM) aims to ensure plant efficiency, productivity and reliability by monitoring and analysing the wear of operating machinery and components to provide an early warning of impending failure, thereby reducing costly plant shutdown. Condition monitoring originally used mainly vibration and tribology analysis techniques but now encompasses new fields such as thermal imaging, acoustic emission and other non-destructive techniques. The diagnostic and prognostic elements, in addition to increasingly sophisticated signal processing, is using trends from repeated measurements in time intervals of days and weeks.
