CEN Workshop ‘The Standardization of the Impression Creep Test’

 

Small sample testing in general, and impression creep in particular, offers the opportunity for owner/operators of power generation equipment to perform non-invasive testing of their high value equipment to determine risk or risk-ranking as they look to prioritize maintenance activities. Small sample concepts such as impression creep afford the opportunity to quantify high temperature creep behaviour relevant to high energy piping; high temperature valves; high pressure steam turbines; gas compressor, combustor, and turbine; and other critical components. However, in order to use this data in a consistent manner and have confidence in the determination of risk – either through comparative ranking or through component-specific life prediction, this test method needs to be internationally recognized and demonstrated to be consistent.
