Tracerco LCM - Reliable and Effective Asset Life Cycle Management

Tracerco provides a range of advanced nucleonic instrumentation to the process industry, including instruments for level, density and phase measurement. Custom designed to meet the needs of specific applications, our instruments provide accurate level, density and interface visualisation, allowing operators to obtain a better understanding of vessel fluid dynamics in order to maximise throughput, enhance safety and reduce downtime.

Life Cycle Management
As part of our ongoing commitment to customer service, Tracerco provide all manner of technical support for our instrumentation via our Life Cycle Management (LCM) Initiative. Through support contracts, source recycling and upgrades to obsolete equipment, operators can be confident in the knowledge of their asset condition - mitigating any uncertainty or safety risks.

Support Contracts

To enable operators to increase uptime and maximise production, whilst meeting the demanding needs of regulatory compliance, Tracerco offer both long and short term support contracts that are tailored to customer's assets and field requirements. The benefits of support contracts include a dedicated account manager who can provide fast and effective after sales technical support, programming, testing and research on behalf of customers, and scheduled on site service visits to suit operational requirements.

With an extensive network of offices, laboratories and calibration facilities across the globe, 24 hour remote systems support via telephone and email also ensures that operators have quick access to critical information anywhere at any time. Additionally, one of our highly experienced and qualified team of service engineers will also be on standby should there be an immediate requirement for maintenance optimisation or support.

Equipment and Source Upgrades / Replacements

Tracerco can provide obsolescence reviews to identify any risks to customers continued uninterrupted safe operation. Radiological critical examinations following installation of equipment or following changes that may affect the system, along with annual / bi-annual function testing and inspection of measurement system components will ensure continued full operability and regulatory compliance.

The assessment of radioactive sources at or near to recommended working life will also allow operators to determine the viability of their asset, thus enabling continual production and use of Tracerco instrumentation.

In addition to re-calibrations and trip testing of equipment, we can establish present day accuracy of your system through performance assessments and non-intrusive validation services. Such information can give operators confidence in determining the position of level or interfaces within an application and ensure existing equipment continues to meet requirements now and in the future. Regular performance assessments also provide operators with the ability to efficiently maintain equipment to cost effectively manage spares or identify the need for upgrades to maximise asset life.

Decommissioning

If assets are assessed and found to be no longer viable, decommissioning planning and execution must begin. The important factor here is to ensure the route taken mitigates risk and that the process is carried out safely and cost effectively, whilst considering the best interests of the environment.

Tracerco can remove any instrument during decommissioning. With a number of in-house radiation consultants, Tracerco can also manage and remove, recycle and replace radiation sources, as well as provide advice on immediate and long term source requirements. For Tracerco installed equipment, operators also have the option to store sources for short or long periods of time.
