FITNESS FOR SERVICE

Fitness for service is the ability to demonstrate the structural integrity of an in-service component even though it contains a flaw. It serves as a rational basis for defining flaw acceptance limits, and allows engineers to distinguish between benign and dangerous flaws.

About

The reason these examinations are performed is because even if a piece of equipment has a crack or other defect, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s unfit for service. Most equipment can continue in service despite small flaws, and to repair or replace equipment that can still be used would be an unnecessary and costly expense. Not only that, but unnecessary weld repairs can actually do more harm than good, as the quality of the new weld can often be less than the original one.
