Understanding how critical equipment is affected by aggressive components and operational failures can help you prevent damage and increase the lifetime of your plant. This tailored course reviews critical factors that affect the lifetime of your equipment, the various damage mechanisms at work in your plant, and how to protect equipment and maximize the lifetime of your plant as whole.
