the ever-increasing focus on Water Resource Management it is becoming increasingly
more important to ensure that the performance of every plant is properly
gauged. One of the best ways of ensuring that this is done is by the regular
assessment and monitoring of a plant. At Enviro Metsi we achieve this by
a simple yet effective process:
are conducted by a Class V Process Controller.
The inspector would walk through the plant, identify and record issues
relating to operational, civil, mechanical & electrical and health &
safety aspects on site. This is done
together with the plant’s own Process Controllers in order to gather as much
information as possible regarding actual operational and maintenance issues
experienced on the plant.
At the start of any project, a site-specific Sampling Program is drafted in
accordance with the relevant regulations and the clients own specifications –
anything from a “Final Only” sample where the focus is solely on compliance, to
a program where every Process Unit is sampled in order to measure its specific
performance. The latter is very useful
in identifying the exact cause of a non-compliance or even identifying aspects
that could lead to non-compliances before they have repercussions on the
downstream processes. These
samples are collected during our site visits, preserved and delivered to SANAS
accredited laboratories for analyses.
information gathered during the plant inspection, laboratory analyses and
assessment is of course useless unless it is presented in an easy to use
fashion. With this in mind, we provide reports detailing the necessary
information to evaluate a plant's performance, both currently and historically. The
process followed by Enviro Metsi remains the same for routine monthly
monitoring and for Annual Plant & Process Audits. During the latter, each of the aspects is
however evaluated in much more detail than during a routine inspection, even
looking into vibration and running temperature levels of the mechanical
equipment in order to evaluate their
performance and/or possible failure.
