PlantTrack App now available
Plant engineers must often answer ‘what damage is this piece of equipment susceptible to, and what can we do about it?’ or ‘how much longer can this component continue operating’? A free app is now available in both the Google Play store and the Apple App store to help answer these and other equipment integrity questions (see figure 1).
The PlantTrack App is a plant integrity assistant that provides life calculators, damage mechanism guides, technical articles, lab sample submittal form, and other functions relevant for plant engineers. While it is geared towards fossil (both coal and gas) power plants, it has applicability for equipment at other plants as well. For subscribers to the PlantTrack web application, the mobile app also provides a dashboard view of inspection history, action items, damage tracking results, etc. Users of the PlantTrack software will recognize some of the features from the ‘PlantTrack Tools’ that have previously been available through a web browser.
