Condition monitoring

Hello,

I have to do a condition assessment of a chemical plant component.
Can anybody suggest any stanadrd, code, by which the condition
can be assessed ?
We have UT, Thickness measurement, PT, MT, and in situ
metallography techniques.

.
start with the component/piece-part drawings and identify all critical features - load bearing/strength
barriers/leak-tightnes
mass/inertia
and so on
then relate these to properties which can be
measured sufficiently accurately

design/adapt measuring equipment to provide
each critical measurement with sufficient
frequency/maximum period between measurements

install and operate and maintain records.

and there you have it.
