Standard Reliability Data for Pumps and Drivers, Valve Actuators, and Valves
|Publication Date:||1 January 1984|
This guide applies to reliability data of pumps and driver, valve actuators, and valves.
Purpose. This guide is intended to establish methods of collecting and presenting reliability data for use in reliability calculations as outlined in IEEE Std 362-1975.
The data contained in Appendix D are intended for the use of system reliability engineers or design engineers and are derived from the tables presented in ANSI/IEEE Std 600-1984. The data are normally used by design engineers in models developed by the analysts. The objectives of such models and calculations are as follows.
(1) Determination of system adequacy (failure or success probability is only one measure of system adequacy; the designer should balance reliability with other system considerations).
(2) Evaluation of system design alternatives.
(3) Evaluation of, or contribution to, the development of system test intervals, maintenance programs or operating procedures, or both.
(4) To contribute to probabilistic risk assessment studies.
