Problem-Failure Codes

Definition

Problem-Failure Codes are used to categorize equipment problems and failures.  Problem codes identify the observed equipment issue, such as a leak from a faucet or the overheating of a pump. Failure codes identify why the equipment failed, such as a worn seal. We have over 79,000 Problem-Failure Codes for 1,327 asset classes in our Problem-Failure Code Library. We provide the codes in flat and fault-tree formats. See an example from our Library of Problem-Failure Codes below, or download your free samples today.

Problem Codes

Problem Codes define the initial problem with the asset. The following are Problem Codes associated with the Heat Exchanger asset class.

CodeDescription
HE-P-01Overheating
HE-P-02Leaking
HE-P-03Poor operation
HE-P-04Cracked
HE-P-05Corrosion
HE-P-06Erosion
HE-P-07Excessive load
HE-P-08Stream pressure loss
HE-P-09Fouling deposition
HE-P-10Heat exchanger equipment faulty
......

Failure Codes

Failure Codes designate “what” failed on the asset and “why.” This code allows further analysis to be conducted on the part or component that failed. The following are Failure Codes associated with the Heat Exchanger asset class.  

CodeDescription
HE-F-01Anchor bolts loose/cracked
HE-F-02Anti-corrosion equipment faulty
HE-F-03Baffle plate corroded/eroded
HE-F-04Baffle plate cracked/damaged
HE-F-05Cladding damaged/missing
HE-F-06Coating-internal eroded/torn/peeled
HE-F-07Distributor broken
HE-F-08Distributor eroded
HE-F-09Distributor plugged/restricted
HE-F-10Exchanger contamination (dirt, sand, grit, water)
