High Energy Piping (HEP) is exposed to continuous high temperatures and pressures which causes creep. Initiation and advancement of creep damage will depend on the operating temperature, pressure and years of operation. HEP is inspected for creep damage at regular intervals after creep damage becomes evident. This presentation will summarize the creep damage, its progression and the remedies to increase the life of the HEP.
