Extinguish Fireproofing Risk Part 2: Q&A with Brindley Engineering on protecting infrastructure and industrial facilities – API2218

Mar 12, 2024 | Fireproofing | 0 comments

Welcome to part 2 of our Fireproofing series. Brindley Engineering sees the urgent need to protect the infrastructure of industrial facilities and ensure operability for the next generation. Brindley Engineering is passionate about proactively mitigating these risks and getting ahead of any problems before they could arise. In part 1 of this series, we learned about Brindley Engineering’s approach to post fire evaluations and fire and fireproofing technology. Today, we have one burning question to ask the team.

Q: What is API 2218? Why is it important? 

A: API 2218 is a guideline that uses facility configuration and equipment knowledge as a means of identifying potential liquid hydrocarbon release locations and extent of resulting pool fires.

API 2218 fireproofing need assessments are important to determine where fireproofing is recommended by industry standards. Brindley Engineering’s integrated engineering team of process, mechanical and structural engineers is ideally suited to assess units, determine hazard envelopes, and review active and passive systems. These evaluations typically identify areas of deteriorated fireproofing that can simply be removed (not replaced), resulting in cost savings and reduced maintenance needs.
