What is an Integrity Operating Window – IOW?

Integrity Operating Windows (IOWs) refer to predefined limits on damage mechanisms that can affect an asset’s performance. When operating variables exceed these limits, an asset might be approaching conditions that could lead to preventable damage and failure.

Within an asset integrity management (AIM) software, IOWs operate as an early and instant warning system. The AIM software sets the limits, monitors the asset, and instantly notifies you when a variable approaches the limits of the IOW.

This makes it possible to address the issue before it becomes a concern for asset failure, unplanned shutdown, or process safety.

IOWs also help improve regulatory compliance at process plants and facilities. It supports regulatory standards like American Petroleum Institute (API) Recommended Practice (RP), API 584.

Prevent Asset Failure with Antea IOW

The most powerful way to prevent asset failure before it occurs is to know that it is about to. Antea IOW will instantly notify you the moment that an asset’s operating limits exceed predefined boundaries.

From there, you can capitalize on the real-time digital twin for instant insight. Antea IOW empowers you with real-time data and one-click access to the live conditions of your assets, allowing you to monitor operating limits and be warned of any adverse situations.

It is one of the most effective tools to move from reactive maintenance to predictive maintenance.

With it, you can create custom-defined rules and boundaries and then control them via sensors. Receive immediate notifications the instant that boundaries are breached. Compliant to API 584.
