MAYRA DE LA C., Troncoso-Fleitas  y  ACOSTA-PALMER, Héctor R.. Maintenance on the reliability and availability of steam boiler systems. Ingeniería Mecánica [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.2, pp.140-150. ISSN 1815-5944.

This paper has as objective to develop and to group the main findings of safety detected in Steam Boiler Systems that influence in its reliability and availability and they are caused by weaknesses in the function maintenance. Findings have been identified by means of the application of Hazard Identification Techniques, HIT, like Safety Revision, HAZOP Analysis, What if..? Analysis and others methodologies and techniques available, applied to more than a thirty of where the Steam Boiler Systems have fulfilled functions in support to the production or services. Grouping and analyzing these findings, problems or deviations of safety have revealed that, independently of the grade of safety culture presents in the facility, they have common causes and they require of similar actions for their management.

Palabras clave : maintenance; reliability; safety; availability; steam boilers.
