 Summary:
 The paper presents examples of pressure equipment and pipelines the structural integrity loss of due to large induced defects in welded joints occurred during the time of preparation of construction or during operation, which are not detected in time or not at the time repaired, and can be attributed to inadequate prevention in system maintenance. Daily visual inspection should beprovided in order to monitor the behavior of structures in exploitation, and if necessary, NTD together with RBI method of tesing should be applied to the most loaded parts of the structure. This approach may be applied to other types of similar construction, and its application in preventive maintenance would help extend the life of pressure equipment and pipelines.
