Risk-Based Inspection Implementation & Ongoing Program Management – As plants are facing stricter regulatory requirements, they still need to control costs and maintain equipment reliability. Through the inspection planning process, an ongoing API RP 581 program enables plant management to maintain a managed-risk and cost-effective operating environment.
Civil/Structural Analysis – E2G’s innovative structural design and integrity assessments can help optimize equipment availability, make repair-replace decisions that ensure stability and continued safety, improve performance, and avoid unnecessary repairs or replacements that may stem from a perception of structural inadequacy.
Brittle Fracture Screening – E2G provides a comprehensive screening program for pressure vessels, piping, and storage tanks. The program is consistent with the API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Fitness-for-Service methodologies to assess the susceptibility to catastrophic brittle fracture failures.
Flange Evaluation & Optimization – Today’s technology makes it possible for every joint to be sealed permanently. No one should accept the lost dollars from joint leakage or assembly procedures as normal operating cost. Most standard solutions don’t consider the “total joint” when assessing problems, providing only assembly-focused, gasket-focused, or analysis-focused solutions.
Advanced Stress Analysis – E2G performs stress analysis for the evaluation of in-service equipment and structures, and as consultants to manufacturers in the construction of new equipment. Building on the methods outlined in Part 5 of the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code Section VIII, Division 2 and API 579-1/ASME FFS-1, E2G is able to simulate and evaluate many different equipment conditions and loadings.
Computational Fluid Dynamics – E2G has been providing significant value to its customers using advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling techniques appropriately in solving complicated flow related problems. CFD is particularly useful when design correlations are not available; however, CFD can also be used effectively to remove conservatism associated with the existing design correlations. Cost savings can be significant when CFD is added to Fitness-For-Service analyses or new component designs.
High-Temperature Solutions – E2G has in-depth experience in evaluating the suitability-for-service of components operating in the high temperature range. Our involvement in joint industry programs sponsored by the MPC (Materials Properties Council) Project Omega for creep damage evaluation, and MolyHy for assessment of HTHA (High Temperature Hydrogen Attack) gives us special expertise in state-of-the-art technologies for equipment assessment.
Materials & Corrosion – Our engineers have hands-on experience with owner-users and industry service companies. We know plant environments and can offer practical advice along with timely solutions you can trust. With a combined 350+ years of experience, there aren’t many corrosion problems we haven’t encountered.
Onsite Shutdown Support – E2G can provide onsite (or remote) engineering support for your major maintenance turnarounds. Our engineers have extensive experience with inspection, evaluation, repairs, and remaining life assessments for equipment and can help in several different ways.
Pipeline Services – E2G provides many of our same life-cycle management services to pipeline and pipeline facilities. For pipeline Owners/Operators, a mechanical integrity program ensures safe, efficient, and reliable operations.
Fitness-For-Service – E2G is internationally recognized in the refining and petrochemical industry as a leader on aging infrastructure services and support. Our engineers pioneered the advancement of FFS technologies and were the lead investigators of the international standard API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Fitness-for-Service.
API 579/ASME FFS is a Complete Set of WebTools for Conducting a Fitness-for-Service Assessment. Each Part (3 through 14) of API-579 is included as a separate WebTool. The WebTools incorporate the most recent updates to API-579 and offer numerous features including an intuitive user interface, a clear organization of results, modern graphics, nicely formatted printable pdf reports, the ability to save and load assessments, easy access to help, and much more.
Damage for the Web is an invaluable reference guide for identifying and understanding the potential damage mechanisms that can cause costly fixed equipment failure.
SIMFLEX-III offers accuracy, productivity, and reliability in a fast and easy-to-use software package. SIMFLEX-III maintains the once-through process, allowing the code compliance analysis, spring design, rotating equipment load compliance report, anchor and support load combination table, limit-stop, and friction inclusion to be done with a single set-up of input data in a single computer run.
PlantManager delivers API RBI and SagePlus™. Capable of running locally on the desktop or in enterprise client-server configuration, the four-tier architecture of PlantManager™ provides a scalable, flexible solution to connect unlimited servers, databases, calculators, and clients.
API RBI software is the only API-branded RBI software product because we are committed to fully supporting the RBI technology as documented in API RP 581. API RBI technology uses a true risk-based interval. The software offers the option to set a maximum interval and recommends re-evaluation of the RBI study at a minimum of every 10 years.
SagePlus is a collection of analysis tools developed by E2G that runs in the PlantManager™ platform, allowing users to evaluate the design and in-service conditions of fixed pressure equipment. The software is organized in a series of packages targeting specific types of analysis functions.
DamagePlus – With a technical basis in API RP 571 and WRC 489, Damage for the web is an invaluable reference guide for identifying and understanding the potential damage mechanisms that can cause costly fixed equipment failure.
