Joint leakage is an expensive problem, but it need not be accepted as part of plant operations and the cost of doing business.E2G’s IntelliJoint software offers a total solution to bolted joint leakage that can immediately reduce maintenance expenditure and improve safety.Eliminate downtime from problem jointsAvoid the expense and damage of improper remediationImprove the safety of your personnelReceive EPA creditsAvoid costly leak-sealing and/or joint clamping operationsOverall, keep your operations running safely and smoothlyIntelliJoint can be used as a repository for all critical bolted flanged joint data and leakage solutions for your plant, putting everything in one place for a one-stop solution:Joint Assembly Best Practices (time & effort reduction, improved performance)On-line Leak RepairEngineering (gasket selection, bolt load selection, troubleshooting)DeliveryThe upcoming release will be delivered via the cloud meaning its users can expect the following:Access to data from any web-enabled deviceNo installation – no maintenance hassles – everInstant access to updates and improvementsData OrganizationRather than organizing Joints in a hierarchical manner (e.g. unit->equipment->component), this version of IntelliJoint enables users to assign various “tags” to Joints which provides a more robust way of organizing their data. For example, a piping joint can be tagged with “Outlet Piping”, but also “Fall Turn Around” or “High Priority”.Joint OptimizationAfter entering the requisite information for each joint component, IntelliJoint’s Joint Optimization tool can be used to perform the following:Compare the performance of various gasket styles or manufacturersDetermine the best gasket for the specific applicationEstimate the optimal assembly bolt stress that both ensures adequate sealing and avoids damage to the joint componentsVisualize the amount of gasket stress that is lost due to internal pressure, thermal gradients, and creep relaxationOptimize the gasket dimensionsTroubleshoot existing gasket configurations and determine the effectiveness of proposed leak fixesTechnical BasisThe analysis implemented by IntelliJoint combines procedures outlined the following in technical publications:ASME PCC-1WRC 510WRC 538The material properties used for the flange and bolt components are determined based on the applicable ASME B&PV Code documents. The gasket material properties were established based on the ASME PVP paper “Determination of the Mechanical and Thermal Properties of Selected Gasket Types” by Brown et al.Download the BrochurePricingThese tools are offered on a variety of levels.
