COMPRESS saves Engineering hours, prevents mistakes and helps shorten equipment delivery times. It combines easy to use, comprehensive ASME® design calculations with cost estimating, solid modeling and automatic drawing generation.

Benefits include a productivity boosting vessel design wizard, fast ASME design report creation, 3D CAD integration with SOLIDWORKS® and Inventor®, built-in finite element analysis (FEA) and the best engineering support services in our industry.

  • COMPRESS pressure vessel software can design various support configurations including braced legs
  • COMPRESS pressure vessel design software includes a Long Seam Wizard to quickly place longitudinal shell seams
  • The COMPRESS Heat Exchanger Option includes expansion joint FEA as required by the TEMA 9th Edition.
  • Drafter 3D creates drawings from COMPRESS designs and is included with the CWI at no additional cost.
  • The COMPRESS heat exchanger option covers kettle type (u-tube) designs including consideration of the eccentric cone
  • Nozzle Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is included at no additional charge
  • COMPRESS includes an ASME Appendix 2 Flange Design Wizard that considers external loads and mating flange pairs
  • Shopfloor is a cloud based welding procedure management software that integrates with COMPRESS and INSPECT
  • Shopfloor performs ASME IX Code checks as weld forms are created and sends welder continuity expiration alerts via email
  • Shopfloor includes ASME Section IX weld forms pWPS, PQR, WPS, WPQ and WOPQ
  • Specialized welding processes supported include OFW, PAW, ESW, EGW and brazing
  • Shopfloor supports common welding processes including GTAW, GMAW, SAW, SMAW and FCAW

Shopfloor simplifies welding management by tracking welder continuity, welding procedures and any other job, equipment, work location or welder related documentation. When used with COMPRESS or INSPECT, it automates information exchange between your Engineering, Maintenance and QC departments. As Shopfloor is a native cloud application it is able to provide users with the latest in data management, access and security as well.

Shopfloor sends welder continuity alerts and performs Code checks as weld forms are created. It features unlimited data storage, multiple work site tracking, integration with COMPRESS and INSPECT and offers a weld procedure setup and implementation service.

INSPECT is a combined Fitness-For-Service and 3D Inspection Data Management System that determines equipment remaining life and inspection schedules. It helps extend inspection intervals and save companies money while reducing risk. INSPECT documents undocumented pressure vessels, performs rigorous tmin calculations and assists Engineers making run, re-rate, repair or replace decisions for pressure vessels, heat exchangers, piping and above ground storage tanks.

INSPECT replaces multiple software packages from different vendors with a single user interface that organizes your facility’s pressure equipment into intuitive and efficient 3D models. When it becomes necessary to repair your pressure equipment, INSPECT’s integration with our Shopfloor welding management system speeds and simplifies that process too.

  • INSPECT Includes API 653 Storage Tank Evaluations, Inspection Data Management, Calculations and Reports
  • INSPECT calculates pressure equipment remaining life including ASME B31.3/API 570 piping systems
  • INSPECT shows API 579-1 flaw combinations on fixed equipment in 3D
  • INSPECT enables 3D plant modeling for Inspection, Reliability and Pressure Equipment Engineers
  • 3D pressure equipment layout in INSPECT speeds navigation and data entry
  • An INSPECT ASME B31.3 pipe section showing multiple API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 flaw types
