ASME Pressure Vessel Design Software

Design pressure vessels to ASME Section VIII, Division 1 or Division 2 and heat exchangers to TEMA, UHX rules.

Benefits include industry-standard ASME calculation reports, integration with Inventor®, SOLIDWORKS®, Shopfloor®, Drafter 3D, COSTER® and Pressure Vessel FEA as well as the best support services in our industry.

  • The 3D solid model view of a desalter in COMPRESS. From here you can check for interferences and export the solid model to other programs.
  • COMPRESS 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
  • The COMPRESS Appendix 2 Flange design includes a Flange Wizard and considers external loads and mating flange pairs
  • INSPECT shows combined API 579 FFS damage mechanisms on fixed equipment in 3D
  • INSPECT Shows API 570 CMLs on Piping in 3D
  • An ASME B31.3/API 570 piping system imported into INSPECT from AutoCAD® Plant 3D
  • INSPECT enables 3D plant modeling for Inspection, Reliability and Pressure Equipment Engineers
  • INSPECT shows CML's on API 653 storage tanks in 3D
  • 3D pressure equipment layout in INSPECT speeds navigation and data entry
  • INSPECT ASME B31.3 pipe model shows all API 579/ASME FFS-1 flaw types in 3D

Mechanical Integrity and FFS Software

INSPECT is a Fitness-For-Service software solution that saves companies time and money while reducing risk. INSPECT documents un-documented ASME pressure vessels and helps Engineers make run, re-rate, repair or replace decisions for ASME pressure equipment.

INSPECT’s exclusive 3D plant modeling for Inspection and Pressure Equipment Engineers can organize your facility’s corrosion loops into intuitive and efficient 3D models. Our perpetual and subscription licensing options and one program, one install software architecture support easy deployment and maintenance of INSPECT throughout your organization.

ASME IX Welding and Project Management

Track customers, jobs, work locations, welders, bolters, weld forms and more using Shopfloor’s cloud based fabrication management system. Shopfloor can replace paper based QC systems and bridge the gaps between your Engineering, Drafting and QC departments. It is a true native cloud application that offers the latest in data management, access and security.

Shopfloor manages both ASME IX and National Board® forms, tracks welder continuity and performs Code checks as weld forms are created. It features unlimited data storage, multiple fabrication locations, integration with COMPRESS, has no reliance on Windows Remote Desktop or MS SQL Server and offers a turnkey implementation service.

  • We call it the Shopfloor Main Menu. You'll call it Fabrication Central Command.
  • Shopfloor performs ASME IX Code checks as weld forms are created
  • 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
