Produce better ASME designs faster by equipping your Engineering staff with the standard in pressure vessel software, COMPRESS.

Benefits include a productivity boosting user interface, rigorous and efficient ASME VIII calculations and reports, 3D CAD integration with SOLIDWORKS® and Inventor®, automated drawings, cost estimating, FEA and the best engineering 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 pressure vessel design programs.
  • 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
  • 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

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 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.

Shopfloor increases fabrication productivity by managing your weld forms and any other customer, job, equipment, work location or welder related documentation. When used with COMPRESS, it facilitates coordination between your Engineering, Drafting and QC departments. Shopfloor is a true native cloud application that offers the latest in data management, access and security.

Shopfloor sends welder continuity alerts and performs Code checks as weld forms are created. It features unlimited data storage, multiple fabrication locations, integration with COMPRESS and INSPECT and offers a turnkey implementation service.

  • Shopfloor is a cloud based welding management and welding procedure creation software that integrates with COMPRESS and INSPECT
  • Shopfloor performs rigorous 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
