Pressure Vessel Design Software

Produce better 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
  • The COMPRESS Appendix 2 Flange design includes a Flange Wizard and considers external loads and mating flange pairs
  • INSPECT shows API 579-1 flaw combinations 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
  • An INSPECT ASME B31.3 pipe section showing multiple API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 flaw types

API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Software

INSPECT is a combined Fitness-For-Service and Inspection Data Management System that saves companies time and money while reducing risk. INSPECT produces RAGAGEP based documentation and helps Engineers make run, re-rate, repair or replace decisions for vessels, exchangers, piping and storage tanks.

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. When it becomes necessary to repair your pressure equipment, INSPECT’s integration with our Shopfloor welding management system speeds and simplifies that process too.

ASME IX Weld Management Software

Shopfloor increases fabrication productivity by managing your ASME IX 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.

  • We call it the Shopfloor Main Menu. You'll call it ASME IX 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
