For cases where the measured thicknesses do not change INSPECT leaves the cell blank. This makes the dialog easier to read and draws the user’s attention to the corrosion “hot spots”.
Flange rigidity is one of the criteria that would need to be met when rating older equipment to later Codes. The rigidity check used to be in Non-mandatory appendix S then later moved into Appendix 2. Our recommendation is to perform this check even for older flanges.
Please email so we can clarify your question and we can discuss.
There are no INSPECT based limits on the number or type of files that can be saved. A number of INSPECT clients currently use this feature for this purpose.

As INSPECT contains all of the functionality of COMPRESS, it is a good option for fabrication shops that also perform rerates for their clients during turn around periods. Many owner/operators have inspection data and send it to the fabricator so they can assess the vessel since the equipment is in the shop for work.
