INSPECT assists plant inspection and turn around activities by quickly creating API 579 Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessment reports for pressure vessels, heat exchangers, piping and above ground storage tanks. It tracks inspection data and seamlessly uses thickness surveys to determine equipment inspection intervals and retirement dates. INSPECT makes rerating pressure vessels simple and helps Engineers make run, repair or replace decisions. IT departments also appreciate that INSPECT does all of this without the need to purchase, deploy and learn a bunch of separate software “modules”.
Depending on your needs, INSPECT’s API 579-1 FFS can assess individual components, complete vessels or even model entire process systems. INSPECT also reduces regulatory compliance risk by quickly documenting undocumented pressure vessels . And 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 features a 3D inspection data management system (IDMS) that has the unique ability to show CML’s and flaws such as pitting and local metal loss directly on equipment models. This simplifies equipment data management and allows INSPECT’s tmin calculations to use local CML joint efficiencies to extend vessel remaining life and inspection intervals.
INSPECT is a Fitness-For-Service extension of our market leading COMPRESS pressure vessel software. It includes all available COMPRESS functionality and shares the same user interface and file format. This commonality makes the transition from COMPRESS to INSPECT easy and efficient. Users new to Codeware products benefit from an easy to learn user interface that has been in service for over 30 years, minimizes training time and reduces implementation costs.
