INSPECT Data Logger Integration Speeds Flaw AssessmentsPaul Daniel2018-12-14T12:46:47-04:00
INSPECT Data Logger Integration
How much time would you save and how many errors would you avoid if you could access your data logger’s grids and thickness surveys directly from your Fitness-for-Service software? INSPECT’s data logger integration makes setting up and retrieving inspection grids from thickness gages fast and easy. INSPECT’s unique 3D flaw modeling and data logger integration simplify the API 579-1 flaw assessment workflow to:
The engineer models the equipment and creates the inspection grid using INSPECT. A copy of the reference grid can be printed out at this time if desired.
Upload the FFS grid or inspection points (CML’s) to your thickness gage from INSPECT.
The inspector takes the thickness readings.
INSPECT reads the thickness survey measurements directly from your gage.
The engineer now uses INSPECT to perform the required API 579-1 FFS assessment or API 510/570/653 analysis to determine remaining life, inspection schedules etc.
Data Logger and Flaw Assessment Demonstration Using INSPECT
In this brief video, Codeware’s General Manager, Matt Heilandt P. Eng., illustrates the use of INSPECT’s thickness gage integration by performing an API 579-1 Part 5 local metal loss flaw assessment on a pipe elbow.
API 579-1, Part 3
Ensure your operating procedures limit the risk of brittle fracture by automatically running Part 3 assessments.
Address in-service activities such as inspection, remaining life determination and repair.
3D inspection data management and calculations simplify compliance with the requirements of the API-570 Code.
Track tank thickness inspection measurements and provide calculation reports.
Set up and retrieve inspection grids from thickness gages fast and easy.
Meet the Mechanical Integrity requirements of OSHA1910.119 (j) and EPA Title 40 part 68.73.
Pressure Vessel Inspection Code requires owners to maintain permanent, progressive records as listed in API 510 Section 7.8
