ASME Section VIII Division 1 (FEA) stress and buckling analysis on a decanter used to transfer microscopic materials.
Mechanical Engineering Projects
Engineering design, analysis and troubleshooting services on components using (thermal, stress, vibration and fatigue) finite element analysis to API, AWS, ASME and other codes. We provide engineering support in the entire life-cycle of equipment and facilities – from assisting in product development, to resolving operational issues and providing support on equipment nearing the end of design life.
Failure analysis and subsequent design modification on a FRP contactor vessel used to separate hydrogen sulfide from bio-gas & landfill gas.
A client had determined that in very dusty environments where their base-ported pressure filter was used, particles can get in between the threads of the tube and cap.
Fatigue analysis on a rail coupler to AAR Specification M1001.
API 510 inspection and API 579-1/ ASME FF-1 fitness for service evaluation performed on glass-lined stainless steel brewery tanks
Coke Oven Battery Engineering Evaluation – design / construction forensic investigations in $560 M ICC Arbitration.
ASME Section VIII Design & Analysis – thermal, stress FEA analysis on elevated temperature/ pressure vessels for processing nuclear waste.
Stress and Fatigue analysis of high cycle vessels that are used to produce virtually pure hydrogen.
Frequency Response Testing of Compressor Turbine Vanes conducted to prevent mass loading and external damping effects
Vibration and shock analysis on a shipboard heat exchanger. Heat exchangers were to be supported on rigid platforms that are attached to the process deck of the ship and therefore subjected to ship motion acceleration loads.
FEA design and (impact, thermal shock, and fatigue) analysis of pressure vessels and equipment subjected to high energy impact with a dual phase fluid at supersonic speed
For a major food processing company, we performed a failure investigation of a horizontally mounted low pressure process vessel. The sequential failure of several of the nuts holding the closure head caused it to blow off, seriously injuring a worker. A review of the original design showed that the vessel had not been built with …
A 9 foot diameter, 60 foot long Stripper Vessel was designed and fabricated to be placed in service at a refinery in the Virgin Islands.
Cracks had developed on tube-to-tubesheet welds on a chemical reactor. We were asked to perform a thermal transient and stress analysis of the welds. This included the startup, controlled heatup and cool-down processes on the reactor with respect to the potential for creating leaks through the tube to tubesheet welds.
Comparison of a Saudi plant layout Standard to US, European and Japanese Standards – relative to siting and spacing from a safety perspective
ASME Section VIII Division 1 analysis was performed on a de-resining unit storage drum located at a refinery
