Design/Analysis of Chemical Reactor, Weld Overlay, Bellows FEA and Tube to Tubesheet

Providing engineering support to the petrochemical industry, including structural and vibration analysis, metallurgical services, weld consulting, corrosion and risk analysis.

Our work includes assisting in the design, startup, commissioning and structural/safety analysis – as well as API 579 Fitness for Service on chemical plants, offshore structures, refineries and other facilities – reducing risk and controlling your total cost of ownership.

FEA Model of Vessel

Structural analysis of a vessel subjected to a vacuum loading at elevated temperature – to determine instantaneous (linear and non-linear) buckling and long term creep buckling responses.

  • Refineries and petrochemical plants contain some of the harshest environments – subjected to extreme pressures and temperatures, as well as highly corrosive environments. In order to design, build and operate such equipment, engineering expertise in metallurgy, welding and elevated temperature applications is required. In addition, this equipment is asked to perform safely and efficiently to – and often beyond its design life – in order to minimize plant life cycle costs.

    Our team of engineers have over 30 years experience in resolving corrosion, weld, seismic/vibration and other plant issues.

    We also provide API579/ASME FFS-1 Fitness for Service evaluations to extend the life of equipment.

    Examples Include:

    • Pressure Vessels
    • Heat Exchangers
    • Condensors
    • Compressors
    • Steam Generators
    • Superheaters
    • Evaporators
    • Piping/ Valves

    Fatigue is one of the key contributing factors to the degradation of aging components. We perform fatigue analysis to ASME code to keep you compliant, and ensure structural integrity.

    Learn from the experience of others. Especially when one such “other” is Dr. William O’Donnell, PhD, PE, Founder and President of O’Donnell Consulting Engineers, Inc., and ASME “Engineer of the Year” – his 50 years of experience in analysis of components including fatigue and fracture safety evaluations and failure analyses are now comprised in this volume.

    If you are interested learning more in Engineering Design, Manufacturing and Construction, as well as Failure Analysis, then this book is a must have!
