FITNESS FOR SERVICE SOFTWARE

Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessment software for evaluating the integrity of ageing pipework, pipelines, storage tanks, boilers, pressure vessels and high temperature equipment.

  • Automates Level 1 and Level 2 Fitness for Service (FFS) assessments described in API 579/ASME FFS-1
  • All assessments are rigorous applications of a selection of the most widely used and relevant FFS standards or procedures from API and ASME (e.g. API 579-1/ ASME FFS-1 2007, ASME B31.G)
  • Material databases from the following design codes are included in the software: ASME VIII, ASME B31.3, ASME B31.4, ASME B31.8, PD 5500, API 650, and API 620
  • Offers the next generation in plant integrity management systems, by allowing engineers and managers to improve safety and plant availability and to reduce outage and maintenance costs
  • Decision-support software designed to assist engineers in evaluating the integrity of pipework, pipelines, pressure equipment and high temperature structures

Key features

  • Wide range of assessment modules for different damage mechanisms including metal loss, pitting corrosion, laminations, hydrogen damage
  • Wide range of equipment and component geometries including cylindrical shells, spheres, torispherical heads, elliptical heads, bends, elbows, reducers
  • Calculation of critical operational conditions and safe continued operating loads to applicable international standards such as API 579-1/ ASME FFS-1 2007, ASME B31G, etc. in a single software tool
  • Assessment management based on equipment with possible multiple assessments for each piece of equipment
  • A hierarchical structure enabling multiple assessments that can be used to conduct “what-if” scenarios:
