Intergraph keeps pace with changes in international industry standards and codes and incorporates these into its products. You can rely on up-to-date, internationally viable, quality output and results. Intergraph also monitors industry developments, including new technologies, to keep you on the leading edge of plant design and engineering.
When combined with our advanced levels of integration and more complete and accurate deliverables, Intergraph analysis solutions aid the design process by ensuring that facilities come on stream earlier and with greater reliability. These benefits provide long-term savings for owner operators, with safer and more reliable operations, as well as lower operating costs for all facility stakeholders.
Intergraph analysis solutions enhance the design engineering process of chemical plants because they integrate analysis with plant design. Designers and engineers can work more effectively by sharing data between their tasks. This gives you the confidence that your designs and analyses are kept in synch, which further reduces errors, saves engineering labor hours, and lowers costs.
Intergraph CAESAR II features the only bi-directional link between analysis and CAD design, enabling engineers and designers to share information with ease while keeping the drawings and related information in synch. Tools and wizards for tasks such as creating expansion loops or viewing plant models in the analysis space help bridge the gap between knowledge and experience. Such tools take the guesswork out of producing accurate analysis and recommending practical design changes.
Intergraph PV Elite provides engineers, designers, estimators, fabricators, and inspectors from around the world with solutions that match their pressure vessel and heat exchanger design needs. Because the program is easy to learn and use, it is perfect for both regular and occasional users requiring fast startup and confidence in their safety code calculations. PV Elite performs calculations in accordance with ASME Section VIII Divisions 1 and 2, PD 5500 and EN 13445. Rules from API579 (Fitness for Service) are also included for evaluating the current state and remaining life of existing vessels.
Intergraph TANK provides for the design and analysis of wall and bottom plate thickness, supported cone roofs, service and maintenance considerations, and other factors affecting tank design and safety, such as internal pressure, shell settlement, seismic impacts, and wind. The menu-driven interface of TANK promotes the quick definition of input and functions for the accurate analysis of oil storage tanks to American Petroleum Institute (API) standards.
