API 653 Inspectors Toolbox Version 5.0 Cloud

Cloud Version Updates

  • The new program is cloud-based and thus no longer dependent on Microsoft Access.
  • The new reporting feature allows for Word documents, in addition to PDF format.
  • Reporting will now print all associated sections/appendices as one, rather than having to piece together different sections.
  • Users will now be able to receive their data log using original Excel documents as the interface medium.
  • Users will also be able to link to relevant Code documents rather than having to save first to a specified folder.
  • Newer updates/editions will be a seamless transition, and no reports will be lost when updating the software.
  • Software “bugs” that resulted from Microsoft Access are a thing of the past and will no longer plague the system.
  • The Settlement Survey Evaluation has the capacity to enter in single AND double sets of readings for a more refined evaluation and completes the next step for the user (no other program on the market does this next step evaluation at present).
    • EX. API 653 Appendix B, B2.2.5 if the R^2 is less than 0.90
  • All extraneous calculations will be linked to reports, not just a predetermined set.
  • The data will automatically fall into place in accordance with the Appendix.
  • The CML and settlement points will now auto-generate, as opposed to previous editions which required manual entry

Data analysis and reporting is made simple and easy with the API 653 Inspectors Toolbox, an integrated suite of software tools. The API 653 Inspectors Toolbox can be used by inspectors in the field to complete timely reports on site. Alternatively, the API 653 Inspectors Toolbox provides a series of data gathering templates that can be used by field inspectors who can then hand off the data to others for analysis and reporting, thus allowing this function to be centralized and made more efficient.

With the API 653 Inspectors Toolbox, data analysis and reporting can be;

  • Made more accurate and comprehensive
  • Presented in a more professional manner
  • Completed in minutes rather than hours or days

The API 653 Inspectors Toolbox allows you to store, retrieve and transport the data and reports electronically as needed.  In addition the “smart” Report Generator (built into its core) allows for a dramatic reduction in processing time and provides instant analysis for defect assessment reporting.

The API 653 Inspectors Toolbox helps you to find information quickly via a series of icons and tabulated text windows.  The subject tabs of the text windows and icons help guide the user to the desired information page through a topical approach.  The tabulated text windows are designed to facilitate quick access to information that an Inspector or Reliability Engineer may need in response to questions or inspection findings requiring timely judgment calls.

Now Data Analysis and Reporting is made simple and easy with the enhanced API Inspectors Toolbox – Enterprise Edition, an integrated suite of software tools. The API Inspectors Toolbox – Enterprise Edition (653/570/510) can be used by inspectors in the field or office to complete comprehensive and accurate reports in a fraction of the time normally required. The API Inspectors Toolbox provides a series of data gathering templates that can be used by field inspectors who can then hand off the data to others for analysis and reporting, thus allowing this function to be centralized and made more efficient.

With the API Inspectors Toolbox, data analysis and reporting is:

  • Made more accurate
  • Made more comprehensive
  • Presented in a more professional manner
  • Completed in minutes rather than hours or days

The API Inspectors Toolbox allows you to store retrieve and transport the data and reports electronically as needed.

API 510 Module – The API-510 inspection code applies to all refining and chemical process vessels that have been placed in service and covers the in-service inspection, repair, alteration, and rerating activities for pressure vessels. The API 510 Toolbox a cutting edge tool for meeting the API-510 technical requirements for design, welding, NDE, and materials as applied to the inspection, rerating, repair, and alteration of in-service pressure vessels. It is intended for use by organizations that maintain or have access to an authorized inspection agency, a repair organization, and technically qualified pressure vessel engineers, inspectors, and examiners. The disciplines include Design Criteria, Inspection Guidelines, and Repair Specifications for pressure vessels and allows for independent calculations for virtually any type component and design condition including ASME Sect VIII, Div 1 App 2 Flanges, Heat Exchanger floating covers, Tower wind and structural loads, Horizontal tanks (i.a.w. the Zick formula), and more.

API 570 Module - covers the inspection, rating, repair, and alteration procedures for metallic and FRP piping systems and their associated pressure relieving devices that have been in-service. The intent of this code is to specify the maintenance, in-service inspection and condition-monitoring program that is needed to determine the integrity of piping between tanks and other assets. The API Toolbox provides accurate and timely assessments to determine if any changes in the condition of piping could possibly compromise continued safe operation. API 570 was developed for the petroleum refining and chemical process industries but may be used, where practical, for any piping system. It is intended for use by organizations that maintain or have access to an authorized inspection agency, a repair organization, and technically qualified piping engineers, inspectors, and examiners.

API 653 Module – provides structured subject matter analysis separated into a step-by-step process (Shell, Fixed Roof, Floor, Shell Nozzles, etc.). These component text windows have subsets of pages addressing the degree of degradation and other discrepancies. The disciplines include Design Criteria, Inspection Guidelines, and Repair Specifications for each of the components, etc.

Program Features & Benefits:

  • Saves time and effort to retrieve information via topical tabulated presentation- Drill down to information quickly (i.e. Material specs, PWHT guide, Design Codes, et.) and automated data retrieval based on specification input in the reporting and calculation pages.
  • Issues Procedures – (i.e. Hold points for a Tank TA's, PT Procedure, etc.)
  • Basic Code and Regulation links.
  • Independent Component Calculations (MAWP, tmin, remaining life, conversions, etc.)
  • Recording job data for future references or reporting (Coating specifications and applications, Hydro calcs, etc.)
  • Work pages for evaluating contractor welding  procedures (WPS, PQR, WPQ)
  • Report Building Modules for API-510, 570 and 653 compliant Inspection Reports that include sections for:
    • Executive Summary
    • Inspection finding and recommendations
    • Component calculations
      • tmin
      • Corrosion rates and remaining life
      • MAWP
    • Thickness data records
  • Checklist
  • Photos
  • Certifications
  • Design data sheets
    • Inspection forms
    • Repair Specifications
    • Definitions
  • Field Inspectors can write the reports in the field and then export the report to a report writer in an office for QA/QC and issuance.
  • Great study tool for candidates preparing to take the Inspectors Exams for API-653, 510 and 570.
