The iQ Flange Management System provides a single source of truth, seamlessly linking industry best practice engineering directly to project workflow capability. This supports flawless start-up and operational excellence.
Bolt‐load calculations derived from legacy systems, spreadsheets or even slide‐rules with no assurance of their provenance or execution context has led to outdated and often inaccurate tightening practices. This can cause safety and cost issues in the form of both hydrocarbon leakage and unnecessary damage to flange components. The Asset55 bolt load calculator uses a proprietary calculation methodology. It is the only one that is directly traceable to only the very latest best practices, including ASME PCC-1. Alongside this provision, the iQ Flange Management bolt load calculator is also embedded with the calculation methodologies of numerous operators. This allows work to be carried out by service providers on their assets to their own standards.
The iQ Flange Management System contains the industry’s most extensive libraries of flange, gasket & fasteners types and materials, and lubricants. This ensures that there is no second‐guessing required when carrying out critical bolt‐load calculations using the iQ bolt load calculator.
As a wholly independent provider, Asset55 provides an objective view of tooling requirements. Users can select from a huge range of hand and hydraulic tools based upon the tool manufacturer’s latest published data. It also includes guidance on the capability of each tool, allowing operators and contractors to optimise their tool inventory.
The Asset55 iQ Flange Management Joint Integrity Review provides a unique and powerful tool for quickly assessing the impact of any given bolt‐load upon the flange components. The simple visual representation allows the user to quickly view the relevant stress levels on the gasket, flange and bolt. Joint Integrity Review isn't just limited to the assembly of the joint, it also provides a full integrity picture during operation and under test conditions. Our fully bolt load calculator engine puts the power of very specialised integrity engineering expertise in the hands of the user. This allows them to make swift, safe and traceable decisions in the field, without the necessity of raising an engineering query, causing both project cost and delay. With the quick creation of safe and traceable bolt‐load calculations, the iQ Flange Management Engine already provides huge value even when used as a standalone tool, however when integrated with other iQ Flange Management modules, it becomes part of a massively powerful workflow support system.
The iQ Flange Management Joint Manager has the ability to bulk upload and cleanse data for hundreds of thousands joints from 3D models or legacy systems. Primary joint data can be populated via an interface file with the 3D model, this creates efficient data transfer and enables the potential for feeding back as built information to the model for use in commissioning and operational phases. Once sorted into the required project structure, users can quickly search across systems, sub‐systems and lines down to individual joints in order to revise detailed joint information, recalculate a bolt‐load, review a technical drawing, view a joint’s history or create work packs.
The iQ Flange Management Workpack Manager provides simple creation of a wide range of work and test packs. The user has the ability to update the joint status across a range of milestones, specific to the pack type, which is instantly viewable to all users, even if the joint resides in multiple packs. The system captures all activity and changes, allowing a creation of a full joint history, including any relevant technical drawings, documentation and reports.
