SagePlus Analyticals

The Benchmark Tool for FFS Assessments

SagePlus was created in 2002 by our own industry-leading engineers to support our consulting practice and continuously evolves based on the latest committee approved changes. This often occurs before formal publication of updates, as our experts are dedicated to advancing technology and serve as leaders on industry committees (API/ASME 579, API 520, ASME B313, and other relevant codes and standards committees).

API RBI Software

The API RBI Software Difference

Many companies provide RBI software. Most claim to be compliant with API RP (Recommended Practice) 580; a few claim to comply with API RP 581. E2G’s software is the only API-branded RBI software product because we are committed to fully supporting the RBI technology as documented in API RP 581.

Key Functions

API RBI technology uses a true risk-based interval. The methodology offers the option to set a maximum interval (in practice, 20 to 25 years) and recommends re-evaluation of the RBI study at a minimum of every 10 years (less if operating conditions change).

DamagePlus

A new and updated guide through the maze of refinery damage mechanisms

Your quick reference guide to refinery damage mechanisms, DamagePlus software, has been updated to the newest edition of API RP 571, Damage Mechanisms Affecting Fixed Equipment in the Refining Industry, Second Edition, April 2011.

Key Functions

  • Guidance through the damage mechanism selection process
  • Help in selecting the best inspection method for each type of damage
  • Simplified Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs) that show where damage is likely to occur in a process unit
  • DamagePlus software includes the complete API RP 571 document and has all the tools you need to comply with it – new information, updates and corrections that are essential to helping you identify, understand and analyze the potential damage mechanisms that can cause costly fixed equipment failure.

Damage For The Web

Damage for The Web

Using the Solver Tab, you can easily identify and learn active and potential damage mechanisms, quickly view critical factors affecting damage, and filter damage mechanisms by metallurgy, temperature and process unit.

The HTHA Tab lets you plot ‘what if’ tick marks to illustrate susceptibility under specific conditions and print results with comments for reports and future review.
