Quest Integrity Group recently announced the availability of its new Signal Fitness-for-Service Version 4 software tool, developed to ensure the safety standards of fixed and rotating equipment.
Designed by industry experts, Quest Integrity’s new Signal Fitness-for-Service (FFS) software allows engineers to quickly perform FFS and fracture mechanics analyses on fixed and rotating equipment, thereby reducing equipment and operational safety risks.
Quest Integrity Group Chief Technology Officer Dr Ted Anderson said “Our new Signal FFS Standard and Professional editions allow our clients to choose the right FFS and fracture mechanics analysis that best fits their asset and operating circumstances.”
Both versions of the software help to mitigate safety risks by performing rapid FFS assessments while providing consistent adherence to industry standards.
In addition, the company offers a Quick Start Package, which combines either the Standard or Professional edition with training, direct access to Quest Integrity engineers and additional example problems to aid in analysis.
“We have responded to client input and added functionality and user-interface features to reduce the client’s learning curve and make it even easier to use, while empowering clients with a tool to help avoid costly unplanned downtime,” Dr Anderson said.
Signal FFS Standard provides quick Level 1 and 2 FFS assessments for common damage mechanisms, while the Professional edition also includes comprehensive Level 2 support and advanced functionality to support Level 3 assessments. Both versions offer an intuitive wizard interface that guides users through assessment calculations.
A detailed, yet simple, description for each input value is given, eliminating the need to look up additional information. Fully worked API 579 example problems are installed and ready to use so users can follow the calculation steps. An integrated help function includes the background and applicability of each assessment type.
