ANSWERS TO TODAY'S INDUSTRY CHALLENGES
Aging infrastructure, growing knowledge gaps, fewer qualified employees, changing jurisdictional requirements, and a push to produce sustainable products or services. These issues are relevant to all processing facilities.
At E2G, we combine our industry expertise, codes and standards knowledge with a multi-disciplinary approach to address these common challenges. Our consulting services, corporate standards, and software help you improve facility-wide safety, increase inspection efficiencies, reduce equipment downtime, and maximize operational reliability.
How We Help Your Industry
Eliminate Knowledge Gaps
The crew change is here, your subject matter experts (SMEs) are retiring, and there are fewer personnel available to fill those roles. The Equity Engineering Practices (EEPs) capture SME knowledge and integrate that information into the industry’s most comprehensive corporate standards. The EEPs are accessible to all employees, which increases the safety and reliability of your facility.
Comply with Jurisdictional Codes & Regulations
In every industry, jurisdictional requirements are changing to meet environmental targets and address sustainable operations. As active members on many API and ASME committees, we know the codes and standards and use this knowledge on every project and technology we deliver. We help you meet jurisdictional requirements without over-engineering.
Minimize Unplanned Maintenance or Shutdown
Unplanned maintenance or shutdowns are expensive. The equipment needs to restart quickly to minimize production and revenue losses. E2G offers pre-turnaround planning, proactive fitness-for-service (FFS) assessments, and risk-based inspection (RBI) program implementation to help you minimize unplanned shutdowns, improve equipment reliability, and reduce operational risk.

ASME VIII-1 Appendix 2 flange design rules states flanges should be sufficiently robust to withstand the stresses produced by operating loads; however, what happens if those flanges leak during operation?. Do you know what options are available to reduce or eliminate the potential risk of leakage in bolted flange joints? In this article, Bob Davis introduces several options to evaluate bolted flange designs with the goal of minimizing the risk of leakage without risking damage to any of the joint components.
