Chemical

Chemical facilities process, store, and transport volatile and dangerous products and materials, often at extremely high pressures and varying temperatures, all while working to comply with stringent standards and codes designed to protect workers, neighboring communities, and the environment.

For the chemical market, Hexagon PPM analysis solutions diminish these risks by using the latest global design codes and standards to help prevent substandard design that can lead to regulatory violations and costly and sometimes dangerous system failures. Using these codes and standards, Intergraph CAESAR II® automates the analyses of stresses associated with the design of piping systems in chemical plants and other facilities. Intergraph PV Elite® automates the analyses and design of vessels and exchangers exposed to high temperatures and pressures. Intergraph TANK™ analyzes and design storage tanks for oil and petroleum products according to the latest industry standards and codes.

Consumer Goods

Hexagon PPM analysis solutions enhance the design engineering process because they integrate analysis with plant design to allow designers and engineers to work more closely together and seamlessly share information back and forth. This gives you the confidence that your specification-driven designs and analyses are kept in sync, which reduces error, saves engineering labor hours, and lowers costs. Our analysis solutions also automate the analyses and design of facilities that produce the materials and components that go into the manufacture of consumer goods, such as plastics, forest products, food products, and beverages.

Marine Offshore and Shipbuilding

Ship piping design, and particularly floating production, storage, and offloading vessel piping, requires rugged installations that can withstand the hull/platform movement associated with wave loads. These analyses involve the consideration of volumes of data that may be overwhelming due to ever-changing boundary conditions. Hexagon PPM analysis solutions provide integrated tools that provide opportunities to improve change management and the iterative information flow that takes place in analyzing and designing these maritime vessels.

Our solutions use codes and standards specific to the offshore industry, including DNV (Norwegian offshore), ASME B31.8 (offshore pipeline systems for gas transmission), B31.4 Chapter IX (offshore pipeline systems for liquid hydrocarbons), UKOOA (UK offshore), PD 8010 Part 2 (subsea pipelines), and CSA Z662 Chapter 11 (Canadian offshore). The application of these codes, and others, help ensure your facilities and installations are engineered and designed to the world’s highest standards.

Metals and Mining

Hexagon PPM analysis solutions help mining companies and EPC contractors diminish risk by using the latest global design codes and standards to help prevent substandard design, regulatory violations, and costly and potentially dangerous system failures in plants and piping systems that operate under extreme pressures, temperatures, and conditions. For example, Intergraph CAESAR II®, the world’s most widely used software for automating pipe stress analysis and design, includes the latest global codes and standards and has been proven in the most complex, challenging applications and conditions where reliability of results is critical. Intergraph PV Elite® automates the analysis and design of vessels and exchangers to ensure reliable design while improving engineering design efficiencies. Intergraph TANK™ automates the analysis and design of tanks for storing oil and other petroleum products associated with these facilities. Intergraph GT STRUDL® structural analysis software is a high-quality, fully integrated, and database-driven system for comprehensive frame and finite element analysis, and steel and reinforced concrete design.

Nuclear and Power Generation
In power generation, companies look to Hexagon PPM solutions at each phase of the plant design and engineering life cycle process, whether the facility uses fossil, hydroelectric, or nuclear fuel sources. PPM analysis solutions help diminish risk for the major multi-generational capital investments required for nuclear and other power generation facilities.

When combined with our advanced levels of integration and more complete, accurate deliverables, our solutions aid the design process by ensuring that facilities come on stream earlier and with greater reliability.

Oil & Gas

Hexagon PPM analysis solutions help petrochemical companies and other oil and gas processors, transporters, and deliverers diminish risk by using the latest global design codes and standards to help prevent substandard design, regulatory violations, and costly and potentially dangerous system failures in plants and piping systems that operate under extreme pressures, temperatures, and conditions. For example, Intergraph CAESAR II®, the world’s most widely used software for automating pipe stress analysis and design, includes the latest global codes and standards and has been proven in the most complex, challenging applications and conditions where reliability of results is critical. Intergraph PV Elite® automates the analysis and design of vessels and exchangers to ensure reliable design while improving engineering design efficiencies. Intergraph TANK™ automates the analysis and design of tanks for storing oil and other petroleum products associated with these facilities.

Pharmaceutical

High-value pharmaceutical facilities require very strict standards, and Hexagon PPM analysis solutions can help you design these facilities so they are safer and more reliable. For example, the challenges of clean in place (CIP) designs in many of these facilities, often in constrained locations, can introduce piping stresses that cause mechanical failures that lead to extended closures, while facilities undergo repairs and sanitation for reuse. PPM solutions help eliminate substandard designs that could lead to system failures, which prevents costly closures and provides long-term savings for owner operators.
