Hands on engineering 

We deliver consultancy and engineering services over existing equipment subject to extreme load conditions or new operating requirements aimed to life extension, failure root cause analysis, design validation or reengineering.

Exintro provides support for manufacturing of capital goods by covering aspects as manufacturing and assembly tooling design, definition of inspection procedures or quality assurance.

Based on our experiece, we provide engineering services for companies involved in issues usually related to non-compliance of process/mechanical performance or failure in components, equipment or plant assets within Oil&Gas and Offshore-Wind industries, among other sectors.

Exintro performs engineering troubleshooting on equipment with issues including thermal, mechanical, corrosion, materials, welding, vibration, fatigue, etc.

We investigate prototype issues, production line shutdowns and field failures providing solutions which help our clients save time, money and reputation.

Our weld engineering services include joint analysis, procedure development and qualification, process and filler-metal selection, to non-conformance and Code compliant resolutions. In addition, we develop weld repair procedures.

Fatigue is one of the key contributing factors to the degradation of aging components. Fatigue failures occur when these structures are subjected to cyclic stresses and strains over time. This leads to the development of micro-cracks in the most highly strained locations, which subsequently propagate until the component fails. We investigate the factors that contribute to structural failure – and provide practical solutions.

Often, various technical issues many need discussion/litigation. We provide forensic engineering services to predict how components have failed – providing results that are easily understood by all parties.

About finite element analysis, we realize that assigning FEA to engineers lacking product experience produces another hazard. To produce meaningful FEA results, the analyst must know the principles underlying the finite-element method. The analyst also needs practical experience, a feel for design and sound engineering judgment. One must understand the product as well as its intended work environment. This knowledge is critical for tasks such as deciding which features must be accurately modeled, deleting or simplifying others, determining how to apply loads and restrain the model, analyzing errors and conveying results back to the designer.

We are particularly specialized in Delayed Coking units, FCCU, Pressure vessels, Tanks, Skid Units, Boilers, Autoclaves, Engineered equipment, Global analysis for the Pressure Equipment Directive and EC directives in general, HAZOP review.
