Mechanical Engineering: ATS engineers provide complete engineering support in all areas of general engineering from complex problem solving, product/process improvement, design evaluation, machine/system analysis, custom machinery design and project management. Our engineers are experienced, hands-on field professionals that you can count on. When it comes to design and implementation for small operators or mill-wide mechanical integrity programs, ATS is second to none. We begin by determining your specific needs, and then customize your plan to fulfill all your requirements. ATS uses both commercially available (Nastran, Autodesk Simulation Mechanical and CFD, LS-Dyna, Solidworks Simulation, COMPRESS) and in-house custom developed software to assist in evaluating vessels, piping and storage tanks. Our calculations are not generic or wholesale but instead are specific to every code and standard nuance whether API, STI, ASME, NBIC or even industry published guidelines such as TAPPI and NACE.
Materials Engineering: Our in-depth expertise with corrosion and materials engineering coupled with our extensive industry background allows us to develop process specific inspection plans so that the right inspection is performed from the start. We have the capability to perform cradle-to-grave engineering designs as well as innovative Fitness-For-Service techniques using the recommended practices from API RP 579. The role of the corrosion/materials engineers is crucial since they are typically part of a multi-disciplinary team being responsible for identifying the cause of damage. They also select the material properties used in the assessment, determine remaining life (including future corrosion allowance), and develop appropriate remediation or monitoring plans.
Structural Engineering: Our Structural Engineers are experienced, hands-on field professionals with capabilities in damage assessment, evaluations, inspections and repair designs for structural and concrete, structural steel, structural masonry, pre-tensioned and post-tensioned concrete. Our problem-solving investigations and repair designs focus on vehicular impact, high-wind/storm damage, corrosion, decay, cracking of structural materials, construction errors, and distressed properties.
Safety Engineering: Mechanical, structural, industrial, and materials engineers provide a wide range of services to all industries. Through good engineering practice and hands-on practical problem solving, we help clients reduce risk and cut cost. We accomplish this by assessing existing equipment and designing repairs and retrofits while focusing on safety and economics.
Reliability Engineering: Reliability of your assets is essential to remain competitive in today’s economic climate. ATS’ reliability services translate into improved safety, product quality, productivity, and efficiency. Unplanned downtime of equipment costs industry millions of dollars in process and service interruptions each day. Our reliability services group will help you develop and sustain a comprehensive reliability program to prevent failure from occurring. ATS’ reliability services can significantly reduce costs by minimizing production interruptions and losses and eliminating unnecessary repairs.
Industrial Services: ATS provides engineering services for tank and vessel integrity programs for companies like yours so that you can be confident that you are minimizing unscheduled downtime, safety and environmental risks while maximizing the benefits of your inspection dollars. Our engineers are experienced, hands-on field professionals that you can count on. Our experts have been thoroughly trained in several specialized techniques used to perform storage tank evaluations. ATS’ procedures comply with industry standards and API codes. We provide detailed reports, which accurately reflect the reliability of your tanks. Our final inspection calculations and recommendations are reviewed and approved by an API certified inspector (as applicable) and/or a state registered professional engineer.
Commercial Services: The Commercial Services Division of ATS has been serving the most recognizable names in real estate for several decades. Professionals throughout the country trust us – you can too. We have licensed Professional Engineers (P.E.’s) on-staff to certify the compliance of your equipment to provide you with peace of mind. ATS stays at the forefront of building maintenance technology, which benefits our landlord and property management clients by reducing risks and costs. Our engineers are thoroughly educated in OSHA, ANSI, ASME and IWCA compliance issues so you do not have to be, freeing your time for other critical operational tasks. ATS provides services to building owners and managers with regards to ANSI/IWCA I-14.1, ASME A120.1 & OSHA 1910.66 Compliance.
Welding Engineering: Applied Technical Services’ welding engineers have the experience and knowledge to develop customized welding procedure specifications (WPS) that are compliant with current and applicable codes and standards, including but not limited to AWS, ASME, AMS and NACE. We are familiar with unique standards that apply to specific industries which require common or specialized production. We have built an excellent reputation with the construction, infrastructure, automotive, nuclear, aerospace, power generation, medical, and maritime industries.
