Certification of Equipment
If you have a need to have some of your existing equipment certified, we can use our software and experience with many different Codes to help you. We know that you want to keep your employees safe, and we can help you meet those needs in a practical manner.
Structural and Solid Body Finite Element Analysis
Staffing and maintaining an engineering department is costly, and when you have projects that are outside of your experience and capabilities you have a decision to make. Do you purchase additional hardware and software along with the maintenance costs, or do you subcontract out the work? At DAIR Engineering we have already invested heavily in high end powerful computers, and have numerous seats of Structural and Solid Body Finite Element Analysis software. We have years of experience in performing critical and complicated analysis, using modelling techniques developed over many years to provide accurate results. Our experience in both design and fabrication in different industries are apparent in our results. If you have a special project that you need help with, we are interested in helping you reach your goals.
API Consulting, Design, and Third Party Design Reviews
Starting a project that requires API certification means that you have to have systems in place before work on the project begins. We have experience in helping companies obtain their API certifications by getting all of their procedures and documentation in order. If you are working on a design that needs to meet API requirements but don't have any experience, we can either work with you, or we can perform the work to API standards. If you need to have a third party design review, we can review your specifications and drawings and perform the review to API standards.
Failure analysis investigations require an understanding between the design of the equipment and how it is used during operations, as well as the materials and their strengths, static and dynamic loading, and the interactions between various components within the equipment. We have experience working with both practical and analytical approaches that provide an understanding into failures. An area that has had repeated failures indicate an underlying design flaw that we can help you find and remedy.
Fire and Explosion Investigation
Determining the cause of a fire is based on determining the origin. As a Certified Fire and Explosion Investigator we use Heat and Flame Vector Analysis and the identification and interpretation of burn patterns to locate the origin. Once the origin is located the next step is to find a competent potential ignition source and first fuel ignited.
Successfully welded structures require an understanding of both the metallurgy of the materials being welded as well as the different welding processes. We have provided CSA W59, W47.1 and AWS D1.1 welding procedures to many companies for use in plate, round bar, and tubular applications, for SMAW, FCAW, SAW and GMAW. We are also the retained welding engineering for a number of fabricators throughout Alberta.
