Ei’s CAD Team utilizes computer programming logic and trade secrets in combination with color 3D point cloud data and color photo-spheres to digitally process and tag asset equipment (e.g., pumps, valves, pipes, flanges, connectors and instrumentation).
The workflow to create a digital tag inventory of process equipment involves the following steps:
Create a database of fugitive components subject to monitoring (while assuming all valves/components will have a database point, i.e. LDAR-applicable)
Identify geospatial addresses (x,y,z coordinates of components) will be unique identifier of ‘virtual LDAR tags’.
Implement virtual tags in 3D, thus eliminating physical tags (see image below)
We provide the following deliverables as a result of these type of projects:
3D point cloud in various formats, including points of interest tagged by equipment ID for major equipment (columns, vessels, drums and exchangers).
Smaller components digitally inventoried utilizing latitude, longitude, and elevation (X,Y,Z) coordinates.
Database export of equipment grouped by type, size, and other requested data properties.
