Silverwing Inspection Mapping Software (SIMS) reporting suite
provides the most powerful and efficient means to create high
quality reports on tank condition, and archiving of inspection
results for traceability.
SIMS imports data from the Floormap3Di and
automatically positions each of the separate plate files together
to produce a CAD drawing of the entire tank floor showing the
location and severity of all corrosion over 20% loss or
Additional Inspection Data
A unique feature of SIMS is the ability to add results from other
inspections carried out on the tank floor. Results from visual,
ultrasonic, Handscan, MFL and even weld inspections can be
added to the SIMS report to produce a complete ‘fingerprint’ of
the tank floor condition.
Digital images taken during the inspection can be added to the
tank data and linked to specific areas of the tank floor to add a
further level of detail into the report.
Tank Condition Analysis
Corrosion can be displayed as individual coloured pixels to
provide precise information on the condition of specific areas of
the tank floor. Alternatively the plates can be coloured according
to the maximum corrosion detected on each track to provide an
overview of the general condition of the tank.
A ‘Plate View’ allows the operator to view tank inspection data in
more detail. The precise position and estimated percentage loss
of individual corrosion indications can be displayed by holding the
cursor over a specific point on the plate.
Tank Data imported from the Floormap3D has been further
enhanced allowing the location of all top surface / bottom surface /
combined corrosion to be available at a press of a button.
To complement the powerful reporting features, SIMS includes
several tools to aid decision makers while evaluating the
A repair plate tool is seamlessly integrated into the software
allowing the user to quickly design patch plate locations. Once all
patch plates have been entered, the software will automatically
produce a cutting list showing the total amount of material
required to repair the tank.
An innovative feature of the software is the data comparison
tool, allowing the user to overlay two separate sets of tank data
recorded on different dates and provide a direct comparison of
corrosion growth at either the tank or plate level and assess as
part of RLA/ RBI programme.
The comprehensive and easy to use SIMS reporting and analysis
tools are further enhanced with statistical displays and
a comprehensive and customisable report printing tool.
