Engineering and Quality

AIM employs the most knowledgeable engineers in the industry with a vast array of technical experience in custom manufacturing.

We utilize HTRI design software, which is the gold standard in process heat transfer and heat exchanger technology. Our skilled applications engineers can design and quote your unit(s) in just a matter of days.

Compress by Codeware is the ASME Code Calculation program of choice, and is utilized by AIM. With Compress, AIM can quickly perform Code Calculations to the most current version of ASME Code. This program also allows us to run FEA analyses and nozzle loads.

All drawings are created in AutoCAD, with Solidworks 3-dimensional drawings available upon request.

With this trifecta of software, you can trust that AIM will have your vessel designed correctly every time!

AIM is a proud member of HTRI
