The Socrates 7.0 system is a comprehensive material selection tool for oil and gas applications and provides the user access to the material selection decisions and decision logic of a domain expert and the pooled expertise of a distinguished group of oil companies, equipment manufacturers and materials suppliers in selection of CRA. The system also embodies information from other sources such as published literature on lab and field experience related to oil and gas field service as well as proprietary test data on evaluation of specific CRA material classes. The latest upgrade, Socrates 7.0, has been completely updated with new lab and field data, features, functionality and interface. This comprehensive revision brings the power of the state-of-the-art in corrosion/materials technology and computing to global users of Socrates systems
The earlier versions of SOCRATES system selected CRAs through material evaluation at five hierarchical levels:
|CRA evaluation based on mechanical strength parameters, heat treatment/cold work and hardness limitations|
|Material selection based on characterization of the environment in terms of operating pressure, temperature, pH, H2S, Chlorides, Elemental Sulfur, aeration, Gas to Oil Ratio and Water to Gas Ratio/water cut|
|CRA evaluation for stress corrosion cracking (SCC), hydrogen embrittlement cracking (HEC) and sulfide stress cracking (SSC)|
|CRA evaluation for resistance to pitting corrosion|
|Selection of final set of materials based on application related constraints.|
Socrates 7.0 has been completely re-designed to provide access to the most accurate and current material selection technology in tandem with a superior user experience. Now, you can use Socrates on any Microsoft compatible platform (XP, 2000, NT, 98) or network.
