At Sparta Engineering, we rely heavily in computer simulations, what is technically known as Finite Element Analysis (FEA). These computer simulations work by taking larger, very complex geometry and breaks it up into thousands of tiny, simple parts that interact together (A good analogy of this is a Lego structure, where a complex object is actually comprised of many smaller, simple parts)… Read more →

There are two basic certifications that are required on a lifting device in Canada. The first is the engineering approval on the capacity. The other is an annual weld inspection for ongoing certification. I occasionally come across un-certified lifting equipment in my trips around Alberta and every time it surprises me. Although, the industry is slowly becoming better at policing this, and the operators out there are getting trained to make sure their equipment is certified, it is still fairly common to see even larger companies using lifting equipment that hasn’t been engineered… Read more →
Sooner or later, all growing companies need more engineering capacity. Perhaps you’ve won a large new contract, or you’re ready to invest in a revolutionary product idea. Where should that engineering capacity come from? In general, you can ask your current staff to work more hours, add headcount, or use an engineering services firm to perform the extra work.

As stated in a previous post on cold temperatures and equipment, low temperatures have an undesirable affect on ductile steels, making them more brittle. This is a problem in process piping, especially in Canada, with our large differences in summer and winter temperatures. It can however, be resolved by using special cold temperature-rated steels in pipes, but may not always be required. Careful reading of ASME B31.3 reveals interesting information that can be applied when using pipe outside of its intended design temperature. Read more →
Our low temperature blog article has been a big hit from around the world. I thought I would expand on the thought by sharing some good pieces written by other people. Please take a second and browse these links and let me know if you enjoyed them. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send me an email or leave a comment. Read more →
This is Part 2 of a series of posts on Sparta’s production management system for manufacturing. You may want to read or watch Part 1 in this series before continuing.
In this video, I elaborate on some of the advantages of using an advanced production management system. I outline our production workflow and how the system increases the efficiency of the manufacturing process. Before watching the video, I encourage you to download the excel file to follow along with the video (optional but recommended)… Read more →
