Iron Tracking Database - Flow Iron Analytics

TKS’s total flow iron asset management database includes Flow Iron AnalyticsTM (FIA) which currently monitors over 30,000 flowback, frac, and iron parts for our customers and their clients in the Marcellus, Utica, Permian, Eagle Ford, and other major shale plays. Launched in February 2014, the FIA tracking system was developed specifically to give our customers a platform to track iron pieces, recertification requirements, and test results. This database has proven to be an asset to the Oil and Gas industries by ensuring that iron parts used in the industry are recertified properly and are safe and up to date on their recertification requirements. This database enables our customers to enter and track all pieces of new and recertified iron owned by a client. Not only does the database serve as a way for a client to track their new iron assets, but also as a place to record test results for each piece of recertified iron. Pressure test results can be uploaded to the database and an historical record is available for each test performed on a recertified part. To ensure parts are tested at the required intervals, an automated email can be set up to remind the client a recertification test is due 30 days prior to expiration. The Flow Iron Asset Database provides flowback, frac, and other iron recertification shops with a comprehensive database populated to manage recertified iron reporting documentation. The following are key features of the database:


o Upload of Certificate of Compliance (COC)

o Upload of Mill Inspection Report (MIR)

o Upload Hydro-static Report
