JOC has always been one of the true leaders in heat transfer technology. We are not only users of internationally recognized software such as HTRI and BJAC, but we are contributors as well. Our unique experience with the special problems facing process and power plant designers allows us to offer innovative and economic solutions to perplexing problems. We perform thermal and mechanical rating of most heat exchangers we sell. We perform vibration analysis, seismic and structural analysis, and fatigue analysis in-house. We utilize programs such as ALGOR and IMAGES for sophisticated finite element analysis. Our solutions are always real-world solutions; those that work in practice, not merely on paper.
Quality Assurance is a way of life at JOC. Oat maintains certifications in ASME Sec. VIII Div. 1 and Div. 2, ASME Sec. III Class 1, 2 and 3, and ASME Sec. I and was one of the first companies to embrace the ISO 9001 standard. Our inspectors each have between 15-30 years of experience in NDE and are industry recognized as being the best at what they do. Oat never sacrifices quality for any reason.
