Important Notice of Policy Change

Effective January 1, 2014, the policy relating to Maintenance and Support for eTaskMaker® and ATC Professional™ will change as follows:

Even though subscribing to the Maintenance and Support service is optional and can be discontinued at any time at the expiration of a paid period, if after lapsing for some time it becomes necessary to reactivate said service, then all previous time periods of interruption must be satisfied (plus the new period) before service can be reinstated at the current fee rate, which remains at ten percent of total (current) licensing fees.

We are confident that our many users in the petrochemical community will find it a fair way to contribute towards our development efforts that add continued value to our software and estimating data that returns increased benefits for a modest price.

eTaskMaker Module Updates for November

  • Contactor Reactor(new) For the inspection, repair and testing of a typical DuPont STRATCO Contactor Reactor consisting of a heat exchanger with a mixing head and injection nozzles.
  • Drums (Rev. 21)(updated) Now incorporates an option for manual cleaning (when the drum is easy to clean) and also includes tasks for covering up with a board a leg under the drum, for safety while other inspection and repairs are underway inside the drum.
