Process engineering: optimizing industrial efficiency

Process engineering deals with the design, analysis, improvement and optimization of industrial processes involving the transfer of matter and energy.

It focuses on the transformation of materials with the input of energy:

  1. Process design: this stage involves the creation of new processes or the modification of existing ones. Aspects such as equipment selection, material flow, sequence of operations and control parameters must be considered.
    2. Process improvement: Once areas for improvement are identified, changes are implemented to increase efficiency, quality and safety. This may include automation of tasks, reduction of cycle times, elimination of bottlenecks and optimization of resources used.
    3. Process control with instrumentation: Control strategies and systems are developed to ensure that processes operate consistently and meet requirements.

Whether it is the analysis or design of chemical and thermodynamic process equipment, systems or facilities, SDEA provides comprehensive technical solutions throughout the entire project life cycle by offering complete process engineering, equipment design and piping services.

SDEA’s experienced and highly qualified engineers perform process engineering from process specification (PDS), flow diagrams (P&FD), instrumentation and piping diagrams (P&ID) to detailed drawings for manufacturing. In addition SDEA handles thermal and mechanical calculations as well as mechanical specification (MDS) of heat transfer equipment and process equipment:

  • Heat exchangers
  • Pressure vessels
  • Tanks
  • Reactors, columns and towers

Activities to be developed in the design of processes and design of static equipment for process.

  1. Design of equipment that requires HTRI software for energy and/or material transfer.
  2. Design by rules and international standards
  3. Design by FEA/CFD analysis
  4. Selection of commercial equipment to be included in process plants.
  5. Instrumentation selection and control panel design.
  6. Sizing and design of piping, flexibility analysis for design, selection of piping and supports.
  7. Necessary structural elements such as auxiliary structures, buildings and their foundations.
  8. Equipment layout and construction drawings
  9. Procurement management of equipment required for facility operation.
