Process Piping and Design
Industrial facilities are continuously improving their nutritional, agricultural and chemical processes. From pilot plant design and scale up to safety reviews and upgrades, plant engineers have a broad range of process requirements. These processes must be designed safely, hygienically and economically. Balancing future capacity requirements and initial capital investment is key to meeting the necessary project return on investment or payback rate.
Our industrial and food grade experience with process piping, safety reviews, hygienic design and equipment testing will help you choose the ideal solution for your process needs. Research and development knowledge, maintenance and operations equipment experience and engineering requirements are coordinated in one cohesive design that satisfies your project needs. From tank farms, tanker and rail car loading or unloading, drying, extraction, viscous pumping, chemical containment or waste treatment, we can provide the design and documentation you need.
Because Shive-Hattery is a full service firm, your site plan, process design, layout and building plans will be coordinated from the beginning with BIM management. This minimizes communication issues and identifies conflicts early in the design. When new equipment is selected, vendor testing will take the guess work out of cycle time analysis and batch run time. You will have the information you need to identify the most economical combination of equipment and automation to limit your initial capital expenditure and maximize your flexibility and profit.
You save time and money with fewer last minute conflicts and changes during construction when safety, cleanability and maintenance are considered earlier in the project. Using your symbology and design standards results in final documentation that combines seamlessly with your existing system. By integrating process piping, layout and design with site and building plans from the beginning, you will have a coordinated solution to facility improvements.
