Modular Process Capabilities

Process Engineering

Process Systems Engineering requires a wide range of knowledge in many areas to design efficient systems. Our strong base of process engineering talent has many years’ experience in the following areas:

  • Concept development
  • Intermediate processing steps development and process engineering systems
  • Material balances
  • Mass and energy balances
  • Process Flow Diagrams (PFD’s)
    • Sample P&ID for Modular Process ProjectEPIC develops process flow diagrams (PFDs) that indicate the general flow of plant processes, and specifies process equipment based off of the suitability to task with the proprietary process technology. Mass, and energy balances are calculated and piping and instrument diagrams (P & IDs) are developed to clearly define the scope of the process skid or plant project.[/toggle]
