E29_Design Elements_Alt

We excel in the field of Process Engineering, an essential aspect of engineering that focuses on designing, operating, controlling, and optimizing chemical, physical, and biological processes. Our dedicated efforts in this domain include:

  • Establishing the Process Design Basis: As a fundamental step, we define the core requirements for each process. This includes understanding the specifications for the end product, identifying the raw materials needed, determining the desired production capacity, and considering any other constraints or requirements. This crucial phase lays the groundwork for all subsequent design and engineering work in the project.


  • Developing Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs): Our team expertly crafts PFDs to illustrate the primary components and flow paths in a process. These diagrams offer a schematic representation of the entire process, highlighting the interactions between various equipment and streams. The PFD's we develop are integral for grasping the process at a macro level and for effectively communicating the process design to stakeholders.

  • Hydraulic Flow Calculations: These calculations are central to both the design and operation of the process. By accurately determining flow rates, pressure drops, and other hydraulic parameters in the process piping and equipment, Element 29 ensures that the equipment is not only adequately sized but also that the process operates efficiently and safely.

  • Equipment Scheduling: This task involves the meticulous selection and sizing of process equipment such as reactors, heat exchangers, pumps, and compressors. Our approach is rooted in a deep understanding of the process requirements and the specific characteristics of various equipment types. Proper equipment scheduling is key to achieving optimal process performance while also aiming to minimize costs for our clients. 

  • Preparing Lists and Diagrams: We compile a range of essential documentation, including equipment lists, instrument lists, and utility summaries. These documents offer detailed insights into the components used in the process, serving as vital resources for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the process plant.

At Element 29, our overarching goal in process engineering is to deliver a detailed, methodical approach to design and operational processes. We are committed to ensuring that our clients' projects are efficient, safe, and economically viable, reflecting our dedication to excellence in engineering consultancy.
