Our core area of expertise is in the development of Basic Engineering Packages (BEP) and Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) Package. We can develop the same based on technology data available from licensor, client R&D, Operating Plant or our in-house technology solutions.

   We are flexible on the scope of our packages, and typically we include the following:
     ► Design basis
     ► Process scheme
     ► Process simulation models
     ► Optimized Process flow diagrams (PFD) with mass and energy balance
     ► Utility and chemical consumption data
     ► Effluent summary
     ► Flare load summary
     ► Material selection basis and diagrams
     ► Process description
     ► Equipment list
     ► Equipment process datasheets
     ► Hydraulic calculations
     ► Piping & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) showing line sizes, line specifications, instruments, controls, valves, insulation, etc.
     ► Utility flow distribution diagrams and auxiliary diagrams
     ► Line list
     ► Instrument process datasheets including relief valves
     ► Relief valve and blow down valve calculations
     ► Process operation and control philosophy
     ► Maintenance & sparing philosophy
     ► Cause & effect diagram
     ► Safe Charts
     ► ESD philosophy
     ► F & G philosophy
     ► Piping service index indicating design temperature, design pressure, MOC for each fluid
     ► Conceptual equipment layout plan
     ► Preliminary plot plan
     ► Conceptual fire fighting requirements
     ► Fire water demand calculations
     ► HAZOP study
     ► HAZID study

     In addition to the preparation of complete FEED packages, we also offer the following front-end services:

     Based on finalization of the process scheme developed by client / third-party R&D teams, we scale up the scheme to develop commercial scale facilities. These involve systems like :

     ► Reaction systems :- For CSTR-type systems, scale-up considerations include uniformity in composition of the reaction mass including consistency in temperature. The mixture viscosity and density characteristics are critical. The mixing mechanism is also very important. Similarly for other systems, the key considerations to support the reaction behavior are taken in account during the scale-up process.
     ► Mass and heat transfer systems :- For systems requiring mass and heat transfer, the mechanisms for ensuring high quality and reliable mass and heat transfer uniformly throughout the system are considered during the scale-up process.

   Continuous processes generally offer several advantages over batch operations. Some of these advantages include:

     ► Increase in plant capacities with similar equipment
     ► Lower inventories and storage requirements
     ► Better automation and control opportunities
     ► Smoother operations with lower manual activities
     ► Smaller plant footprint

   The perceived downside of continuous operations is the reduction in operational flexibility. However, flexibility issues can be managed in other ways. We serve our clients to convert their facilities from batch to continuous operations to realize the above-listed benefits.

   We utilize industry-leading process simulation applications to model plant facilities. Our qualified team of engineers is well-trained in developing these models. The models are developed for various different objectives.

     ► Plant Design Activities :- During the design phase, we develop simulation models to study various design options for the plant. The purpose of this activity is to arrive at the most optimum design for the plant.
     ► Operations Decision Support :- The simulation model of the plant can be used to study options pertaining to plant operations. And, these studies lead to better plant operations and decisions pertaining to changes in plant operations.
     ► Plant Troubleshooting :- Often problems related to plant operational behavior can be modeled and analyzed using simulation tools. We develop simulation models to troubleshoot problems like these with best solutions.

   We utilize industry-leading software applications to design and analyze heat exchangers. We offer various types of design and analysis studies including:
     ► Thermal Design
     ► Vibration Analysis
     ► Mechanical Design, including development of fabrication drawings
     ► Exchanger Train / Network Design & Optimization

   Apart from end-customers, our clients for these activities include EPC companies and fabrication companies.

   Relief valve and flare network studies

   Design and rating of the safety relief valves and the downstream flare network system is a critical safety aspect of any processing facility. We offer services to design, rate and validate these systems using industry-leading software applications. We undertake the following activities.

     ► For the Relief valve – load calculations, backpressure calculations and orifice sizing.
     ► For flare system – network of flare sub-headers and headers, knock-out pot, seal drum and the flare stack.
