Process Industries Corporation (PIC) provides mechanical engineering services in a wide range of areas particularly a plant’s utilities: air, water treatment, steam distribution, and condensate recovery. Our experience in these areas comes from over 35 years in the design, engineering, fabrication, and installation of skid mounted systems:

  • heat exchangers
  • process pumps
  • CIP
  • chemical injection
  • reverse osmosis
  • water filtration and ion exchange

PIC offers the mechanical engineering and design experience necessary to provide complete package and system integration. Our mechanical engineering expertise includes:

  • Process Engineering: For each application, PIC will perform a process analysis to establish the basis for the design:
    • Mass Flow and Heat Balance
    • Required Flow rates
    • Equipment optimization
    • PFD and P&ID development
  • Engineering, Design, and Fabrication of skid mounted systems: Detailed mechanical engineering and design to develop detailed fabrication and installation drawings.
  • Preparation of equipment purchase requirements: Sizing and selection of pumps, valves (automatic, control, & manual), field instrumentation to allow for purchase (by either PIC or the end user).
  • Other mechanical engineering services include:
    • Pipe stress analysis of existing piping subject to transient and impulse conditions. The expansion of high temperature piping can have a dramatic effect on pump performance and process equipment connections. Dynamic conditions such as: water hammer and harmonic vibrations can have a major impact on piping; resulting in premature pipe failure.
    • Lifting and handling analysis: Analysis of equipment lifting during transport and/or installation can reduce damage incurred by improper lifting and handling methods.
    • Noise evaluation: A noise evaluation of a skidded system to ensure that a specified noise limit, usually 85 dba, one meter from the edge of the skid is not exceeded.
    • System pressure drop analysis. A study of pressure drop in a piping system can reveal pump discharge or suction problems such as cavitation and/or inadequate discharge pressure.
    • Computational Flow Dynamics (CFD) capabilities. Simulate flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces in real world conditions to troubleshoot or establish optimum design conditions.
