This blend of skill sets combined with expert problem solving capabilities is a unique strength that enables us to assist our customers from Concept to Practice.

Coupling Experiments with Process Models: Accelerating Process Development and Problem Solving
Traditional chemical engineering approaches to process development and solving manufacturing problems have relied extensively on lab and pilot scale experiments, plant observations and empirical correlations. This approach in our experience has been extremely time consuming and expensive and provides a very limited perspective on the cause and effect relationship. There is minimal opportunities to reduce trials and to get the design RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.

With advancements in computer simulations and modeling techniques, it is now possible to couple experimental data and plant observations with high fidelity process models to gain deep insights into the process. Our customers have realized significant benefits through our integrated approach to process design and problem solving. Experiments are still a critical element to process design.

Process Development: Core activities in process development include:
  • Recipe Optimization
  • Process Design and scale up
  • Conversion of batch to continuous processes
  • Design Lab and Pilot Scale Equipment
Manufacturing:
  • Debottleneck unit operations
  • Improve yield and conversion and minimize byproducts
  • Solve product quality issues
  • Quantify impact of critical control parameters on process safety
