Process Design

Process Design

Strata’s process engineering team will work with you to develop your ideas into a process design. With decades of experience, we provide services in support of fundamental research to enable scale-up and commercialisation of your research processes.

All services offered are available on a consultancy basis or part of a fixed price work package. Below are the typical milestones and deliverables for a design and build project, followed by a list of offered services.

Conceptual Design and Feasibility Studies

Strata engineers will work with you to develop your ideas into a process design. Services include process schematics, developing process flow diagrams, mass and energy balances and providing preliminary budget and equipment sizing information.

Front End Engineering Design

We will produce a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) package from the conceptual design which can then be developed into P&IDs, basis of design, control philosophy and Functional Design Specification. Design and safety reviews, HAZOP studies and a cost estimate to build, install and commission would complete the package.

Detailed Design, Build and Commissioning

As part of the detailed design stage, we produce detailed equipment sizing and line sizing calculations, selection and specification of process equipment, relief device assessments and relief device sizing calculations. The process engineering team will support the project team through the entire project lifecycle by overseeing procurement and build activities through to installation and commissioning.
