Austin’s commitment to safety and precision is well-known in the industry. Our fully integrated team of experts designs, engineers and constructs complex process facilities throughout North America. We understand the critical nature of complicated piping and valving.
Austin’s team offers a menu of solutions for any project, including:
Austin has engineered and constructed more than 1.5 million feet of piping – including piping at the highest pressures and temperatures.
Our in-house team’s expertise and specializations include:
- Research and development bench scale
- Pilot plants
- Full production plants (brownfield and greenfield)
- PHA participation
- Process piping
- Utility piping
- Air separation and hydrogen plants
- Pipe stress analysis
- Liquids handling, loading and unloading
- 3D design
- 3D design utilization in the field
- Structural analysis and design
- Equipment and process integration
Those specialties are incorporated into our full-service engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) project delivery approach, which provides you with a single source of accountability and responsibility. As a result, Austin delivers projects faster, safer, more predictably, and at a better quality and value.
- Grassroots plant and facilities to produce the world’s highest purity fused silica glass, including implementation of new technology and moving from R&D to production scale.
- Plant expansion for 20 million pounds per year of acetic acid-based esterification product for cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food.
- Chemical production complex: 100 process projects over a six-year period, including caustic storage tanks, phosgene reactor projects, and CR39 optical resins plant.
- Grassroots NGL liquids handling, storage and railcar loading and unloading facilities at a fractionation plant.
- Addition of a SBU and cat cracker unit (CCU) to handle heavy crude at a refinery.
- A pilot plant, commercialization plant and greenfield production plant for a world-leading specialty chemicals producer, including implementation of new process technology.
- Restructuring of TDA production facility, which improved plant on-stream factor from <40% to over 90% and raised production by 30% through debottlenecking.
- Plant expansion to add production of stable isotopes used in medical testing. Project included complex chemical reactions and need to maintain tight operating conditions within and surrounding the distillation columns.
