DESIGN, ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION TO SERVE PROCESS INDUSTRIES
Austin has engineered and constructed more than 1.5 million feet of piping – including piping at the highest pressures and temperatures.
Our in-house process engineering 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 from our process engineering consultants.
Austin’s team offers a menu of solutions for any project, including• Location consulting
• Design & Engineering
• Facility Maintenance
• 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.
