Remarkable features of our designs
Designed with safety in mind
Hytech performs rigorous analyses of different scenarios (normal operation, start-up, emergencies, etc.) which, modeled in through a proper simulation, allow us to design equipment, control philosophy, interlocking, and relieving systems that guarantee contingency management within established conditions and in compliance with local regulations and industry standards
Our designs have the added benefit of a control philosophy adapted to the process, which requires a sound balance of equipment size, utilities consumption, and product specifications.
We opt for control valves that handle changes in feed rates or in utilities supply without the intervention of operators, always rigorously simulating under the most extreme (probable) operating conditions.
Design of high- efficiency equipment
The goal of our Engineering designs is to maximize the efficiency of each piece of equipment and of the Plant as a whole. Though we provide tailormade designs for each case, we also analyze the possibility of using off-the-shelf equipment according to project requirement. Both in terms of schedule and efficiency. Whenever possible, we try to avoid extreme operating conditions in terms of temperatures and/or pressures, which consequently reduces utilities consumption, minimizes the total number of pieces of equipment and simplifies piping diagrams.
Designs customized to the needs of each client
Using calculation tools and starting with our client’s requirements, we perform in-depth analysis of the different alternatives. Because each alternative is properly simulated and each piece of equipment thoroughly designed, we can find the solution that best suits our clients’ investment and application needs. All our plants are customized to our client’s needs using proven technology
Using data obtained from rigorous test runs, we simulate the process to identify main limitations and restrictions. Based on those results, we advise on modifications to increase throughput, yields, improve product quality, and optimize the use of energy or additives consumption. Typically, only minor changes are required to improve plant efficiency
