What We do

Process Control &
Optimisation:
Optimise productivity,
consistency, economy
and safety

Our process control and chemical engineering consultants will enable you to make the right flowsheet and equipment selections for your project. Whatever your industry. Whatever commodities, chemical or product you’re dealing with. Whatever the size of complexity or your control system project.

Process control and optimisation

What we do

With process control and optimisation experts spanning the mining, minerals, infrastructure and process industries, we have a wealth of proven process design and refinement experience, tools, strategies and tactics to draw on and tailor to suit your specific requirements.

Our expertise and suite of tools and tactics covers:

  • Process development, simulation, analysis and troubleshooting
  • Aspen Plus® Process Modelling
  • Flowsheet development
  • Mass and energy balances
  • Functional Safety to IEC 61508 and IEC 61511
  • PLC, DCS, SCADA and MMI programming and configuration

Making the process of process optimisation feel easy

Whether you need us to take a greenfields project from concept to completion, or require assistance with a specific process control issue within an existing plant, our process engineers will integrate seamlessly with your team.

As with all our project and process optimisation services, we’ll handpick a team of subject matter specialists to meet your unique project and process requirements – a team with the process design smarts needed to look at the process optimisation big picture, holistically.

How we approach process control and optimisation

Our team will conduct the appropriate process surveys, modelling and analyses, then we’ll use the insights gleaned from our investigations to identify bottlenecks and constraints. From there, we’ll provide practical solutions that optimise throughput and performance.

But crucially, we believe the very process of process control and optimisation is a collaborative one, which means we’ll work in partnership with you every step of the way, sharing our knowledge and findings to deliver a solution that adds tangible value to your bottom line.

Resources

Frontline process control experience. Next-gen digital optimisation tech.

Combine good science and frontline operational experience with the proven ability to challenge conventional wisdom and you have the ingredients for outstanding process control and optimisation. This is exactly what we offer our clients, complemented by the latest digital real-time analytics.

Think continual remote supervision and optimisation of plants in real time, so you always have an expert always onsite. Think parallel modelling and advanced data analytics to aid optimisation and set targets, with digital twins of unit processes and machine learning. Think staff training and mentoring (tacit training).

Industrial processes

Optimising industrial processes so you can optimise productivity

Decades of experience in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food and beverage, chemical and energy sectors means that developing designed-for-purpose industrial processes comes as second nature to our process control and optimisation teams. This includes the vital, often complex safety and risk management processes that are fundamental to plant operation and optimisation.

Infrastructure

A wealth of maintenance optimisation tools, tactics and experience

From first principles and design, to ongoing reviews and optimisation, our process control specialists will enable you to define and refine your asset management and maintenance processes. In addition to tactics, we have a suite of tools and a library of maintenance plans that we can put at your disposal.
