This team specialises in optimizing performance of existing and new heat exchanger networks, saving energy and improving yields.
CALGAVIN will first proceed with a plant Study & Survey.
This will consist of meetings to establish your expectations and aims as a client, and why your particular operation would benefit from a network analysis and revamp.
The study would consist of:
At this stage in the process the procedure would centralize around reviewing and modelling existing equipment form both thermal and mechanical perspectives. We would examine the current flow field for opportunities to reduce fouling & maldistribution during this phase.
A detailed engineering plan would then be drawn up outlining the requirements for a plant revamp. This would consist of intergrating a conceptual design with the reality of the flowsheet, apply tried and tested real world techniques to make this process as smooth a transition as possible.
This is the action stage, where once we have received an indication that you as a client are happy with our proposed modifications or if we have produced a new detailed report containing any amendments that you wish to make, we can then take this base and initiate the implementation.
The implementation step will focus around the investment criteria that you as a client feel will meet your needs and what level of return you are expecting to acheive through carrying out a revamp.
Throughout implementation of any methods used for enhancement we would provide supervision of any installation work required, and if requested will source the suppliers for equipment also.
Once all work has been completed, a follow-up evaluation will be carried out. A review into the new plant operations will be conducted, and this will contain:
