Process Engineering Services

The purpose of this article is to outline the engineering services White Mountain Process (WMP) can offer and whether or not those services can help. Poorly designed mixing processes can lead to inefficient mixing, non-homogenous mixtures, long process times, product contamination, tank failures, and out of specification products. Upfront design costs are small when compared to expensive post production fixes.

There are many parameters to consider when designing a mixing system such as types of materials of construction, what mixers are appropriate, and proper scale up calculations. The wrong type of tank material can lead to leaks and product contamination. Some products may require multi-shaft mixers if the viscosity is too high. Different products require different types of impellers and shear force for proper mixing. Heat transfer considerations also need to be taken into account especially with high shear mixing in plastic tanks which require a cooling circuit.

WMP offers a wide range of engineering services to help with the design and specification of mixing applications.

Our services include:

 

  • Initial visit and overview of equipment to meet your needs.
  • Mixing, Tank, Mixing Drive, Impeller Calculations.
  • Materials of Construction (HDPE, PP, PTFE, or Stainless)
  • Disperser type (High vs Low Shear, Single vs Multi-shaft)
  • Tank and Impeller Design
  • Lab testing and scale up calculations.
  • Detailed Report with recommendations.
  • P&ID for the processes considered.
  • Control System Process Design

A short phone call can determine the level of services which might be appropriate.
