Scientists working in R&D cannot be expected to know what information is required by engineers to enable them to design equipment.
A real example from our experience in a new product’s development by a client where process conditions and stream analysis were comprehensively researched and reported, and no stream specific gravities (required for vessel sizing and pump power requirements) were measured. By the time this was pointed out, all samples had been disposed of. This could have been avoided by a comprehensive checklist of design data requirements.
As a design-focused engineering firm, Logichem can guide the Client’s personnel in this respect.
Our experience has shown that early involvement with Client’s R&D programs can ensure that the necessary data are identified and included in projected R&D outcomes to enable seamless progress to Process Development, Preliminary Equipment Design, Utility Requirements, Cost Estimating, Plant Layout and Plot Plan requirements to enable Feasibility Evaluation by the Client.
