Gradient Technology has developed a multitude of chemical processes and has designed, fabricated, and integrated numerous chemical plants for our clients. These systems have ranged in size from the laboratory and pilot scale to large-scale production facilities. Continuous, semi-continuous, and batch chemical processes have been integrated into modular, field transportable units as well as site-fixed systems. Implemented systems have included chemical reactors, evaporation systems, crystallizers, fermentation systems, heat exchangers, carbon adsorption and ion-exchange systems, as well as utility equipment such as steam boilers, air compressors, vacuum systems, and cooling towers.
As part of the design process, mass and energy balances, process flow diagrams, piping and instrumentation diagrams, equipment and instrument specification sheets, and design calculation reports are prepared. Following the detailed design phase, Gradient Technology can procure, fabricate, integrate, and test the systems per customer requirements.
Gradient Technology specializes in the design and development of unique processes that are typically subject to a variety of constraints such as footprint, available utilities, and operating conditions. Systems processing energetics require an additional level of process safety. As a result, process hazards analyses and fabrication requirements are carefully scrutinized and documented by our team of engineers, fabricators, and safety personnel so that safe and efficient chemical processes are delivered.
