Industrial plants and facilities need high quality, dependable fabricated equipment that meets their specs and gets the job done efficiently. There are numerous factors that affect fabrication quality including the initial design, the composition of materials used, the weld and assembly, and the expertise and capabilities of the fabrication company. Let’s take a closer look at each of these components and how they affect fabrication quality. The Design Any piece of equipment or product is only going to be as good as its design. If there are design flaws that make the product less efficient, less sturdy, or less functional, […]

A major concern for most industrial facilities and plants is efficiency and one of the most common efficiency-related problems is bottlenecks. A bottleneck occurs when a particular segment of production grinds to a much slower pace than the processes that come before and after it. Thus it is the bottleneck that is ultimately inhibiting production. Let’s take a look at some of the major strategies process engineers use to remove bottlenecks. Process Engineers Evaluate the Full System When confronting a production bottleneck process engineers evaluate the full production system not just the bottleneck itself. This is important because it provides […]

The quality and efficiency of industrial fabrication has a lasting impact on maintenance costs, future output, safety, and even overall profitability. That is why it is so important to choose a high quality company to perform industrial fabrication. Often the best choice is the original EPC company that built or serviced the facility. Let’s take a look at why. Industrial Fabrication Can Be Performed More Efficiently If the company performing EPC also performs the necessary industrial fabrication for the company this often results in greater overall efficiency. That is because the company already has all the information it needs about […]

Project managers have a diverse array of responsibilities during industrial projects. There is a huge amount of different factors at play during most projects and project managers often have a degree of responsibility for many if not most of these different functions. However, some responsibilities are more crucial and fundamental than other. Let’s take a look at some of the key responsibilities of project managers. Project Managers Monitor and Control Costs Cost is a key consideration for all industrial projects. Even extremely well-funded projects must keep one eye toward cost control to keep the project profitable and efficient. Project managers […]

In recent decades new, highly efficient energy generation models have been developed to address some of the inefficiencies and limitations of traditional power grids and energy generation. One such model is Distributed Power Generation or DG as it is often called for short. This process offers many great benefits, which we’ll look at in more detail below; however, in order to be possible, DG requires a fuel source of its own. That’s where natural gas and LPGs come into play. Let’s take a look at the role they play in the distributed power generation revolution. The Role of Natural Gas […]
