Process Design

PROCESS DESIGN IS THE CORE OF OUR FIRM

Process design has always been a hallmark of Dennis Group, and process engineers comprise more than a third of our technical staff.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

  • Complete 3D process equipment and piping design fully integrated with facility and building systems
  • Process mechanical design
  • Liquid and dry process/pneumatic conveying
  • Sanitation and clean in place system design (CIP/SIP)
  • Design of thermal process systems for liquids, pasteurization, sterilization, aseptic processing, roasting, evaporation and drying of food products
  • Food Safety HACCP programs and regulatory compliance
  • Design of plant central utility systems

CLEAN IN PLACE (CIP) CAPABILITIES

We work with a wide range of system configurations:

  • Fully skidded systems for smaller implementations
  • Centralized fully engineered solution centers in larger facilities
  • Hybrid systems with centralized solution tanks and satellite recirculation skids
  • Semi-automated systems utilizing process vessels as CIP solution tanks where capital investment of full skid is not justified
  • Systems for specialized equipment cleaning
