Modular Process Systems
If you say module, some think only of a little pump skid or utility skid. But these are not your grandfather’s process modules; quality and design have come a long way. These installed 3,000 gallon reactor system modules have the same appearance and operation as a stick-build project; however, the modular approached saved considerable cost and reduced the project schedule by 2-3 months.
Pfaudler has over 120 years of process equipment design & fabrication expertise combined with over 50 years modular process system design & fabrication expertise to provide your process solution.
Benefits of Pfaudler Modular Process Systems
Firm, Fixed Price
No surprise costs at the end of the project.
Single Source Responsibility
All engineering and fabrication disciplines are in-house. This means minimal lines of communication and responsibility which provide for efficient project execution and fully integrated, properly designed and properly functioning systems.
Fast Track Projects
Pfaudler's project management experience and single source responsibility provide for smoothly run, fast track projects.
Pfaudler has over 120 years of expertise in the design and fabrication of process equipment such as glass lined reactors, mixing systems, condensers, exchangers, wiped film evaporators and dryers. Pfaudler's Engineered Systems group has over 50 years expertise in the design and fabrication of modular process systems for all unit operations for many different industries including pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, petrochemical, biopharmaceutical, nutraceutical, fats and oils, food, waxes, resins, etc.
Compare the 3D rendered pictures of the approval drawings with the installed pictures for this 500 Gallon Glasteel® Reactor System Module for the Specialty Chemical Industry. 3D layout of process modules makes drawing approvals easier and ensures proper layout.
3D CAD Layouts
Pfaudler uses 3D CAD for the module layout design. Because the designer works on a single model, 3D CAD reduces design cycle time, reduces possibility of drawing error, and ensures the proper layout for the process and proper layout for ease of operation and maintenance. 3D-rendered views greatly simplify customer drawing review. What you see is what you get!
Shop Quality Construction
Pfaudler modular process systems are assembled in climate controlled shops so there are no weather delays. There are more and better tools and materials right at hand, no treks back and forth from the process area to the staging area for materials or tools. Work is performed by multi-discipline crews who work together on every project. This allows for work to be performed far more efficiently providing higher quality and shorter project schedules.
Lower Overall Project Costs
Modules minimize field work. Couple this with the use of highly efficient shop labor and you shorten project schedules and lower project costs.
Shortened Down Time For Installation
Field work is minimized thus reducing the hidden costs of interruption of adjacent processes in existing facilities.
With our 50+ years of modular process system design experience we have gained expertise in conserving real estate while providing ergonomic module layouts for optimum operability and maintainability.
Pfaudler designed and provided this entire process plant which consisted of four (4) process modules and field installed tanks (up to 20,000 gallon) as well as field installed piping and instrumentation.
Future Duplication & Portability
Pfaudler's modular process systems provide single source responsibility make future expansion or relocation to another facility easier and more cost effective.
