Process Industry

Our involvement in the process industry

In a highly competitive industrial context, numerical simulation is a major improvement in terms of competitiveness.

Process optimization can be decisive: performance improvement (efficiency), minimization of material costs or even improvement of reliability.

Our skills

Our knowledge of physics and numerical tools allows us to implement numerical models (mechanical, fluid, thermal and coupling) for various processes.

Heat exchanger, pump, pipe device, industrial equipment...

Mixing and chemical processes.

Phase change processes etc...
