Our Mechanical Team’s Strengths
Our team of Mechanical engineers and designers leverage their “out of the box” creativity to develop and implement cost effective, intuitive, robust solutions for mechanical challenges. From calculating the pressure drop for a pneumatic convey system, to analyzing the stress in an evaporator vapor duct, we have the skill set, knowledge base, and experience to fill your mechanical needs, large or small.
Whether your project involves a failure analysis of a mechanical component, or new component design, engineering a new dust collection system or resolving problems in an existing one, evaluating the stresses in an existing steam line or designing a new one for long term, trouble free lifecycle, we offer these and more services to solve your challenges.
