Engineering & Design

Our 50 years of experience with heated piping systems and specialty fabrication has led to recognized expertise in heat transfer, fluid flow, piping design, and the ASME Codes. We employ a team of approximately 30 registered Professional Mechanical and Chemical Engineers, Code experts, piping designers, pressure vessel designers, and 2-D and 3-D CAD designers.

At CSI we design heated piping systems with proper routing of the heating medium, perform thermal analyses to determine steam/hot oil requirements, run hydraulic analyses to balance flow and specify orifice plates.

CSI Specialty Designed Inhouse Programs:

  • Finite Difference Models to analyse the heating / cooling of pressure vessels, storage tanks, knockout pots, bag houses and piping systems.
  • Manifold Optimization System (MOS), to strategically place manifolds in your plant and optimize your steam and condensate system.

Other programs utilized in our engineering and design services:

  • CFD, Computational Fluid Dynamics, modeling.
  • Stress Analysis, Ceasar II, and pipe support design per ASME B31.3 / B31.1.
  • ASME Section VIII, Division 1 pressure vessel design.

NOTE: Our engineering and design services are to strictly support our inhouse fabrication facility.  We do not compete with Engineering firms.
