Engineering Design

EnerTherm Engineering has a wealth of experience in designing machinery for the process industry. We have designed process heaters, ovens, dryers, dehydrators, heat exchangers and condensers.

What We Do

We design from first principles and generate bespoke calculations utilising our knowledge of chemical, thermal, mechanical and electrical engineering. We project manage new design from concept to manufacturing and follow them through to installation and commissioning. Our strengths reside in the development of new bespoke machinery where there is a certain aspect of research and development.

Our design process flow follows a structured approach where each step is signed off by our clients. From writing a functional design specification, reporting on calculation utilising our extensive CAE tools, testing and prototyping in the Allia Future Business Centre state of Art lab, running HAZOP and FMEA studies, manufacturing and FAT testing through our wide partners network, installing and final sign off.

Equipment Design

The team were approached by a leading producer of healthy, vegan and raw foods to investigate a production / quality issue in their current dehydrator.

The original production issue was related to air flow measurement. Measured data was simulated via Computation Fluid Dynamics and our predictive model was able to replicate existing production issues which gave our customer confidence to go ahead with EnerTherm Engineering for a complete re-design.

Thermal Design

EnerTherm Engineering were commissioned to design two thermal shields for nuclear waste oven treatments at the Sellafield nuclear power plant.

Our engineers were able to deliver a bespoke design solution which met stringent mechanical and thermal resistance requirements. They project managed the design, manufacture and shipping of the thermal shields to site, ensuring that the final product satisfied stress test loading under all operating conditions.

CAE Simulation

Our customer builds incinerators for cremation and disposal of bio-hazard waste materials. A 3D model was created to prove that the product was fit for purpose. Design and problem solving using Computer Aided Engineering enabled us to model air flow and heat flux for the client.

Let's Talk About Your Project

François Pierrel

Hi, my name is François and I am passionate about solving process engineering problems. Over the years, I have developed a number of process equipment and control systems which have had significant impact into reducing energy usage, waste and impact on the environment. My business ethos is to always get to the root cause of problems and data analysis and modelling is always at the fore front of any project we undertake.
