Our Engineering Services for the Oil and Gas Industry

Often our clients find it beneficial to utilize a combination of our services for their custom projects. Below is an example of a new SCR being evaluated through CFD modeling and tested in our lab, prior to implementation at a refinery site.

CFD models can also be used on their own to assist with design decisions in the planning stages. In this example of a WHRU, the Airflow Science's team was able to show a final design with the best flow uniformity.
