If you operate any type of utility or process system at your plant or refinery, there could be significant energy savings and safety catches uncovered after conducting a Pipeline Network Optimization Service (PNO).

With our hydraulic optimization services we:

  • Uncover day-one problems existing from original design
  • Avoid facility shutdowns due to system flow unreliability
  • Identify and correct all bottlenecks within the system
  • Utilize all energy and cost savings that are available
  • Increase the overall safety and ROI of the facility
  • Maximize the useful life of your fluid flow systems

With a PNO, you receive up-to-date computer simulation models that represent the current operating performance of each system along with multiple simulated scenario models ensuring that recommendations to system deficiencies will result in desired performance. The reason EPI is so successful at conducting these types of projects is our ability to perfectly tune our simulation models to represent current day operations providing us with accurate pressure and flow rates at each point in the system(s). Without this vital data there is no way to determine if a recommendation can be proven to be effective.

Given that we know accurate flow rates and pressures at any given point in the system, we are able to run simulated scenarios that determine the performance of the system after making recommended changes. Some of our clients have said, “We didn’t know this was possible” and “This is amazing” after reviewing all completed models and reports. Even better, we offer a low-cost maintenance program to ensure all computer models are updated and simulated scenarios are run and analyzed to ensure that proposed future expansions and/or changes will lead to the result you are looking for.

Systems including cooling water, steam, condensate, boiler feed water, process water, compressed air, nitrogen, fuel gas, flare, fire water and city water systems are all potential candidates for the identification and utilization of potentially large energy savings. Many of these systems can also directly impact the production levels of your entire operation in a positive or negative way. These facts indicate why every pipeline network at your facility plays a critical role in the operational success of your facility and deserves the same care and attention as your process systems since they are heavily dependent on the hydraulic performance of your pipeline networks.

Fluid flow pipeline network services we specialize in include, but are not limited to:

  • Cooling Water Systems Analysis & Optimization
  • Steam Systems Analysis & Optimization
  • Condensate Systems Analysis & Optimization
  • Boiler Feed Water Systems Analysis & Optimization
  • Fuel Gas Systems Analysis & Optimization

Since 2002, EPI Engineering has saved our clients millions in a variety of ways, including but not limited to: increasing production, reducing energy consumption, and reanalyzing other engineering firm’s recommendations that called for unneeded capital investments. These savings are possible due to our many years of experience working with these types of systems, and through the superior software technology we utilize for our pipeline network optimization projects.
