If you watched our video introduction to Biotech Emporium you would know that this is the core around which our business revolves. Our track record speaks for itself with tha many award winning and highly successful projects, not only in Africa, but all across the globe.
If you are looking for the best partner to take your process to new heights, you’ve come to the right place; Biotech Emporium.
A project usually starts with the development of a process. That process design then serves as the blueprint around which we design the machines and the factory to produce the product. So let us take a wide glance at what these processes are and how they fit together.
Any project is only as good as the process en mechanical design of that process. A good process design will lead to a good mechanical design that in the end will deliver a high value product with high profit margins. Get either wrong and there will be a very low profit margin if any. To better understand, let us look at what these to design processes are.
Process engineering is the understanding and application of the fundamental principles and laws of nature that allow us to transform raw material and energy into useful products. By taking advantage of the driving forces of nature such as pressure, temperature and concentration gradients, as well as the law of conservation of mass, process we can develop methods to process unusable products into usable products. Some good examples of our work include the award winning Coal dust to pellet fuel process we developed for SASOL, the hose stable bedding to heat process we developed in Finland and the human sewage to heavy metal free fertilizer granulation process we developed for the previous South African government.
Mechanical engineering is the engineering branch that combines engineering physics and mathematics principles with materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering branches.
The mechanical engineering field requires an understanding of core areas including mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. In addition to these core principles, Biotech Emporium use tools such as computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing), Computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) and product lifecycle management systems to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery.
When Biotech Emporium design your new plant or a new add on for an old machine you will be able to see that as if it was already in place with our Augmented Reality system. Gone are the days of flat 2D and simple 3D paper drawings, Augmented Reality brings our designs to life long before the actual factory, machine or part is manufactured.
