Heat Transfer System for Pharma PlantTechnical consulting for process development

Heat transfer systems are crucial in fine chemicals production, providing to the process the heating and cooling medium to guarantee the reliability of the batch time and the final product quality.

A pharmaceutical company has invested in its italian plant to increase their production of API. For the new production unit, MEC has worked closed to the client to deliver the process and detailed engineering of the heat transfer system that provides the hot and cold water to the reactors and other process equipment.


Our engineers have been performing technical and engineering services as:

  • process design of the heat transfet system
  • process and mechanical engineering of the storage tanks
  • detailed mechanical engineering of the skids for heating/cooling distribution

Industry 4.0, which combines digital and physical advanced technologies, can potentially transform the chemicals industry, itself the backbone of many end-market industries. Through the dual areas of business operations and growth, these technologies enable “smart” supply chains and factories, as well as create new business models.

MEC is fully involved in promoting Technologies and Industry 4.0 within Energy market.
