As many of our staff come from owner-operator organizations, they are familiar with the practical details of vessel internals and how they operate.  This include high temperature internals in Fluid Catalytic Cracking Units, as well as fixed bed reactors and a wide variety of other equipment.  We have experience performing the mechanical design for reactor vessel internals for a major licensor of process technology used in the refining [CBI1] industry.  We also have experience with refractory-supported internals.  Our sophisticated analyses capabilities combined with expert knowledge on failure mechanisms has enabled us to determine operation at more severe conditions than design, such as higher delta pressure on fixed bed reactor outlet collectors, was acceptable, permitting continued operation of the units.

Finite Element Analysis

Becht Finite Element Analysis
lick Valve for More Info

Becht Engineering has developed a reputation as one of the premier providers of Design-By-Analysis services.  We have a deep reservoir of staff that perfrom finite element analysis using commercial programs such as ABAQUS, ANSYS, SolidWorks and products of Paulin Research Group.  Types of analysis include linear and nonlinear analysis, stress, heat transfer and dynamics including seismic.

Given the many analytical tools available, we are able to choose the most efficient and cost-effective tool for the task at hand; for example, we frequently use non-linear analysis to develop more efficient equipment designs and/or to demonstrate that existing equipment is fit for service. Our extensive code expertise enables us to provide authoritative interpretations of the analysis results. Our experts include such frequently published engineers as Greg Hollinger, Trevor Seipp, and Dr. Charles Becht.
