Process Engineering

We are redefining how things are done in industrial plant projects.

CADE’S process engineering capabilities comprises the following knowledge areas and activities applied on equipment and plant systems:

  • Chemical Processes
  • Thermodynamic Processes
  • Heat Transfer
  • Hydraulics

Whether object of study or design is focused on equipment, systems or facilities, the fact of counting with a deep process perspective allow CADE to deliver comprehensive technical solutions along life cycle of industrial assets, where defining and understanding of process requirements is a must.
