Chemical plant engineering deals with the technical implementation of installations and is a wideranging branch of the economy. Chemical plant engineering is a significant economic factor in Germany and worldwide. The process technology installations in Germany yield approx. 50 % of the entire industrial production.
Chemical plant engineering can be roughly divided into the fields of mechanical plant engineering, chemical plant engineering, thermal plant engineering and miscellaneous plant engineering. Petrochemical installations, power stations and beverage filling installations may be cited as examples. From an economic viewpoint, projects in chemical plant engineering are to be found in the budget framework between just a few hundred euros and several billion euros. Typical specialist fields of chemical plant engineering deal with energy technology, electrotechnology, mechanical engineering, supply technology, production technology and process technology.
Nearly all technical materials are utilised as materials in chemical plant engineering. For example, extremely wear-resistant materials or clad components are frequently utilised in mechanical plant engineering.
In thermal plant engineering, the components are frequently exposed to very high temperatures. Highly creep-resistant or austenitic steels and nickel-based alloys are utilised in this case, e.g. T24. Materials with extremely corrosion-resistant properties are frequently processed in chemical plant engineering, e.g. materials in the 1.45 and 1.48 groups.
During the implementation of company strategies, particular significance is attached to the correspondingly qualified and trained specialist personnel, from the welding engineer right up to the welding supervisor for automated installations for submerged arc welding, the corrosion protection inspector as well as correspondingly qualified testing supervisors and qualified welders. With regard to special tasks in welding technology, GSI provides you with competent advice and supports you during the selection and development of suitable welding processes. We also have worldwide activities in the field of construction supervision. For your further education, we regularly stage conferences about chemical plant engineering.
GSI provides you with support and advice with regard to all questions for everything to do with the subjects of materials, joining processes, testing procedures, corrosion protection as well as personnel qualification and training.
We are looking foward to you and your questions.
