  • Perform detailed equipment design calculations and specifications for unit operations such as reactors, heat exchangers, adsorption systems, distillation columns, etc.;
  • Perform and refine calculations and produce duty specifications for machinery, vessels, control valves, relief devices, and other instruments;
  • Support P&ID development, operability reviews, hazard reviews, and model reviews;
  • Interface with third party equipment suppliers and technology licensors;
  • Work with proposal managers, product managers, technology department, and procurement to support bid work, new technology implementation, and product competitiveness initiatives;
  • Support plant start-up and lead plant performance testing;
  • Domestic and international travel to customer locations and plant sites is expected about 15% of the time.
