Technology personnel have many years of design experience in a variety of
products, from the ultra deep vacuum industry to the process equipment industry.
Within the industries that we service there are a number of products that we can
provide, from small components to computer controlled large assemblies.
knowledgeable in the A.S.M.E. pressure vessel code, FEA analysis, and 3D solid
modeling, which are utilized for our design and manufacturing documentation.
can modify existing equipment to improve quality, performance
and in some cases improving strength and mechanical integrity to the equipment beyond
its original capability. There is a lot of equipment that is antiquated and
could use a state of the art upgrade. Refurbishing and upgrading existing
equipment is a specialty of Proequipment Technology.
approach is always a very practical one that is always backed up with stress
When a shaft is being designed it is sent through a deflection and
fatigue analysis. Highly stressed components are designed to
stress, fatigue and in some cases FEA analysis. Our ability to utilize 3D
a platform for analyzing our equipment for strength and ensures the fit up
is achieved without difficulty. When a pressure vessel is designed, we
utilize the latest pressure vessel calculations. The weld preparation and
welds all meet the A.S.M.E. established standards. Interference fits are modeled
and analyzed to ensure allowable stress levels are not exceeded during
have many years of experience designing and working on rotating equipment,
from vertical to horizontal single shaft mixers/reactors to twin shaft
mixers/reactors to extruders to planetary systems for the vacuum industry.
We are also highly knowledgeable in the various drive systems for this
equipment. Electric drives can consist of either Vector or Variable
Frequency Driver (VFD) controlled electric motors coupled to a speed
reducer directly coupled to the drive shaft. An alternative is a hydraulic
drive, which consists of a hydraulic motor directly coupled to the drive
shaft and powered by a hydraulic pump driven by a fixed speed electric

vessels and vacuum chambers from tabletop units to large 60-ton commercial
units are all in our portfolio. Pressure vessels can be made out of a
variety of materials from 516 Grd. 70 to 304L and 316L to Duplex stainless
steels to more exotic materials such as Inconel or Hastalloy. Vacuum
chambers are usually fabricated with 316L Stainless steel and have a
variety of configurations and internal components. Diffusion pumps and
cryogenic pumps are used and are backed by mechanical pumps.
Regardless of the vessel or chamber, Proequipment Technologies can
supply them with a variety of specifications including ANSI flanges,
sanitary fittings, electro-polished surfaces, mechanical seals, painting,
filters, discharge valves, feed and discharge single and twin screw
conveyors, vacuum feedthroughs, electron beam guns, ion sources and small
fixtures are examples of other
components that we can design and manufacture.
