Engineering Services



De Dietrich Process Systems has the capability to provide a system of equipment based around one or more of our core technologies: glass-lined reactors and other glass-lined components, filter-dryers, and glass reactors and components.  These core products are integrated with process utilities, instrumentation, electricity, automation and other peripheral equipment to create a customized process solution. Our wide range of engineering expertise (process, mechanical, controls, etc.) enables us to efficiently manage a project from start to finish.  We've developed a comprehensive approach to our engineering services that combines operational performance with cost optimization, allowing projects of any scope - from small reactor systems to kilo labs and pilot plants to process systems - to be completed on time, in adherence to customized process specifications, and within budget constraints.
