Process Equipment and Plant Design

Process Engineering and Plant Design Services

In addition to supplying and installing process equipment, SN Engineering also offer plant equipment design as a service. Our team of Mechanical Designers can draft bespoke 2D and 3D process plant designs, using our extensive range of loading bellows, dust control & filtration equipment, bulk storage silos, pneumatic conveying systems and more.

SN Engineering have the capability to not only supply plant equipment designs, but cater for complete turnkey projects, involving civil & electrical engineers. Using SN Engineering for process equipment and plant design gives our clients a single point of contact, to simplify communication & reduce the time taken to manage the project.

For clients thinking of outsourcing their plant equipment design, the SN engineering team are perfectly placed to assist. Our team have supplied process equipment and plant designs to some of the UK’s largest Engineering brands, with the majority of our personnel having some 25+ years practical experience in the design & supply of various process facility projects.

We have a proven track record of achieving project briefs on time & in budget, so if you would like to see reference sites &/or client recommendations, these are readily available.


SN Engineering have the capabilities to support new build bulk and flat storage facilities from the ground up. We have helped over a dozen UK processing plants manage their sites, supplying process equipment and plant design services. These processing facilities were specially designed to deal with bulk powder conveying. These client sites are designed to receive bulk product either from multiple rail cars or ship, typically for c 4000 > 15000m3 of product. By supplying a range of conveying systems such as pneumatic and screw conveyors, as well as storage silos, dust filtration equipment and more, we can offer complete plant equipment designs with installation already considered.


Predominantly for ship > shore, often allowing for clients redundant commercial property to be brought back on line & give positive input into clients business profitability ( as opposed to ever decreasing property portfolio value ) thus keeping stakeholders &/or shareholders a good ROI.


From single 3000m3 units to twin 500m3 with direct road vehicle loading to multi nest facilities for c 8000 – 15000m3 storage. Designed & manufactured in such a way as can be transhipped to any location around the globe. Even silos for very high risk earthquake regions can be designed, as recently installed in New Zealand


For sites that are either restricted by height regulations &/or have poor ground conditions which would result in excessive civil requirements for traditional silo type facilities – often just the piling / civil cost for traditional silo storage would render the project as non-viable.


Numerous pneumatic conveying projects – from small scale batching ( c 1tph ) of specific small quantities of additives thru’ to large scale ( 200tph ) continuous conveying @ c 320m linear.

The above, generally, have involved our expertise across all disciplines of storage ; conveying ; blending & packing &/or bulk loading for onward shipment to clients customers. All our large scale equipment, such as silos, are designed and certified in accordance with latest Eurocode regs & all structural steelwork manufactured in accordance with latest CE regulations.
