FRPD is an engineering consultancy specialising in process engineering. We find the places where engineering, business and information science intersect to create Turnkey Innovation.
FRPD has been involved in projects as diverse as packaging materials plant design, novel continuous metal electrowinning design, food processing and automation, natural resource value chain development, master toolmaking, mechanical design and manufacture as well as CAD services.
We’re a chemical process engineering consulting company with specialised focus in a number of areas from process development to business information systems, computational fluid dynamics and chemical formulation and evaluation.
Our dynamic and streamlined corporate structure enables us to take full advantage of market opportunities as soon as they become available, even when they fall outside our usual scope of speciality.
FRPD provides Turnkey Innovation – a combination of engineering, business and information services that result in the creation of innovative solutions that are ready to be scaled to production capacity. This solution includes project management, business development, product development, pilot plant development, owners engineering and funding applications (study promotion).
Electrowinning is based on intellectual property developed more than 100 years ago; working in a semi-batch fashion and requiring manual operation and heavy lifting equipment.
A novel technology was developed at the University of Pretoria that produces copper on a continuous basis; negating the need for extensive operator interface and heavy lifting equipment. This leads to higher operating efficiencies and most importantly increased worker safety. Other metals we’ve tested include platinum group metals, gold, silver, nickel, zinc and cobalt.
