European leading Engineering and Design Office for

Heat Exchangers - Pressure vessel - Engineering


Hitard is capable of performing vessel and heat exchanger design and analysis, for a broad range of applications,as well as the analysis of individual components, wind or seismic analysis, analysis for horizontal shipping of vertical vessels. We also do thermal, bid and mechanical design calculations of vessels or heat exchangers.

Each calculation is evaluated using at least 2 software packages to ensure the highest quality of output results and to provide greater security.

• Compress
• PVElite / CodeCalc
• OhmTech VVD
• AutoPIPE Vessel / Microprotol
• FE-Pipe / Nozzle-PRO
• Finglow
• Caesar II

Proposal Support

Situations occur where clients receive many proposals but do not have the capacity anymore to process them. In that case Hitard can provide assistance in preparing the proposals and the technical requisitions.

We will follow the client's guidelines to prepare the necessary information to complete the documentation:

• Construction type
• Material selection & PMA's

• Wall thickness calculation
• Setting plan & Shopping list

• Requisition preparation
• Engineering man-hours or lump-sum cost

The client, using the information prepared by Hitard, goes out for bids and receives the pricing from manufacturers.

Based on the services and information prepared by Hitard, you can quickly assess the overall complexity of the equipment construction and calculate the total cost in materials and in man-hours, and do the final pricing.

Due to our know-how and most renowed computer software we are capable of providing bid calculations within 24 hours, based on your datasheets, with accuracies suitable for your budget estimations so that you can respond fast to client quotations requests.
