Highly experienced consultants applying cutting edge simulation tools to solve client’s challenges
Primarily Process Engineering focussed, Flex Process applies a combination of real-world practical engineering experience together with expertise in advanced process simulation tools such as steady-state and dynamic modelling, to solve our client’s difficult problems. We offer a unique range of services including traditional process design and engineering, process safety, and simulation and optimisation. All our services are linked by a common theme, the application of advanced simulation tools to provide more accurate and cost-effective solutions to our clients, all in one place. Flex Process acts as a single all in one place supplier for these specialist technical services, that together will solve your problems.
Flex Process understands that your priority is getting results. Although our Engineers really enjoy developing challenging simulations, our simulation expertise is just a means to an end; we believe that our clients are looking for practical, cost effective solutions to their problems and this is what our unique combination of services provides.
We believe in adding value for the client and in a long-term approach to solving the engineering challenges that industry is facing today. We believe in developing relationships based on trust; we build that trust by demonstrating the quality of our work, the attention we pay to our clients’ needs, and by operating in a transparent manner. We provide a flexible resource, reactive to our clients’ requirements.
We want to build on our track-record of quality engineering to provide our clients with the confidence that we will find the best solutions, and produce the best designs, while maintaining our reputation for being flexible and easy to work with.
Our advanced engineering expertise has made us the “go to” trusted partner for a multitude of companies across a diverse range of industries
Since our founding in 2007, we have assembled a highly skilled team of engineers, with many years of experience. Based in Bristol, we are able to provide services throughout the UK, Europe, and beyond.
We provide specialist services to the process and power industries. We have used our expertise to serve client’s needs in Chemicals, Iron and Steel, Biofuels, Paper, Nuclear, Refining, Terminals, LNG, Pharmaceuticals, Power, Distribution, and Offshore Storage & Production.
No client is too big or too small, we work closely with several small niche manufacturing companies as well as large multi-nationals.
“Our site required a mechanical assessment of vessels and pipework supports to determine if they were able to withstand the reaction forces developed during the lifting of pressure relief valves. Roger and his team of experienced Engineers were able to quickly formulate a work plan from our discussions and vessel schedules. From the onset of the project Roger was able to determine what key site data was required upfront. The meticulous planning of the project meant that during the main project phase, the involvement of site personnel was very limited. In the initial project phase, Flex Process summarised all of the process inputs into the modelling and utilised their own impressive in-house systems to calculate the PRV system capacities, backpressures and PRV thrust forces.
Throughout the project Roger and Ben were extremely knowledgeable, approachable, and only too willing to explain the work being undertaken, often in areas of engineering which were unfamiliar to the site. To date, the documentation associated with each stage of the project has been very comprehensive and presented in a highly professional format, which greatly assisted with the checking and approval of the work. Being a smaller company, Flex Process was able to adapt to our tight project schedule to ensure that our objectives were met. Working with Ben and Roger throughout the project meant that there was continuity in communications, allowing the project deliverables to be generated very efficiently.
We look forward to working on later stages of the current project and potential future projects with Flex Process.”

“Flex Process conducted a complex scope of dynamic process modelling in order for National Grid to understand the upstream implications of pressure uprating on Feeder 28 as part of the Western Gas Network Upgrade project. Flex Process provided a professional report and co-ordinated the various technical and financial inputs, including extensive liaison with third parties to agree the scope, modelling approaches and outputs. The report informed engagement with our upstream customers and ultimately helped ensure the Western Gas Network Upgrade strategic proposal is most economic and efficient for the end consumer.“
