Professional Sizing made Simple

Professional advice

The CSE-Engineering Center of Safety Excellence is an internationally recognized specialist for the sizing of safety valves with a wide range of accompanying services. The team’s know-how is based on hundreds of successful sizing projects. Especially in particularly complex cases, we are often consulted by our customers in the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as by partners on the manufacturer side.

The range of our consulting and services covers the entire process of plant safety – from reaction calorimetric investigations and various design calculations to type testing of your safety valves.
