How We Do It

Middough provides project solutions for various sectors within the Chemical Industry. Our industry experience includes grassroots facilities, upgrades or expansions plant revamps and retrofits, bottlenecking projects, turnarounds/shutdowns, first-of-a-kind technology commercialization and facility relocations.

We focus on developing long-term, problem-solving partnerships with our clients and establishing a team of professionals that have a thorough understanding of your processes, procedures, people, and preferences. This deep familiarity with your business and operations translates into innovative project solutions that significantly improve return on capital investment and speed to market.

Collectively, Middough’s chemical process engineers possess extensive practical expertise across a wide array of process technologies and the full spectrum of chemical unit operations. 

We work closely with our clients and technology licensors to develop innovative conceptual and front-end design packages that set up the later stages of project development for success.

Chemical Industry Leaders

Our chemical project solutions and chemical processing and engineering services include leadership from our experts on your most important projects to fit your specific needs from detailed design through project/program management, and procurement and commissioning. Each of our value-added services and specialties for chemical engineering projects works to deliver your projects on time and on budget with the highest quality.


Basic Chemicals

Basic chemicals are foundational commodities essential to the chemical and allied industries. Dyes, pigments, petrochemicals, and inorganics are typically produced in continuous processes, with high throughputs to achieve economies of scale. 

Middough understands the importance of integrating new projects into existing facilities with a minimum of downtime.

The scope of many of these projects is to replace worn equipment systems, or upgrade them to increase production capacity, reliability, and safety. We work closely with site stakeholders to plan and execute the engineering, purchasing, and construction activities, so that these projects are designed and installed safely and effectively.

Our experience with basic chemicals includes:

  • Alkalis
  • Carbon Black
  • Chlorine
  • Gum & Wood Chemicals
  • Inorganic Pigments
  • Organic Dyes

Specialty Chemicals

At Middough, our team of experienced engineers brings extensive expertise in handling a diverse range of specialty chemicals within the chemical industry, with a large portfolio of paints and coatings clients. With a proven track record, we excel in navigating the complexities inherent to these chemical compounds, ensuring efficient and safe processes throughout every stage of production and handling. 

Our experience with specialty chemicals includes:

  • Adhesives
  • Catalysts
  • Chemical Intermediates
  • Coatings/Paint
  • Plastic Additives
  • Polymers
  • Sealants
  • Water Treatment Chemicals

Industrial Gases

Middough has extensive experience in the industrial gas industry. We specialize in plant design and preparing detailed design engineering packages for Cryogenic air separation units (ASUs) that provide nitrogen (LIN & GAN), oxygen (LOX & GOX) and co-produce argon (LAR); Carbon Dioxide plants, cylinder filling, liquefaction, and air distillation systems for the rare gases, neon; krypton; and xenon. 

We are very familiar with High Purity systems used for semiconductor device fabrication. We specialize in cryogenic system design, including vacuum jacketed (VJ) piping, O2 piping design for velocity and cleaning, cold box layout and foundation design, cooling towers and water distribution, truck filling stations, flat bottom tanks (FBT), and air and water vaporization systems.

Our industrial gas team works with our clients on all aspects of the plant design, including permitting for zoning, construction, tall structures (FAA), and storm water (SWPP). UG/AG power distributions, Utility tie-ins, back-up system, instrumentation, and control and automation systems. We support construction planning for cold box preparation; supply of construction power, crane access, lift planning, and construction scheduling. We provide construction management, and support commissioning and start-up. 

Our experience with industrial gases includes:

  • Acetylene
  • Argon
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Helium
  • Hydrogen
  • Oxygen
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the professional services provided for our recent large expansion project. The Planning and Programming services provided, gave the entire expansion team a full understanding of the scope of the project and the impact across the entire manufacturing platform. These services were provided in the most professional manner and supported the project to be completed on time and under budget.
