FAQ

  • Zeton uses AutoCAD from Autodesk for PFD and P&ID development, and AutoPLANT from Bentley and AutoCAD Plant 3D from Autodesk for 3D plant (skid structure, equipment layout and process piping) design. Zeton also has experience with PDMS software for plant design from AVEVA. Zeton uses EPLAN for electrical design.
  • Zeton is a technology neutral company by design. As such, we take a benign intellectual property (IP) position so as not to compete with our customers. Our customers own the specific process technology used in our plants, or license the technology from others. Furthermore, Zeton does not own or actively develop process IP. Any process technology or innovation that is developed through a project belongs to our customer. Furthermore, our customers’ proprietary technology is covered by a non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement. Our employees are regularly briefed on the importance of protecting our clients’ IP, not just during a project, but also long after the project is finished.
  • Following arrival of the plant module(s) on site, Zeton offers the services of our engineers and craft technicians for site installation and start-up support on a reimbursable cost basis.
  • In parallel with the ISBL scope managed by Zeton, we recommend our customers select a local EPC to work on managing the OSBL scope. For larger pilot and demonstration scale projects, the OSBL scope includes managing the site civil works; arranging for necessary site permits and utilities; contracting a rigging company, and managing the skid installation and tie-ins; start-up and commissioning of the plant, with support from Zeton, as requested; and interfacing with local authorities for final site approvals.
  • Zeton’s Canadian operation is an authorized manufacturer of ASME pressure vessels, and we frequently fabricate small-to-medium pipe vessels requiring ASME certification.
  • To see a list of current codes and standards followed at Zeton please see our External Accreditations.
  • Quality Assurance is an essential part of our business. Zeton has ISO 9001:2008 accreditation with SGS in Canada, and ISO 9001:2015 accreditation with DNV in The Netherlands. Our staff work hard to maintain external quality accreditation that support our ongoing business and license to operate.
