Optimize your process and equipment with help from Design20FIRST LLC of Cora, Wyoming. Our specialists use creative and cutting edge techniques to investigate, evaluate, design and modify your equipment, process and overall facility to improve energy efficiency.

Higher production, lower emissions, smaller carbon footprint, improved process safety, lower maintenance, and enhanced sustainability (all) often result from these improvements.

Innovative Engineering

Successful optimization involves root cause study, equipment troubleshooting, and brainstorming. 

Trade secret, invention, patent development, technology licensing, and final product implementation and realization are the main objectives of our involvement in your process....often with minimal investment in time and capital. 

Inventions can be mutually assigned as appropriate.  We work with your vendors through pre-arrangement.  We abide by your secrecy agreements.   


Our specialty is direct heat transfer to solids using direct-fired rotary and fluid bed kilns, dryers, and calciners and encompasses all associated combustion equipment, emissions control, heat recovery systems, and utilities. Also, (indirect) steam tube dryers and evaporators.  

However, we can energy optimize just about anything
