Start-Up and Commissioning

Cross Company Start-Up And Commissioning

From the first conversation between your team and ours, we make every consideration to ensure the long term success of your project. We don’t just sell you a product, we make sure it’s up and running within your system.

After working with our team to specify the right equipment for your process application, our engineers can visit your site and work with you to ensure your equipment is running correctly in your system. In addition, our engineers have years of experience working with equipment in a wide range of applications, so we can help train your plant personnel on configuration, start-up, and basic maintenance.

At Cross Company Process Solutions, we’ve worked with a wide range of operations and in dozens of different industries. From legacy migrations to greenfield installations, we can provide the support you need to succeed.

Working With You to Ensure Smooth Transitions

When it comes to process manufacturing facilities, the transition from construction to operation is a critical phase. This is where the equipment, processes, and systems all come together. And it’s crucial that at this juncture, everything operates as intended.

No matter what phase of the startup or commissioning process you’re in, we’re committed to ensuring the long-term success of your project. We don’t just provide the equipment you need, either. We work with you for equipment configuration, loop checks, field troubleshooting, NIST-traceable calibration, and even asset management or data storage (if applicable).

We have extensive experience with process facilities within a myriad of industries. And we can work directly with you as an extension of your own team to ensure you’re set up for success.

Implementation of flow meters is a necessary part of flow management. These meters need to be installed optimally to ensure correct readings (which ensures efficient operations). Our experts have the experience and expertise to make sure that happens.

Not only are gas detectors necessary for monitoring the efficiency of your process, they can also save lives. In process facilities, the top consideration is always safety. That’s why it’s so important to work with professionals to ensure your safety equipment like gas detectors is installed correctly.

Creating Efficient Commissioning Processes

There are several stages to the process facility commissioning process. Generally, this includes pre-commissioning, the commissioning itself, and the actual startup. When you partner with Cross Company, we’ll work with you every step of the way.


This can include installation, equipment inspection, unit checks against designs, flushing, cleaning, pressure testing, functional testing, and simulations. It’s a critical phase for ensuring that all components and systems are ready for commissioning.


Commissioning involves daily on-site decisions. This includes attention to risk-taking, deviation management, financial control, and adapting to changes in the plant. In this stage, it’s necessary to work with a dedicated commissioning team like Cross Company.

Startup and Post-Commissioning

The initial period of operation following commissioning is an equally important phase. This involves determining ease of operation, if additional equipment is needed, checking for deterioration, and the transfer of “as-commissioned” documentation.
