Consulting Engineering

consultDickson Industrial Insight & Innovation Inc. (DI3) has experience with consulting engineering firms that goes back to the days of pouring over tall stacks of printed ‘specs’ and the accompanying roll of drawings. 

DI3 draws upon a group of manufacturers equal to the task so that from the very onset of any enquiry or project, the fundamentals of an open and progressive design experience are established during the very first conversation.


Experience with all manner of projects allows DI3 to respond within an hour or two if your client requests 'just a ballpark price and a typical drawing’ while also having the patience and good faith to work cooperatively on international projects with sales horizons measured in years.

Often, when called in to review preliminary designs, DI3 has the insight to discover subtle flaws that would have been revealed only upon commissioning. As well, demonstrating an innovative approach requires genuine confidence to suggest alternatives and this expertise has allowed engineering firms to improve their proposals and increase their chances of securing and delivering trouble free projects


Responding to the very real demands of project managers as they advance their projects and the obligation for impeccable documentation is not always easy. Adhering to the highest ethical standards, while overseeing the paper trail, is standard operating procedure at DI3.

TerraSource Global is the umbrella corporation for Gundlach Crushers, Jeffrey Rader (Vibratory Feeders) and Pennsylvania Crusher. These three companies have a broad range of experience in mining, aggregate, coal, cement, talc, potash and many other materials; they have established the highest standard for design, performance and reliability with their size reduction systems and the feeders that allow them to operate at optimum levels. 

VAC-U-MAX HEPA Industrial Vacuum Cleaners are considered an acceptable engineering control to support compliance with OSHA and ministry regulations. Best industrial hygiene practices recommend using HEPA Vacs when managing dusts that pose explosion or ignition hazards. VAC-U-MAX can offer vacuum cleaning systems for Class II, Division 2 environments typically found with sugar, flour and starch use. Tools for wall, ceiling, rafter and equipment cleaning are available. HEPA vacuums have the highest protection of any industrial vacuum on the market.

Macawber Engineering pioneered the use of dense-phase pneumatic conveying when asked in 1974 to convey 3” lump coal. Successful installations around the globe now number more than 6,000 and they easily manage the transportation of ash, minerals, cement, foundry and fracking sands, raw and prepared foods as well as coke, biomass and related fuels.

Knowing the difference between vacuum, dilute and dense-phase conveying systems and the criteria to determine their use is critically important if your client’s design is to be perfect. DI3 has the experience that will allow you to justify your equipment selection while optimizing your overall design. 

OHIO Magnetics offers a complete range of lifting magnet systems capable of handling all manner of ferrous materials. These may include: billets, slabs, plates, coils, ingots, grinding media, recycling scrap, etc. Since 1917, they have earned their reputation and are the recognized champion in the field of magnetic lifting systems.   

Stearns Magnetics offer a comprehensive line of tramp iron removal systems which include magnetic pulleys, chute magnets, magnetic drum separators and ‘over-the-belt’ magnets with each system either protecting downstream components like crushers and coolers from damage or with some recycling processes, are reclaiming valuable materials.  Stearns Magnetics compliments this offering with wet magnetic drum separators systems for use in slurry processes. 

Getting large or complex pieces of equipment to perform exactly as designed is an absolute ‘must happen’ in this marketplace. Diplomatically insisting upon acquiring the correct application data has contributed to decades of trouble-free start-ups and exceptional performance histories.
