Project Scope:

Phase I consisted of a 1,300 square foot expansion to American Soy’s processing facility. This expansion would allow American Soy to more than quadruple their production capabilities from 4 tons up to 23 tons. IPS was responsible for the complete makeover of the whole facility as well as the installation of:

  • New high performance high pressure steam boilers
  • New high performance chillers
  • All air handling equipment
  • 500 feet of chilled water piping
  • All downstream equipment (palletizing equipment etc.)

IPS was also responsible for the development of the first Okara Dryer. This dryer enabled American Soy to turn soy bean byproduct from waste into animal feed.  Not only was this dryer a tremendous cost savings for American Soy, but it also allowed them to sell this byproduct to their consumers.

Expansion II consisted of upgrading American Soy’s 4-ton soy milk line to a 10-ton line. IPS used 100% sanitary food grade stainless steel, in addition to Tetra packaging equipment.

Challenge:

One of the major challenges of this project was maintaining the production process during construction. IPS was able to accomplish this task by developing a detailed schedule which integrated the owner’s production needs with that of IPS’s construction needs.

Project Scope:

IPS was contracted to construct a 40,000 square foot addition for Amcor’s plastic blow molding operations. IPS was responsible for the installation of 10,000 feet of process piping (carbon, stainless steel, and PVC). Systems include: process chill water, high/low pressure (600 psi/125 psi) compressed air, process cooling water, process steam, process condensate, and close tolerance process climate controls.

The machinery portion of the contract included the installation of: (3) 750 horse power three stage air compressors, (1) 250 ton process chiller, (1) 1,000 ton cooling tower, (2) 3,500 CFM built up custom air handler, (2) Sidel SBO 20 Blow Molders, (3) palletizing lines, (3) depalletizing lines, 1,000 linear feet of airveyor, and many other material handling and conveyance systems.

Challenge:

Along with a very tight schedule, these process systems had to be installed while the building was still under construction.  IPS also had to overcome the language barrier while working side by side with technicians from France, and Italy.
