Project Scope:

Bunge transforms commodity oils and grains into quality ingredients for restaurants, bakeries, foodservice, food processor and retail markets. Bunge wanted to make a safer access to their Mac Filter unit during operation. The TSPC is a bag house unit used in their process. The bag house was modified by installing (8) quench tubes into existing ductwork. By cutting and welding on the required size flanges IPS was able to install the new quench tubes to replace the (5) existing rupture panels. The rupture panel patches were made of carbon steel. These panels were measured and pre-fabricated to match the existing radius of the TSPC. The panels were then welded into place once the shutdown window allowed and all fire risk had been eliminated. This modification allowed Bunge personnel access to perform work on the platform surrounding the TSPC during normal operation instead of limiting the access to shutdown periods. IPS self-performed the mechanical and millwright work.

IPS

Challenge:

IPS accommodated Bunge’s tight scheduling requests and completed work in a short 10-day shutdown operation while working in a confined space. IPS performed a multitude of various other projects within the facility during this same time frame.

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.
