Project Scope:

Heinz in Freemont, Ohio contracted IPS to increase the efficiency of the homogenizing process, decrease the power consumption, install 11 VFD’s and new electrical feeds to the Homogenizers and change the feeds over from old to new during shutdown periods. We were able to provide the customer with a cost savings benefit based on the power consumption being reduced and the project being installed by well trained professional craftsman.

Challenges:

The Heinz plant had tight congested areas to work and employees were working over and around functional equipment. IPS Met the challenges by careful coordination with the plant and the IPS Safety department to make certain no one was hurt, and no equipment was damaged. There also were irregular schedules for shutdown windows. IPS Met the challenge by working long shifts at different hours of the day and night to make sure the plant was back on line for production as scheduled.

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.
