Heinz is an American food processing company with world headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Heinz is most famous for its “57 Varieties” slogan and its ketchup. Heinz manufactures thousands of food products in plants throughout six continents.

Scope of work:

IPS was contracted to remove an existing 60,000 lbs per hour steam boiler at the Heinz Facility in Fremont, Ohio and replace it with a new 80,000 lbs per hour steam boiler.

Work included rigging, demolition, boiler installation, piping, structural steel, electrical, ducting, painting, and insulation. The existing boiler was cut apart using hydraulic sheers, plasma cutters, and hydraulic lifts were used to install the new boiler. Structural steel was installed for a brand new economizer and flue stack going through the roof.

Challenges:

Although space was very limited and there was only one overhead door for all items to be demoed and installed, IPS was still successfully able to complete the project

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.
