Project Scope:

When the team at Johns Manville’s Innisfail, Alberta plant had fibrous materials coming off the existing Horizontal Electronic Rotary Melt (HERM) process lines, they knew a long-term solution was critical. The fibrous material would collect on the roof and had the potential to drain into the plant’s storm water system.

Johns Manville selected IPS to deliver a turnkey solution under an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract. IPS’ approach involved design and installation of three new process scrubbers to prevent the fibers from being emitted into the air.

The scope of work involved engineering and procurement of all equipment, and construction of the new process systems, inclusive of: civil, concrete, structural steel, equipment setting, process piping, electrical, controls, and commissioning of all process systems.


Production at the facility had to be maintained throughout the construction process. IPS closely coordinated work schedules with the plant in order to avoid interference with existing operations.

Project Scope:

Fenner Dunlop is the world’s leader in the field of conveyor belting, manufacturing the most comprehensive range of conveyor systems for many industries and applications.

IPS was contracted to provide setting, aligning, and installation services for five (5) process equipment lines: calendar line; steel cord press line; fabric belt press line; inspection line; and laminating line. Scope of work include process piping, process electrical, and equipment installation.

The preplanning for the equipment moves began while the building was being erected. Provisions had to be made for the process piping runs to be integrated within the building and the process electrical runs that had to be embedded within the concrete. Additionally, alignment plates were strategically placed in order to ensure that each individual process line was precisely installed to meet the required tolerances.

IPS was also responsible for the installation of all electrical work in the new building to support the expansion. Planning and pre-work was completed prior to the substation retrofit, which took place during a 72-hour shutdown over Thanksgiving. IPS worked around-the-clock to ensure the substation was available to the customer a full day earlier than required.
