Project Scope:

IPS was contracted to install the Curing Department’s process piping for a new expansion located at the Titan Tire Corporation of Bryan in Bryan, Ohio. Titan Tire makes off- road tires for heavy equipment.

This project is to support a New Curing Line, which will produce the largest tire made in the world. The tire is 13′ 2″ in diameter, weighing approximately 13,000 pounds. The line produces approximately 20 tires a day when the project is complete. The life span for one of these tires is eight months.

Challenges:

One of the challenges on this project was the additional engineering changes for the processes that had to be added to the project without extending the original contract schedule. IPS completed the project with all of the changes within a 13-month timeframe.  Another challenge on this project involved performing construction while the plant was still in operation. With close coordination of IPS supervision, Titan Tire employees, and six other contractors, this was achieved with no significant delay to either the construction schedule or the Titian Tire production schedule.

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.
