Project Scope:

Tri County Block and Brick is a family-owned business located in Swanton, Ohio, providing quality service to the mason industry since 1953. IPS was called to help troubleshoot production and solve some of their maintenance problems.  IPS was responsible for:

  • Relining (2) Stone Bins with 1/4-inch Corten Plate
  • Replace (2) Dust Collectors on top of two silos over 75’ high.
  • Field fabrication and installation of a new platform
  • Replacement of the existing clutch break system
  • Replacement of conveyor belts, one being over 300-Ft long
  • Replacement of several conveyor rollers on separate conveyor lines
  • Electrical replacement of lights and fixtures, and installation of new conduit lines throughout the plant.

IPS has been able to beat out the local competition by being responsive to their needs/requests and raising their standards of field service. IPS’ experienced Millwrights and Electricians continue to serve Tri- County Block and Brick on an “as-needed” basis and assist with keeping their production running efficiently.

Challenges:

IPS kept their plant fully operational as they replaced equipment and did electrical upgrades. IPS helped Tri- County keep up with their demanding workload by working second shift to allow it possible for Tri-County to keep running during the days and complete crucial maintenance tasks during the evenings through their busy season.

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.
