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.
