It's not just talk. The skid systems we design and build for our customers are not only highly reliable, they deliver performance that exceeds expectations.
Read on to see how we've helped other businesses like yours.
Challenge: Reduce dangerous bacteria and microorganisms without the use of chemicals in this natural environment.
Solution: Use weighted curtains to partition off the area around the beach, then, using a filtration system (housed in a trailer on shore), draw water in from the bay, filter it, disinfect it by way of UV light, then discharge back into the bay.
Result: In previous years, Bernie's Beach closed multiple times during the summer. After the implementation of the system, the beach did not close once.
Turbidity before implementation: 10 NTU
Turbidity after implementation: 2 NTU
*Drinking water specifications tolerate 5 NTU
Challenge: Reclaim traditionally wasted product (butter) left over in transfer lines, line casualties, metal detector checks, and damaged wrapped butter.
Solution: Design, manufacture, and install a butter reclaim system that recovers product in two ways: CIP rinse of butter equipment; rework butter for oil recovery.
Result: The implementation of the system yielded dramatic results.
First rinse of butter equipment savings: $182,885/year
Rework for oil recovery: $540,450/year
Total yearly savings: $723,335/year
System + Installation Cost: 6 Month Payback
Challenge: Develop a nozzle to inject chemical and water into tank that will reduce water and electrical usage.
Solution: Designed a nozzle that fit competitor's pipe connections as well as meet performance expectations.
Result: Manufacturer is able to tout significant water and energy savings by using their chemicals and equipment.
Water Savings: $31,285/year
Pumping Energy Reduction: $1,669/year
Warm-up Cost Savings: $386,281/year
Chemical Savings: $50,000/year
Total Yearly Savings: $469,235/year
Challenge: Incomplete and inconsistent mixing batch process of 2-part glue (resin and catalyst) creates hot spots, resulting in product inconsistency and quality issues. Operator safety also in question due to manual handling of acid.
Solution: Design continuous, on-demand blending system that would reduce product waste, clean up, and variations in quality.
Catalyst would be injected at the tips of the agitator blades in the proper ration using a metering pump. Catalyst pump to ramp up and down based on the flow rate of the resin.
Result: The manufacturer significantly decreased product variations and "out of spec" product, increased efficiency, and experienced easier clean up. Operator no longer responsible for handling acids, eliminating potential for accidents.
