Corn Syrup Demineralizer

Project Summary

This project modified an existing building to accommodate demineralizer vessels that were relocated from another facility. The design included multiple elements;

  • Building Modifications, which included foundations for the vessels and structural modifications to make the building suitable for the vessels and piping.
  • Process Design, this included pipe size optimization, pump sizing and specification, instrument specification and materials of construction.
  • Detailed Piping Design provided an ergonomic piping layout for the new piping that allowed access to all frequently used valves and instruments.
  • P&ID development for the new process and updating the existing P&IDs.

The project also required Code Review, calculations, and bureaucratic paperwork filing to obtain the necessary certification to bring the vessels into the State of Ohio as pressure vessels.
