KAO USA Cincinnati Facility
PEDCO provided full engineering design & construction management services for a CIP/SIP Drain Tank System at KAO USA’s facility in Cincinnati, Ohio to eliminate two interior drain tanks, resulting in a more efficient and safer operation. The SIP process was directing steam to the two existing tanks and subsequently into the CIP Room, rendering the room full of steam resulting in a difficult and unsafe environment to work.
Scope of work included:
- Process – Design of new CIP Drain Tank with auxiliary equipment, valving, instrumentation and controls, tank heating system for prevention of wastewater/lotion solidification during freezing weather, and hydraulic
calculations for utilizing refurbished pumps for directing CIP wash water from the new tank to the plant’s waste water recovery system.
- Piping – Design of new large size headers for inside drain piping from process tanks to outside main drain header to new drain tank, with tie-in from tank pump to existing plant wastewater treatment system.
