Airstream

A $50,000,000 Greenfield expansion project to create a new 757,750 SF travel trailer production facility at Airstream in Jackson Center, Ohio. Through the expansion project, Airstream consolidated multiple production spaces into a single facility. This promotes efficiency and productivity within the manufacturing process and, as a result, enables Airstream to increase its productions and broaden its product offerings.  A state-of-the-art training center in the new factory provides Airstream and dealer associates with a hands-on shop floor environment for earning certifications, learning new skills, and mastering new production.  PEDCO provided the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, Construction Administration services and Commissioning for the expansion. On-site field investigation of the current MEP systems of the existing facility was necessary to gain an understanding of process, systems, equipment requirements etc.

Quaker Chemical Reactor Installation

PEDCO provided full engineering design & construction administration services for a 2,000 Gallon Reactor System at Quaker Chemical’s facility in Dayton, Ohio. The new installation quadrupled the existing reactor production rate.

PEDCO provided multiple services for the project including:

The project included Civil/Structural services, including framing all support for the new reactor and platform and the design of secondary containment pit and concrete pavement. Process engineering services of redesigning the reactor heating/cooling system, designing new hot oils system, propylene glycol chiller, process pumps, condenser, product filter, and dedicated control panel design. Additionally, PEDCO facilitated the repurposing an existing vessel for distillate receiver, modifications to existing process, and connections to existing utilities.

From an Electrical Engineering standpoint, PEDCO provided a new service entrance, upgraded electrical equipment, and installed explosion proof electrical for portions of the bay. Additionally, PEDCO reviewed the existing reactor operating system and made improvements to eliminate waste and save costs for the client.

LETCO Building Renovation

PEDCO renovated an existing pharmaceutical distribution center which included designing a new facility layout. A new air-handler was provided for the new Clean Rooms to allow continued use of the existing Clean Rooms during construction. The HVAC system for the Clean Rooms was designed for ISO 8 with 25 air changes per hour (ACH) in the Repackaging and Sampling Rooms and 12 ACH in the vestibules. All Repackaging Rooms have exhaust to control powder dispersal; however, the Liquid Room, Potent Powder Room, and Sampling Room has 100% exhaust.

The vestibule was pressurized +0.05 inches water gage above the adjacent Warehouse and Repackaging Room to prevent flow from the Repackaging Room to the Warehouse. A new 1 MW Diesel Generator was provided to accommodate the additional HVAC loads. A new main switchboard, transfer switch, motor control center (MCC) and (2) distribution panels (480/277V) were set in the Electrical Room. The MCC serves all of the new HVAC loads and the distribution panels shall serve the (3) lighting and receptacle panels (208/120V).

SIZE:

1,000 Gallon Rectangular CIP Drain Tank

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.
