In the early morning of August 2, 2007 an ethanol plant employee was attempting to unload a rail car illed with low grade gasoline used as a denaturant. During the connection process the valve located at the lower portion of the rail car was left open and unable to close the valve; the result was a rapid release of the approximately 29,000 gallons of product onto the ground between two rail spurs. The spill resulted in the largest documented product release in Iowa’s history. Upon being noti ied for request for assistance, Seneca’s Waste Solutions and Environmental Services divisions mobilized a large contingent of personnel, equipment and resources to avert a potential disaster from escalating. During the course of ten (10) days and round the clock activities, a total of approximately 32,000 gallons of contaminated water and product was recovered from a French drain recovery system installed by response crews and a total of 5,000 cubic yards were excavated, loaded and transported off site for proper disposal. Seneca personnel worked closely with regulatory agencies on and off site to complete the project in a safe and timely manner. The response efforts resulted in prevention of offsite migration, adverse environmental impact and without injury to any personnel.

Seneca Industrial assisted this client in designing and building a complete liquid inishing system. The current system they had was out dated with over 20 pressure pots located in the booth area for spraying all types of stains sealers and topcoats. The goal was to make the system user friendly and eliminate excessive waste and stream line the operation. Working with the customer and material supplier Seneca was able to come up with a system to centrally locate materials in either the current paint kitchen or in the booth area to supply several booths without having all the equipment located on the loor and disrupting of production. Seneca integrated bar code scanning for color ABOVE: Pneumatic automated color change system. change at all 3 inish lines and 6 booths as well as automating the lushing procedure to eliminate operator error. The system was designed so when a new color was needed one of three (3) guns in the booth would automatically lush and load the new color and let the operator know of the change. This made color changes close to instant, allowing the line to run faster and more ef icient. With the installation of over 50 pumps and agitators located both in the paint kitchen and booth side the system was made more productive with less color variation and color change waste. A combined total of over 35,000 feet of tubing was used to deliver topcoat, sealer, stain and solvent ABOVE: Color change stack mounted on ceiling. throughout the plant. 52

November 2011 ‐ February 2012

Seneca Industrial assisted this client in designing and building a custom color change system to increase ef iciencies and reduce waste. The current process was to spray 8 to 12 different colors from a gravity or siphon fed spray gun. Several color changes were required per day. The operator would need to thoroughly clean the spray gun during each change. This resulted in signi icant time wasted as well as increased paint and solvent waste. The primary purpose of the new system was to increase production and reduce waste at the same time. Working hand in hand with the customer, Seneca determined that Kremlin’s Airmix® technology was the best spray gun technology for the application. By switching from Airspray to Airmix® the customer would receive 35% increase in transfer ef iciency. In addition to the new spray technology Seneca designed and built a custom automatic color change system to eliminate the current manual process. The system used custom air logic to control a Kremlin air operated color stack. The operator can now simply lip a switch and color changes happen automatically with minimal human interaction. The amount of time spend on color changes was reduced by almost 50%. Seneca installed this system irst in Jeld‐Wen’s Grinnell, Iowa facility. After an extensive testing and proving phase the project was then rolled out to 10 different Jeld‐Wen factories around the country. Each Jeld‐Wen facility has achieved similar reductions in waste and time savings. Spread across the company this has had a signi icant impact on production and cost savings.

Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation required an onsite fuel system to maintain light testing for their new G650 business jet.

On‐site there were three existing tanks, one (1) 30,000 gallon for storage and two (2) 3,000 gallon for defueling aircraft.
