TILT-UP SSRMEMPHIS,SEISMICWAREHOUSERETROFITTNperformedaseismicassessment and retrofit design for a longtime client who runs a food grade manufacturing and warehousing business. They were operating in three tiltup style buildings, totaling nearly 300,000 SF dating back to the 1960s. The goal of the project was to add seismic resistance to the buildings so that they can essentially remain in operation during the 500-year design earthquake.
NEWLY WED FOODS R&D LAB RENOVATION
HORN LAKE, MS SSR provided engineering design services for the renovation of Newly Wed Foods’ existing 5,000 SF research and development lab. The project also included the design of a new 1,200 SF sample lab which was constructed in an existing dry storage warehouse.
MEMPHIS, TN SSR is providing engineering services for Cargill’s food manufacturing plant in Memphis, Tennessee. Part of the engineering includes placing 600 yards of concrete in a 37’ deep hole, then placing two 20,000 gallon tanks (weighing 38,000 pounds) in the hole. A 250-ton crane placed the tanks.
EDIBLE FILTRATIONOIL SYSTEM
The bleaching process is the first of several oil refining steps that cooking oils go through prior to landing on grocery store shelves. After the bleaching process, oils are then deodorized, sterilized, and packaged for shipping. An analysis of this confidential client’s situation revealed that the bleaching and filtration system had not been updated since 1976 and the low throughput rate was bottlenecking the remaining refinery steps. The project included the design of a new production building to house the new bleaching, filtration, and processing equipment.
pharmaceuticalSSRMEMPHIS,COOLGLAXOSMITHKLINEORANGETNprovidedengineeringforanewproductforGSK.The new process was installed in an existing area of the plant. Part of that engineering included a new rooftop air handling unit to maintain specific room temperatures (70° ±2°) and humidity levels (35% RH or less) design setpoints. The overall design met with the energy efficiency criteria requirements of GSK. Control algorithms, sequence of control, and P&ID’s were incorporated into the design of the project to establish the efficient and effective operation of the equipment and overall HVAC system.
The project consisted of the expansion of a manufacturing complex located in Minas Gerais, Brazil. The project encompassed the conversion of 100,000 SF of warehouse space to manufacturing bays; the construction of 200,000 SF mixeduse space to serve raw material handling, manufacturing, and finish product warehousing with 10 truck loading docks; new 10,000 SF office building; coordination of process equipment installation; new utilities; and site development including 35,000 cubic yards of grading, stormwater management system, internal roads, truck scales and parking, site lighting, security, and landscaping.
FIRE ROASTED PRODUCT LINE
Conagra Brands, Inc. is one of the top 50 largest food and beverage companies in the world, with many category leading brands including Rotel®, Ranch Style Beans®, Roseretta Refried Beans®, and Hunt’s Tomato Paste and Ketsup®.
SSR utilized 3-D scanning of the existing plant as well as 3-D modeling of equipment to fit the new line into the existing plant while minimizing interferences. The 3-D models were also used for design reviews to gain and maintain team alignment throughout the project design and construction phases.
SSR was asked to design a new processing line for an existing manufacturing facility in Oakdale, CA. The new line added upstream processing equipment to create the production capability for a new fire-roasted tomato product portfolio, while utilizing existing downstream canning and packaging equipment. The fire-roasted tomato line utilized new transport flumes, sizers, color sorters, and sanitary belt conveyors on elevated platforms to maintain product segregation and prevent cross-contamination while integrating with six filling lines.
