Provided mechanical and electrical engineering for design of a facility for U.S. Durum Products, Inc., a food manufacturing company owned by an international group of investors. The 15,500 square foot facility produces couscous, a Moroccan pasta processed with a special grain know as durum.
This plant is the first of its kind in the United States. It has the capacity to produce 6,000+ tons of couscous annually, more than the entire U.S. consumption of the pasta in a given year.
Our team was responsible for the mechanical and electrical process design. A 300 horse power steam boiler was installed along with the associated boiler feed water and water treatment systems. Also included was a compressed air system, a process chilled water system, and a building make-up air system.
The electrical system includes power distribution to four motor control centers for process equipment, as well as distribution panel boards for local power needs. Power is supplied to all HVAC equipment and convenience receptacles.
