CEITM provided engineering services to aid in the development and installation of a major food processor’s pilot plant. This testing facility included a whey dryer, an HTST, NF/RO membrane systems, tanks, pumps, and other peripheral equipment all scaled down to testing batch size. This pilot plant included a full scale CIP skid responsible for cleaning all testing equipment to truly replicate the main processing facility.
This project required a full set of block flow and mass balance drawings, P&ID’s, and equipment layouts. CEI collaborated with the architectural firm to optimize the testing facility building and space/area arrangements to work best for process design. This complex plant required trace circuit drawings for production and CIP circuits due to the highly flexible process design. This project successfully gave our customer a true to scale testing facility where future products will be imagined, created and tested.
