- Location Salinas, CA
- Completion 2019
- Category Project Services
- Service Type Piping design and detailing
- Total Building Area 25,000 sqft
- Operational Benefits Redesigned piping system to utilize gravity flow which eliminated many high horsepower pumps making the overall process more efficient.
Roberts Engineers was designing a multileveled process structure with many pumps pumping material up and over into the various pieces of equipment. At a design review meeting, the owner decided to eliminate most of the pumps and wanted a majority of the piping, both plastic and steel, to be sloped.
Roberts Engineers proceeded to redesign the piping sloping 5 levels of process piping as requested. The buildout was done with almost no questions or problems during the piping installation. The result was a process which allowed gravity to do much of the “pumping” for free.
