Project overview

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.
