SSOE Group

Project Profile: Production Line Design

Line-Design
Value Promise: Specifying more economical equipment options saved the client nearly $950,000.

SSOE worked with this long-term client to add a third production line to deliver needed additional capacity of unbonded loose fill fiberglass used for blow-in insulation. Having installed the existing two lines, our team was thoroughly familiar with the process and facility, enabling the firm to utilize an efficient design/build approach and work within tight budget limitations. The addition of the third line significantly increased the facility’s throughput.

SSOE provided controls, electrical, process, and structural engineering services. The design included modification of the existing batch system, installation of a new glass furnace, forming system, and bagger; and addition of a storage area. Variable speed drives and efficient cooling towers resulted in significant energy savings for the facility.
