Approximate Value $225,000 – Design & Build Equipment and Piping Retrofit for Houston Area Plant – The customer requested a custom refrigeration package to be placed in a highly corrosive environment. All the piping and control valves had to be replaced. Service Refrigeration Company could not use torches or welders in the vessel area. We had seven days to demo the piping, valves, and existing refrigeration skid and construct and install the new skid along with pressure testing, evacuation and start-up of the new unit.
We designed and built a galvanized refrigeration skid complete with copper finned condensers. We utilized a Bitzer reciprocating compressor and designed a suction vessel with boil out coil and high-level control. We additionally designed and built the control panels. Due to the tight schedule, all the piping was built in our shop with flanges and then transported to the job site and bolted together. The system was online in 6 days.
