Case Studies: Featured Production Plants

EPIC Delivers New Food Processing Plant on Short Timeline

Relocating and upgrading to a new commercial plant, EPIC’s clients needed automated batch processing systems and packaging lines for their new facility. The client came to EPIC for turnkey design, fabrication and installation of both the batch blending and automated packaging systems as cohesive commercial plant. EPIC was able to reduce project timeline by three months through off-site modular construction and testing.

Key Features: Batch blending systems, sanitary systems, automated packaging systems.

Fast Plant Upgrade Brings Product to Market First

A new product launch depended on the fast execution of a complete plant upgrade. EPIC teamed with a consumer products company’s R&D department to engineer an efficient project management plan. An innovative modular design met the customer’s ambitious timeline and brought the product to market on schedule in a full-scale modular commercial plant.

KEY FEATURES: Food grade sanitary requirements, compact design, batch manufacturing system.

Next Steps: What Happens After You Contact EPIC

EPIC takes full turnkey responsibility for your production plant, with services from plant design through fabrication and installation handled in-house. After you contact EPIC 314-714-1580, we begin your project by:

  1. Fully mapping your technical and commercial goals for the project, timeline and budget. This helps us to start design, the next step.
  2. Production Plants are designed by our team of process experts, who have many years of experience designing automated systems for manufacturing from many diverse backgrounds. Deliverables such as piping and instrumentation diagrams, general arrangements, process models, mass and material balances, and equipment lists are developed.
  3. Programming and controls for your commercial plant begin in design and continue throughout plant assembly and testing. Automation, including hardware, is handled internally at EPIC by the same project team.
  4. Fabrication and assembly takes place in our production facility, under controlled conditions and out of the way of your on-site work. Our approach reduces traditional downtime through parallel construction, resulting in cost-savings, increased safety and faster project delivery.
  5. Full plant testing is complete on all systems before they ship. You are invited to our facility throughout the process to monitor progress and conduct any tests of your own. Our finished modules must meet our strict QA guidelines and tests before being shipped to your site.
  6. Installation usually takes three days or less once on-site, with minimal interruption to your existing operations. We provide full training and support during this process, and complete punch-list resolution.
