Celpure Frothing Unit Installation

Imerys Minerals California wanted to install a new flotation (frothing) unit and a supply tank at its Lompoc plant to increase material throughout and streamline production. This required installation of a new platform extending from the dewatering equipment to the existing unit platform, and new piping lines between the unit and the tank.

Cannon was selected to provide engineering and design services for installing the new unit with the supply tank and tie-ins to associated systems. The scope of work included a 3D survey scan and modeling of the site, piping layout, new pipe supports, modification to existing pipe and supports, project management, and preparation of construction drawings.

The project was designed in three stages. The first stage focused on surveying and modeling the existing equipment and piping within the facility. The second stage included design of new process piping, modeling the new piping and tie-in points, and developing piping plans. The final stage focused on preparing construction drawings to design and develop the piping system at the facility.
