Having a master plan for the expansion of your facility is important as it allows you to avoid pitfalls that cost time and money. A crucial piece of any facility is the process and utility water distribution. Without a properly designed system your production can come to an abrupt halt as peak demands exceed capacity. Planning your plant expansion properly can insure your capacity increases with your demands and facility changes.
With your plant continuing to innovate with new production lines, product recipes, and changing regulations it’s common for a facility to have ongoing improvements to accommodate these changing requirements. Many times these changes are small, and make use of existing systems. If the plant capacity is not audited and taken into consideration for these expansion projects, it’s common to run into problems with capacity.
