Overcoming Utility Systems and Limitation Challenges

At Placer Process we often assist our clients in troubleshooting issues with their utility systems. As our clients in the food, beverage, winery, brewery, dairy, and alternative foods manufacturing industries businesses grow, so too do the demands on their facilities and production process systems. If the systems that support the manufacturing process equipment cannot keep up with the increased demand manufacturers can experience a limitation, causing delays, reduced capacity, and other potential issues. Having a robust utility system in place can alleviate these issues and keep your facility operating smoothly.

What is a Utility System?

A Utility System provides one or more commodities required during the manufacturing process or by the process system. Examples include hot water, tempered water, process water, steam, condensate, compressed air, nitrogen, glycol, or other ingredients required for specific process equipment. We frequently see that utility systems were designed during the original build of the facility, and the ability to scale up or increase production was not considered during this phase. These systems then need to be evaluated refitted and upgraded as new production demands, machinery, and process systems are added to the existing plant.
