Keen completed a design-build project to improve a starch processing and packaging line inside an operating food facility. Our engineering team designed improvements to product flow including pneumatic piping, blower and cyclone changes, processing and sifting equipment removal and replacement, and tie-in to packaging line. This work required significant coordination with plant operations to conduct a limited line shutdown and complete machine replacement with our millwrights in a food-safe environment. Keen modified the structure with floor openings, adding process equipment and personnel access platforms. Working inside an operating facility required extensive permitting for hot work and other activities, ventilation, and enclosures to contain dust and construction debris.
