Keystone provided detailed engineering and design to replace existing DowTherm heating equipment for the deodorizer with new high-pressure steam equipment. The new equipment included the installation of a new 2500 KW high-pressure boiler and heater exchanger. Keystone’s scope of work included the evaluation of the process structure and the existing foundation in determining if upgrades are required to handle the new loading. The structural analysis concluded that both the structure and existing foundation are suitable to handle the new equipment with minimal modifications.
Additionally, the project included the design of intercoastal supporting steel for the heat exchanger, design support for pipe components, foundation modification details, ISOs, plan/section drawings, pipe stress analysis, and expansion joint evaluation.
