Engineering project: Modifying a foundry's material handling system to recycle 350 tons of sand and dust per day
If you're planning to hire an engineering firm to help modify your plant or build an addition, you can take several steps to ensure the project goes smoothly. The first three sections in this article describe how to work with an engineering firm. The final section is a case study that shows how a foundry worked with one such firm to solve a large-scale handling problem.
Engineering firms can provide any or all of these services: designing and engineering a whole plant or a handling or processing system, selecting and testing equipment, constructing a plant or addition and installing equipment, and supervising startup. If your plant is faced with upgrading a handling or processing operation, an engineering firm's resources and expertise can be important to your project's success.
