Biodiesel Crush Plant Expansion

Project Summary

Our team provided in-shop fabrication of stainless steel and carbon steel pipe spool and vapor duct for a BQ 9000 biodiesel crush plant expansion. The expansion increased production capacity by 40%.

The plant processes soybean oil into either a biodiesel product or a pharmaceutical-grade glycerin product. The accelerated project required fabrication and installation of 3 miles of carbon steel pipe, 1.5 miles of stainless steel pipe and one-half mile of 2,205 stainless steel pipe over four months.

Since the piping installation was in conjunction with building steel erection, coordination between the engineering field staff and our prefabrication shops was crucial.
