Most of us understand that many aspects of society still rely on oil and natural gas, but you may not realize the process of transporting them into and throughout a large facility. From chemical plants to food processing plants, most industrial facilities require professional process piping systems. These systems are used to transport materials, such as liquid and gas, however some systems are equipped to transport slurry and powders. Process piping is the safest way to transport these fluids and gases across manufacturing facilities.

The testing, adjusting and balancing (TAB) of a building’s HVAC system is one of the more critical phases when preparing the system for operation. This process involves various testing, adjusting, and balancing procedures to ensure all HVAC equipment and systems are operating correctly. With each of our building projects, our goal is to provide our customers with quality solutions to their TAB needs for their HVAC systems. Our process includes balancing air and water flow through the system, performance testing for all mechanical parts, and making adjustments to the system to verify all automatic controls function as required.

In fact, the majority of the energy used by building structures comes from electricity usage, which greatly increases the facility’s carbon footprint. So what steps can be taken to combat this issue?
