Value Delivered

At the completion of the project, all ammonia was removed from within the main building and the facility charge was reduced from 6,500 lbs. to 4,000 lbs.

Client Objectives

With the objective of converting their existing facility from direct ammonia cooling to a distributed glycol system, Pepsi Bottling Group selected Shambaugh & Son as a single-source, turnkey partner for their project.

Scope of Services

The plant conversion consisted of assembling a stand-alone engine room outside of the main building including a new electrical service to allow for a seamless conversion of two filling lines during three weekend shutdowns. Shambaugh was responsible for the on-site construction management, architectural, civil, structural, process, MEP, refrigeration, and automation disciplines. Highlights include:

  • 900-ton ammonia engine room.
  • Relocation of existing assets from Collierville, TN.
  • Installation of distributed glycol piping through the facility without affecting plant production.
  • Demolition and removal of all existing ammonia piping and equipment from within the facility.
