To fully understand the benefits of stainless steel, it’s important to understand the properties of stainless steel that make it such an ideal material for use in fabrication and manufacturing. 1. Corrosion Resistance One of the best and most well-known characteristics of stainless steel is that it is extremely corrosion-resistant. When it was first created […]
UPDATED GUIDANCE FOR DSP PRODUCTION OF HAND SANITIZER AND SANITARY SPRAY: FDA & INSURANCE UPDATES March 20th, 2020 The COVID-19 pandemic continues to rapidly evolve. ACSA leadership has been working this week with multiple Federal government agencies to ensure we have the most up-to-date guidance on the production of hand sanitizer. Today, the […]
Growth and economic opportunity for the community and beyond – those were ICC, Inc’s goals when it took over operation of a struggling stainless steel manufacturing company in Canby, OR in 2018. In the last months of 2019, ICC has been recognized by the City of Canby, Clackamas County, and Governor Kate Brown with […]
There’s a reason manufacturers call ICC Group when they have what seems like an impossible task or timeline: ICC is really serious when they say “we make the impossible possible.” A major agricultural processor in central Washington was a case in point, asking ICC’s Parts and Field Services certified contractors to complete phase 1 of […]
The college experience usually involves some amount of beer, cider, and other spirits. But it’s not generally part of the curriculum. In 2018, South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) introduced a new Craft Brewing and Distilling Program to prepare students to open their own craft brewing operations or support existing businesses with their knowledge and […]
“I have yet to find a situation where a pharmaceutical client said they’d sacrifice a little quality if I can make it cheaper.” ICC Inc. Senior Process Engineer Eric Raibley is a problem solver among problem solvers, but he is the first to tell you that quality is non-negotiable in the design engineering of a […]
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then 3D laser scanning and modeling are worth at least a thousand measurements. That’s because 3D laser scanning creates a precise, real-space image by combining digitally mapped “point clouds” and photos of an area like a production line, tank house, or wastewater treatment system. And then with 3D […]
When the difference between a gold-medal IPA and something that sits on the shelf is one degree, one measly little degree of change in temperature, you can see why brew-specific design engineering is mission critical.
Most wineries in the United States, even the oldest labels, don’t have the luxury of leaving the chemical alchemy of producing wine to the harmony created by hundreds, even thousands of years of legacy production.
Surge in craft brewing and distilling is driving growth in beverage manufacturing. A skilled engineering and production design partner holds the keys to cost-savings, efficiency, and sustainability in facility design and operation.
Vessels designed for sanitary service are almost always cleaned in place and/or sterilized in place by a combination of heat, and the circulation of chemicals over all of the surfaces to be cleaned. Crevices, pockets, threads, and non-draining surfaces must be avoided. There are numerous types of sprayballs and spray heads designed for the cleaning of
Mixers are commonly used in sanitary vessels to aid in heat transfer, mix ingredients, or alter the product in other ways, such as gas dispersion or emulsification. Agitation is a separate discussion, however the geometry of a tank designed for mixing is important
