No project is too large or too small, and no application is beyond our capabilities.

Sanitary Systems

Our ability to self-perform sanitary system/tubing installations has always been an integral part of PMI’s business. With ANSI D 18.1 certified welding techniques (Orbital and Manual/Hand), we regularly manufacturer and fabricate a variety of sanitary stainless vessels, skidded systems, containers, Clean-In-Place (CIP) systems, and more for the food/beverage, bio-manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries. Nearly all of our employees on staff are certified per ANSI standards for hand/orbital welding of tubing.

Our experienced team of project managers, welders, supervisors, and pipe fitters works closely with our clients to ensure that exact specifications are met an superior results are delivered.

Millwright/Mechanical/
Maintenance

PMI regularly performs start-up assistance, modifications, preventative maintenance, and more for various types of process equipment in manufacturing plants.

For years, we have strategically hired employees with varied backgrounds in millwright work and general plant maintenance. We regularly draw upon our millwrights’ thorough knowledge of industrial machinery to install, maintain, and repair mechanical equipment such as mixers, agitators, pumps, valves, conveyors, bearings, and more across a range of facilities.

Diverse Millwrights

Our millwrights, or industrial mechanics, are skilled in many areas, including aligning, testing, and adjusting equipment; interpreting complex diagrams and drawings to determine correct work procedures; replacing or repairing defective parts; and more, including general plant maintenance.

At PMI, we care about our employees and the quality of our products. All of our millwrights are highly trained and benefit from the combined decades of experience and knowledge under PMI’s roof.

Process Equipment Installation/Machinery Moving

No project is too big or small for PMI when it comes to process equipment installation. While we deal with small equipment such as pumps and valves every day, we also have the knowledge, experience, and industry relationships to set large equipment.

We have completed projects requiring specialized aerial lifting (i.e., helicopters for rooftop equipment) as well as crane lifts as large as 550 tons. We understand the importance of critical alignment, leveling, operating parameters, and other complex factors that each piece of equipment may require.

Planning For Success

As part of our equipment setting, we provide our clients with comprehensive rigging and lifting plans for any critical lifts and potential plant impacts that may happen. This allows our clients to better plan and also minimize any downtime that may be required. Along with this plan, a complete and thorough safety evaluation is done by a trained safety officer to ensure complete security of the job site.

Utility Piping Systems

Since PMI’s inception, we have had the appropriate certifications and knowledge to install all types of utility piping systems and equipment. This includes boiler equipment, steam, condensate, glycol/chilled water, gas, air, process water, ammonia, and more. Our experienced specialists are equipped to install, maintain, and repair piping systems in jobs of all sizes.

Because we understand the complexity of these systems, we bring a “design/build” approach to our customers that allows them to assist in changes and/or new installations. This enables us to create a properly functioning system and achieve a satisfactory final product. Our trained professionals utilize the latest in technology, equipment, and management techniques to accommodate any piping systems that our customers may require.

No project is too large or too small, and no application is beyond our capabilities.

BLASTING/SURFACE PREP

PMI understands that in the environments where we install equipment and specialty fabricated items, there are essential surface characteristics that must be taken into consideration. There may be sanitary concerns, highly corrosive environments that require high-end applied coatings, or even simply aesthetics.

Surface preparation is an essential first step for any corrosion protection system to perform effectively. To make sure the base is satisfactory, we utilize abrasive blast cleaning—a process that both cleans and creates a surface quality that will properly receive a protective coating. We have the ability to blast on a large scale, utilizing glass bead or sand, producing the appropriate surface finish on any metal component.

Design/Build

As a complement to our fabrication and construction services, PMI has an in-house engineering team capable of generating AutoCAD, Inventor, and Plant 3D drawings for our customers. This allows PMI to provide a turnkey service from “conception” to a “final product.” Using this model, our customers can view, approve, and make changes to their ideas throughout the building process.

PMI is at the forefront of the design/build practice, giving our team the opportunity to:

  • Evaluate the design and ensure that it meets the client’s performance needs;
  • Analyze project costs to confirm they are kept within budget; and
  • Provide high-quality construction and efficiencies throughout the entire project.

With in-house design capabilities and well-established relationships with design firms locally and nationally, PMI can effortlessly take a project from early preplanning/ pre-construction and guide it through design, construction, installation and continued maintenance.
