The Orlando–based company provides disposable plastic bags primarily for the health care industry. Streamline Solutions was expanding its business to include plastic recycling.
- Design all electrical and control systems to support the owner’s recently refurbished recycling equipment
- Design control systems for the multiple components of the recycling equipment
- Lead the owner in the development and documentation of new operation schematics and sequence of operations
- Coordinate and work with UL (Underwriters Laboratories) to achieve the appropriate UL Listings on the control systems for the equipment
- Old recycling machine — up to four decades in some sections
- No schematics to use as a guide
- For many parts, the manufacturers were no longer in business
- Some parts only available overseas
- Bring the previous electrical work that had been installed up to minimum code standards
- Rely on professional experience and Service Complete’s in–house engineers
- Improvise when needed
- Redo work previously performed on the recycler by another company
Did You Know?
- Five large control relay cabinets had to be built without accurate wiring information.
- 3,000 feet of control wire was installed.
- To identify the components needed to make the system operational, our team had to turn to the Internet and interview different manufacturers.
- Even though the odds were against success, all the equipment tested without any faults.
Despite the challenges of working on an old machine without any manuals to serve as a guide, the Service Complete Electric team got the recycler up and running. Streamline Solutions co–owner Dave Arkeilpane said the work done by the first company “was a mess. I wish I had known about Service Complete Electric in the beginning. They did a great job. They not only took the time to explain very well what needed to be done, but they did exactly what they said they would do. They were phenomenal.”
