Process Cooling Project
Owner: Producer of Specialty
Pipe Shop Prefab
McKenney’s completed a process cooling project for a metal casting
system at a Georgia aluminum product manufacturing plant.
McKenney’s had extensive expertise in piping systems, however the
coolant water process for the casting die system was unchartered
territory. The original design document provided by the owner left many
questions unanswered. Well into the installation McKenney’s learned the
process cooling design document was not intended to be the final design.
The McKenney’s team enlisted its vast knowledge of piping systems and
construction to determine what was needed for the job. When the
original pumps would not meet system requirements and keep the
casting die cool during start-up, the team jumped in to provide design
assistance for the owner and worked quickly with its pump vendor to
resolve the issue.

McKenney’s insight and tenacity helped the project team master a new
process and overcome many obstacles to ensure the cooling system
