With a staff of civil, environmental, and chemical engineers, the suite of JKMuir’s services includes tailored design phase assistance.
Whether it’s a large facility upgrade, specific system improvement, or a new construction project, JKMuir provides experienced engineering support. This includes facility plan level assistance, evaluation of technology options, life cycle costs, and preliminary equipment sizing and selection. Our goal is to work as an extension of the owner’s or engineer’s team to provide value add skills and expertise and to influence the implementation of equipment and system upgrades that will provide energy, maintenance, and reliability benefits. The JKMuir team provides engineering and design services including specification development, pump system design, equipment selection, and project implementation of sustainability, facility upgrade/retrofit, and renewable energy projects.
Our experience in design and implementation includes solids handling systems, clarification systems, anaerobic digestion and cogeneration, mixing and conveyance equipment, and chemical addition systems.
The design of a pumping system, including pump selection, will affect the operation of the system and the overall process throughout its lifetime. JKMuir has experience assisting with the design of pumping systems through upgrades of existing systems as well as new construction projects. Through our experience in pump system assessments, the JKMuir team knows firsthand that the design parameters of pump selection and the development of piping, control, and intake design will dictate the future reliability, performance, and maintenance requirements. Our field measurements of existing system conditions using portable instrumentation and data loggers can provide valuable insight into the required design and peak conditions.
Through both our pump optimization studies and commissioning experience JKMuir has field-based knowledge of the equipment sizing and critical design criteria required for effective specifications for pumping and process systems. Efficient system design and equipment selection is a keynote of JKMuir’s focus on reducing the lifetime operational and maintenance costs of pumping and process systems.
