Previous projects include:

Fire Protection Plan and Conversion

Completed an inspection of the existing fire protection system at a paper mill and prepared a report to identify contraventions and propose corrections to ensure the mill was compliant with applicable Ontario Fire Codes. The existing wet fire protection system was ultimately converted to a dry system to remain operational in the event of a fire, as the entire complex was unheated.

Green Screen Discharge Drag Chain Conveyor Design

KEI completed the mechanical and electrical design of two top drag chain conveyors at a pellet plant in Northern Ontario. The two discharge conveyors were installed at a 34° angle and transported wood chips from the green screen overs to an elevated hog conveyor. The design included all structural steel, specifications of conveyor components mechanical drives and safety equipment.

PM5 Curl Control

Completed an inspection to determine the cause of sheet curling within the drying section of a paper mill. Inspection included the use of contact temperature probes, infrared thermometers and steam pressure readings. A detailed report was prepared describing a plan to correct the “cold areas” of the rolls. Kozar Engineering also completed the repiping of the steam distribution to correct the problems.
