Michigan Food Processing Plant 2009

Fortec Food Processing Plant2009

Location:             Food Processing Plant, MI

Contractor:         Smith Waterproofing, Almont MI

Engineer:            Gateway Engineering & Surveying

Materials Used: 300 gsm Unidirectional Tow Sheet & 4550 Epoxy Resin

Project Scope:   Processing Plant combined high humidity and a very acidic environment.  The corrosive atmosphere deteriorated CMU building, creating loss of compression capacity a loss of tensile capacity.

Solution: Fortress 300 g.s.m. Carbon Fiber Fabric was installed 4ft on center to increase compression capacity.

Conclusions: Fortress Carbon Fiber was designed to tie foundation back together while increasing its compression capacity, and still maintain plant production.
