Glycol systems are some of the most used industrial structures in a variety of buildings – whether it’s for a residential area or for commercial or industrial companies. Most of the time, Glycol systems are used in the food and beverage industries, especially the larger companies.
At New York Engineers, we have a team of professional and knowledgeable MEP designers who know how to create a detailed design for your Glycol system. We know that installing one is a complicated process, so we’d love to assist you all the way with our MEP designs. Here, we’re going to use the latest technology, so you’re sure that you’re only going to get a reliable design to help you with your construction process. With our MEP design to back you up, we’re sure that everything would work simpler and faster – something we all love to achieve during the construction process.
Glycol System Explained
For those who are planning to install one, it’s important to note the basics of Glycol systems so that you can identify what kind of design you’d like us to make for you.
To give you a general background of what Glycol systems are, here what you need to know:
What is a Glycol System?
A Glycol system is created with the use of a Glycol chiller – a type of industrial refrigerator where it uses an antifreeze substance called glycol. It’s mixed with water so that the freezing point is lowered, thus maintaining the temperature consistently. In some cases, some also use a different type of glycol that helps stop bacterial growth and corrosion from happening.
The two types of glycol are ethylene glycol and propylene glycol and both shouldn’t mix together. Both have the same primary usage – to guard the glycol system against bacterial overgrowth and corrosion and retain the temperature inside.
- Ethylene Glycol
If you want an economical choice, then this type of glycol should be your pick. It’s toxic and has a sweet taste to it, so it shouldn’t be placed in food processing chillers.
- Propylene Glycol
This is a safer alternative as it has a lower toxicity level. So, it’s a great choice for the food industry. However, propylene is more viscous than ethylene, so it’s likely to affect the temperature in your chiller but only slightly.
Regardless of your pick, we at New York Engineers will be able to provide you with any types of glycol system designs.
Our Glycol System 3D MEP Design Service
At New York Engineers, we have some of the greatest designers not only in the Chicago area but in other parts of the world as well, so you can definitely rely on us for your ongoing and future projects.
At New York Engineers, we don’t only use the usual AutoCAD software to create 2D and 3D representations of your glycol system but also use a multidisciplinary BIM software to ensure that we’re producing not only quality designs but also highly accurate ones.
Whether you need 2D or 3D models, we can create them for you. We can plan, design, and analyze the strength of the system at the design stage. We also accommodate various formats. We help you reduce operational costs and save time and effort in manually doing the design. Our blueprints are what you need for a thorough glycol system plan. Our design capabilities enable you to receive better designs delivered the soonest possible time. No matter the size of your project, we can be of help. Our trusty design tools like AutoCAD and Revit enable us to easily create blocks, snap objects, and cover parametrics as well. We synchronize the data we come up with to the cloud, so everyone can view and edit files and do collaborations in real time. With New York Engineers, you can reduce rework, boost productivity, enhance collaboration, and more. Our simple and powerful design tools make setting up your Glycol System Design ultimately fast and easy. Our design engineers are experienced in maximizing the power of these tools and using their advanced features to lay out the design process seamlessly.
How It Works
Acquiring a glycol system at New York Engineers is simple and fast. We follow a straightforward process to make our clients’ experience easy and on point. If you’re interested to have us as your primary designer, here’s our standard protocol:
Step 1: Contact us to start with the initial planning.
NYE’s design process starts with the initial planning. We’re keen on listening to every detail that you have so that we can create an accurate design of your project. During this process, we’ll start discussing the entirety of the project. Here, the budget, materials, and other important information are shared. Collaboration is key when aiming for a successful design stage.
Step 2: Wait for the site inspection.
At this point, we’re going to send over a principal to take note of all the additional information. This means that we’re going to check out the area and ask for certain measurements from your side. Gathering important details is always a key part of the process.
Step 3: We start the design process.
Once we’ve gathered all of the needed details, we can now start with the designing process. We use the latest technology and software that’s best suited for this particular project. Our experienced design team will take care of helping you dynamically visualize your future glycol system.
Step 4: Further Collaboration
After creating the design, we’ll send over the design to you. First, we’ll ask if you’re satisfied with the output. If you need some changes done, we can make certain adjustments to the design.
Step 5: We send the final design
Once everything is fixed, we’ll send over the final design with the final cost. As we want every business to have a quick and smooth construction process, we make sure to send it on or before the deadline.
With the help of our glycol water system design to back you up during construction, you’re surely going to have a smooth-sailing installation process. A working glycol system in your building means that all of your chillers are working optimally.
