At ICM, Inc., we work to understand our customers’ needs, then make it our mission to deliver guaranteed solutions to meet them. That’s why we offer turnkey solutions based on a full-service, best-value engineering approach, whether you’re building a new facility or expanding an existing plant.
Our licensed, professional engineers design customized solutions to meet our customers’ unique requirements then see them through fabrication, installation, construction, training, startup, and testing.
We have extensive experience operating ethanol plants, including process design, operations management, and environmental compliance. We even offer a comprehensive menu of professional engineering services designed to take our customer from initial concept studies and design through operational training and startup.
In addition to the high level of experience, service, and dedication our team offers, ICM-designed plants have several advantages:
ICM-designed plants use the absolute minimum amount of piping necessary, reducing the risk of bacterial contamination, making pipes easier to access, and lowering costs.
Because ICM design takes advantage of batch processing, as opposed to continual processing, plant operators can clean pipes and tanks after each batch has been processed. As a result, the risk of bacterial contamination is reduced, and beer columns require less cleaning.
Unique Evaporation/Distillation Process
ICM’s proprietary evaporation/distillation process results in a 10% energy reduction, because heat is shared between the units, as well as reduced downtime compared to other process technologies. Our guarantee is based on 353 days per year of operation.
Operationally Friendly Design
Nothing is more frustrating than high-tech equipment that’s impossible to operate. ICM took this into consideration when designing our easy-to-use DCS systems and control panels.
Along with unparalleled service during plant design and construction phases, ICM is committed to keeping its plants up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We even offer a Plant Support 24-Hour HOTLINE (888.456.8588).
