JR Simplot Potato Storage
– Portland, Oregon –
Potato Storage — Big At Simplot
J.R. Simplot in Caldwell is updated their -10° F. freezer storage from high piled to rack, with phase 1 of 4 now complete. In their quest to maximize storage space, Simplot left us with mere inches to use for our in rack sprinkler branch lines and mains. We decided to use welded fittings for all branch lines to minimize the risk of moving pallets snagging the pipe. Portland’s fabrication shop completed approximately 1,400 welds for phase 1 alone. Roy and Cesar did a great job with the installation inside the -10° F. freezer. It was an all-around great teamwork effort that led to a very successful in-rack sprinkler project.
