Barnum Mechanical Inc. is a design build company which specializes in food and beverage processing. As a design build company we provide process/ control/electrical engineering , shop fabrication, field installation, and construction management services. We work closely with owners and selected equipment manufacturers to optimize equipment selections and configurations which will support all aspects of oil production from bulk unloading through milling and storage to filling. We begin with an evaluation of present and future production goals to determine methods for processing, equipment capacities, building layout, and traffic flow requirements.

The olive oil process design covers all requirements and means for bulk unloading, washing, milling, pomace/black water handling, sludge removal, nitrogen sparging and capping, storage, blending, filling, packaging, and sanitation (CIP). We develop utility support system designs as required for power supply, water filtration/treatment, boilers, bulk nitrogen, compressed air, CIP chemicals, waste removal, etc. Our process mechanical and control system designs can be configured to be semi manual or fully automated as requested by owner to minimize product losses, provide 24/7 monitoring, and documentation for all oil handling, utility, and sanitation operations.
