Manildra is an international Company that has a worldwide reputation as a leader in providing wheat gluten, wheat proteins and alcohol. Ody Maningot, the new Vice President for R&D and Technical Services, had a problem: He wanted to construct a research and quality control lab at the company’s national headquarters in suburban Kansas City but Manildra was located on the 3rd floor of a multiple story office building. The lab would require a fume hood and waste dilution system yet there was no feasible way to extend exhaust ductwork to the top of the building.
Manildra contacted Hicks-Ashby (now known as H2I Group) for help. The solution was a filtered “Green Solutions Hood” offering the latest generation filtration system and a state of the art monitoring package. The lab with the Green solutions Hood was installed in the summer of 2014. H2I Group also provided a waste neutralization system to adapt to the building’s plumbing system.
