Ai Process Systems has designed and installed a bespoke water-based manufacturing facility for Farrow and Ball, a provider of traditional decorative papers and paints.

The facility is intended to offer flexibility to allow the optimisation of product formula without the risk of manufacturing process constraint.

Alan Parry, managing director of Ai Process Systems, said: ‘This project provides a new manufacturing facility at the Farrow and Ball Wimborne plant near Poole in Dorset that is fully compliant with the requirements of climate-change legislation to reduce carbon emissions.’ The Ai team designed a manufacturing unit incorporating process flow techniques that meet high standards and specifications.

The primary focus was to allow the extension of the Farrow and Ball range, which includes both traditional and modern products.

The Ai team, led by contracts manager Jason Waldron, was responsible for: the design and installation of a new prime manufacturing system supplemented by product let-down and holding vessels; associated raw materials storage and transfer equipment; finished base storage tanks; a recipe-driven process control system; associated services such as mezzanine floors, pipe work and electrical installation; and a dust extraction system compliant with legislation to control emissions.

Work on the first phase of the project began in July 2007 and was fully completed in March 2009.
