Lilly K05 Air Handling

CHALLENGE: Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, Lilly’s cartridge filing plant cannot afford a costly shut down due to bad performance or maintenance inaccessibility of its air handling units. When the plant encountered problems with its existing air handling units due to poor unit design and maintenance, it turned to Air Enterprises to find a solution. The plant required the most efficient and reliable air handling for its pharmaceutical labs.

SOLUTION: Air Enterprises provided an air handling solution to vastly improve air control for Lilly’s pharmaceutical labs. The team sourced large HP motors with sealed bearings that were perfect for Lilly’s air handling system. Lilly also requested that rigorous testing be performed on all nine air handling units to evaluate air flow, vibration, leakage and deflection. Air Enterprises rose to the occasion by executing the tests simultaneously and finishing in one day.

RESULTS: Lilly was extremely pleased with quality of the air handling units, as well as with Air Enterprises’ efficient installation and testing processes. By completing testing in a single day, Air Enterprises saved the client time and money. As one Lilly employee said “[It was] an excellent experience overall.”
