Mechanical & Utility
Chilled Water Systems
We not only design and install chilled water systems, we also conduct cost analysis and feasibility studies for chillers to determine useful application and ROI. In many cases, chilled water systems cost a little more upfront when compared to standard package units, but save owners in the long run through reduced maintenance and longer life. Our experts also have experience in chilled water/glycol systems for use in applications below freezing.
Stellar designs and installs air compressors for a variety of applications — from maintenance to processing to packaging. We carefully consider capacity and use to deliver solutions that make sense for our clients, using food-quality air when the compressors are used at crucial stages of production and packaging.
Domestic Water Systems
Stellar experts design and install domestic water systems using materials and techniques that reduce labor, increase longevity, and improve reliability. We have experience working with a wide variety of piping materials including PVC, CPVC, stainless steel, carbon steel, polypropylene and copper. Our domestic water piping expertise spans across a wide range of applications for hot and cold water, from plumbing to washdown and hydronics.
HVAC Installation & Commissioning
Stellar’s HVAC installation and commissioning experience spans across a variety of applications including food, cold storage and pharmaceutical. Our engineers know how to adhere to all safety codes and requirements to get our clients’ HVAC systems running at the utmost efficiency, including partnering with third-party vendors for LEED commissioning. Our team is experienced in all types of duct work, helping save you money by only using stainless steel in washdown and food-safe areas, while using galvanized steel and other materials in less crucial zones of the facilities.
Process Water Systems
Stellar has expertise designing, building and installing process water systems for various applications including pasteurization and clean steam, for a wide variety of markets including food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, meat, poultry and dairy. We meet or exceed FDA sanitary guidelines regarding process piping for food and pharmaceutical products.
Stellar has expertise building and installing boilers of every size — we’ve completed small, 15-horsepower boilers to those that operate at 1,000 horsepower and beyond. Our steam systems have been used for a variety of applications such as processing, heating and cooking. From steam cooking for coffee grinding to steam injection for the pasteurization of milk products, our steam systems are both food safe and pharmaceutical-grade quality.
