Scheck Combines Process Piping and HVAC Solution to Case New Holland Test Cell

David Zweizig new Project Manager for Scheck Industries started with the Company in January 2012. David has more than 25 years of related work experience in project management and estimating HVAC solution and process piping. He is a key addition to the Team as Scheck is ramping up growth in its’ HVAC division to service long time heavy industrial clients in the Midwest.


The addition of David brings a new dimension to Scheck’s Project Management Team. Randy Peach explains, “Most companies know either the process piping side or the HVAC side – seldom do you find an organization like Scheck who understands the entire package. Possessing expertise in both businesses is a huge asset as we look to provide a turnkey solution”. In the past Scheck has largely ignored opportunities in industrial HVAC and focused on constructing the process segments of facilities but now the Company can perform both as is the case with manufacturing giant CNH Global. Randy goes on to explain the benefit to the client, “Instead of having multiple contractors come into the facility to build the process side and HVAC side we bring a value add to the client by performing on both segments providing some economies of scale and efficiencies – One Contractor Multiple Solutions.”

CNH-LR-2CNH manufactures, markets, and distributes a line of agricultural and construction equipment and parts worldwide primarily under the Case and New Holland brands. Scheck was awarded the job the build a test cell for in their Burr Ridge Illinois headquarters. Upon completion heavy equipment such as tractors will be tested in the facility in a cell which is a special built garage within the facility. First, on the process side Scheck is constructing a fuel line so equipment doesn’t need to be gassed-up to enter the facility.

The process component Scheck is installing overhead flexible hose that will be hooked to the tractor exhaust system, tied to a 16 inch custom insulated overhead pipe which extends to the roof and finally processed in 4 massive custom built air handling units which are being mounted with structural steel to the roof because they’re so heavy.

The Test Cell needs its own air handling on the HVAC side because of the heat and the excess fumes generated by the engine. The solution comprises the installation of a massive blower intake inside the Test Cell connected by piping to the air handling units on the roof.
