Our superior craftsmen take pride in providing showcase installations.



BMI has designed and installed process systems for all phases of wine production, including utility support systems and sanitary transfer systems. Hundreds of our patented, in-house designed heavy-duty racking arms are currently in service throughout the industry.

Distilled Spirits

Distilled Spirits

We work with large and small distillers to design and install innovative distillation production facilities. Our knowledge of Class I - Division 1 & 2 regulations and market specific process methodology makes the emerging craft distillation industry a natural fit for us.

Beverage Process Systems


Barnum Mechanical Inc. (BMI) designs, fabricates, and installs automated beverage process systems that communicate in real time with equipment, instrumentation, and utility support systems to improve yields, efficiencies, quality, and sustainability. Our systems are in use throughout the industry for carbonated beverages, bottled water, juices, tea, coffee, and energy drinks.

Olive Oil Production

Edible Oils

We collaborate with industry leaders to bring leading edge process technology to edible oil production facilities. We are continuing our investment in the industry through our cooperation with the UC Davis Olive Center and Cargill.


Dairy Processing

The dairy industry established the standard of using 304 and 316 stainless steel for sanitary applications. BMI has broad experience in designing and installing process, CIP, and utility support systems for milk, cheese, whey, yogurt, specialty drinks, and ice cream.


Tomato Processing

The seasonal harvesting of processing tomatoes requires primary and secondary tomato process systems to perform at full capacity through a short and demanding production schedule. Off-season modifications, upgrades, and maintenance are performed with the goal of trouble-free and efficient processing. BMI has a proven track record for providing innovative solutions to meet these goals.

Baked Goods

Baked Goods

The baking industry relies on dependable equipment to provide fresh daily production. Modular solutions for ingredient handling, CIP, and process water treatment are just a few of the systems that we can fabricate off-site to reduce the construction footprint and impact on daily operations. We also install and provide automated control integration for modular skidded and traditional process systems.

Confectionary Production


Unlike other process systems, confectionary production requires a unique approach and scope of work. Bulk ingredients, controlled environments, and specialty equipment are common components in sweetened, baked, or frozen confections. Our experienced team will address these challenges and provide reliable systems that produce a consistent product.


Resource Recovery & Reuse

Water and energy are precious resources and a major expense for processors. We team up with equipment manufacturers to treat and reuse water for chilling, steam production and CIP. We install innovative solutions for recovering and reusing energy such as creating biogas for heat production and using waste heat to create steam-generated electricity. These, and other sustainable solutions will positively impact your bottom line.


Emerging Markets

We have designed and installed pioneering processes for plant-based meats, nut-based cheese, energy gels, cannabis products and food and beverage pods. Our experienced team takes on new challenges and succeeds.


Custom Process Solutions

We team up with innovative processors to bring new process technologies to fruition. Trying something that has never been done? We’ll do more than cheer you on. We’ll help design, fabricate and install your first of its kind solution.
