Challenge

A fertilizer manufacturing plant in the Czech Republic experienced one-month packing life on their screw conveyor transporting dry granules. The temperature is ambient, pressure is low, the speed is 60 RPM. The customer is using a general service ePTFE interwoven packing, which is resulting in housekeeping issues, maintenance time, and equipment downtime.
