Chesterton DualPac® 2211 Packing Technology Reduces Downtime in Fertiliser Plant
Chesterton products – Chesterton DualPac® Packing Technology
A fertiliser manufacturing plant was experiencing a short one-month packing life on their conveyor, as their original packing was a general service packing. Looking to decrease maintenance time and downtime, they tried Chesterton DualPac® 2211 Packing and were far more satisfied with the results!
Products featured in this case study:
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.
The plant switched to 16 mm DualPac® 2211 packing. Avoiding the hassle of continuous repair, stopping product losses and protecting the environment were much more important in this case than the generated financial savings.
Total Net Savings: $518 US/year ($700 AUD) per application.
