How Chesterton DualPac® Technology Helped a Sugar Mill Extend Packing Life


Chesterton products – Chesterton DualPac® Packing Technology


A customer in a sugar mill was experiencing incredibly low life-cycles on their original packing material, resulting in extrusion. Chesterton recommended DualPac® 2212 and the five rings were installed. Just within 25 days, the customer was already experiencing less issues and concerns with the packing and were saving costs due to less replacement material and downtime.
