Increase profitability by optimising productivity and reducing waste.

No matter what type of operation you manage, your primary goal is profitability. You have to keep your plant running efficiently, keep waste to a minimum, reduce energy costs, contain material, prevent dust and more. As a plant manager, you are held accountable for moving as much product through the process as you can – as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible – while managing your costs.

In most industrial operations, there is a wide range of problems that can eat away at profits. Whether it's the premature failure of a belt, motor or other equipment due to dust or material spillage, or the erosion of productivity due to plugged chutes, spillage or carryback, the result is decreased profits.

Unsafe conditions are another drag on profits. Lost-time injuries (LTI), regulatory agency fines, insurance costs and potential legal liabilities are to be avoided.

If you're experiencing unscheduled downtime or a need to lower your energy or housekeeping costs, talk to one of our experts. We're standing by ready to listen to you as you describe your operation and then offer recommendations on how you can boost your bottom line. Our team is available to provide expert advice and assistance on all of your bulk material handling questions and problems.

The carryback was reducing efficiency and profitability and increasing maintenance and cleanup expenses. Unsafe working conditions were a concern due to material accumulation on floors and walkways, creating slip/trip hazards along with fire hazards.

Any material that spills off the conveyor is a loss - loss in material, profit and efficiency. The spillage also creates the need for manual cleanup which takes man-hours and is a dangerous task - putting workers in harm's way.
