We teamed up with a major producer of sugar cane to reduce equipment maintenance and save them thousands of dollars in lost production time.
During sugar cane harvest, our partner processes and crushes over 7000 tons of raw sugar cane each day. The factory operates in 24/7 mode to make the most of the short season, and any shut down or delay in processing can be devastating to the bottom line. Yet our client complained that the sticky sugar substance was causing the metal bearings to fail, and production rates to plummet.
By replacing high-maintenance metal bearings with zero-maintenance Ultracomp 500 bearings on the line’s hydro-mechanical roll presses; our partner realized a significant savings.
