With oil supplies stretched tight worldwide, oil recently topping $60 a barrel and nearly every industrialized nation concerned about global warming, the need for alternative energy sources has never been more critical. Agrilectric, a leading US operator of rice hull combustion power plants, is innovatively attacking the problem of non-renewable energy.
In business since 1984, Agrilectric now transforms the rice hull ash into a valuable product shipped worldwide. The ash is beneficial as a molten steel insulator, a concrete additive, and soil amendment. Its unique characteristics also make an excellent filter aid used in the chemical, wastewater, and swimming pool industries; and numerous US racetracks use ash products as oil absorbents.
For better production efficiency, Agrilectric decided to streamline its business model by bringing a previously outsourced process – screening rice hull ash for foreign material - back in-house.
They searched for a screener that would be durable, reliable and robust, and with contractual services agreements to be met the screeners had to be fully operational in less than one month. However, this was proving difficult to find, with their search finding machines that were too big or the manufacturer could not meet the delivery deadline. However, Russell Finex were able to meet all requirements with a high capacity 1500mm Russell Compact Sieve®. Being half the height of traditional screening machines this vibratory screener increased production capacity, boosted quality control and minimized product handling, lead and delivery times.
Russell Finex has 85 years of experience working in the sieving and filtration industry and applies its wealth of knowledge to a wide variety of industries such as food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, coatings, chemicals and metal powders.
