Bruce Oakley, Inc., a highly respected commodity provider, found themselves perplexed after finding that their corn had been contaminated with their soy after a minor chute malfunction. The chute did not close 100% and the results were multiplied by the fact that it was not caught for a few days. With millions of bushels of corn contaminated with the soy, the value of the corn had decreased by millions of dollars.
Scrambling for a solution to separate the two valuable commodities, Bruce Oakley exhausted all their agricultural resources and called GrinderCrusherScreen Inc. to see if they could assist. Within days, Rick Cohen with GrinderCrusherScreen Inc. was in Little Rock, AR analyzing the materials and he determined within 20 minutes that the material could be separated. Bill Thompson, consultant for Bruce Oakley, said that he was skeptical as they had discussed this problem with dozens of companies and none of them had figured out an economical solution. After checking out GrinderCrusherScreen’s reputation, we realized that we were fortunate to be dealing with one of the leaders in the screening industry. GrinderCrusherScreen deals with shakerScreens, trommelscreens, starscreens, and air separation systems and are experts when it comes to combining technologies to fill a customer’s needs.
The screening plant selected for the job was a used Morbark 837 trommelscreen which is one of the largest portable screening plants on the market. GrinderCrusherScreen Inc. modified the machine to meet the jobs needs and installed the proper sized http://grindercrusherscreen.com/. In addition, they sent a couple extra screens that were only 1/32” larger to be installed if needed. Due to time restraints, we were unable to inspect the machine before buying it. When the machine arrived we were pleasantly surprised that the machine was exactly as represented and the machine was in near new shape. The set-up was easy and within a few hours we were running material. Dennis Oakley, president of Bruce Oakley, Inc., was the biggest skeptic. Only once the material was flowing through the screener and the materials were properly screened did he sigh of relief. The size of the material changed periodically and Cohen recommended that they install just one of the extra Screens and that would solved the problem. Within 2 hours the screen was installed and the product was 100% perfect.
According to Bill Thompson and Dennis Oakley, we owe a great deal of gratitude to GrinderCrusherScreen Inc. to come to our rescue. Not only did they visit our site, but they knew exactly what to do. In addition, they will sell the machine once our job is completed and the investment will be minimal, with savings in the millions.
