Process Supply Reduces Lead Time By 18 Weeks
A local food-grade salt manufacturer was having problems with a dryer fan prematurely failing due to metal fatigue. This critical piece of equipment was being used to produce high-pressure air to properly dry the finished product before packaging. This manufacturer was receiving replacement lead times of 24 weeks and sought out Process Supply for assistance.
Process Supply was challenged to custom fabricate and deliver a new unit with a significantly reduced lead time.
Process Supply successfully offered a custom fabricated, 75-horsepower direct replacement unit, upgraded the material to Type 316 stainless steel for use in the corrosive environment and redesigned the new dryer fan with additional support on the suction and discharge flanges. Additionally, Process Supply fabricated a heavier base structure and isolation springs to eliminate problematic vibration. From start to finish, Process Supply provided this manufacturer with a solution in just 6 weeks compared to the 24-week lead times they received from other providers.
