Cargill Deicing Solves Salty Problems with Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys
Cargill Deicing has begun converting their exposed conveyor drive systems to internally-powered Rulmeca Motorized Pulleys after a successful trial in 2004 by Everett McBride. The company's Avery Island facility has battled the effects of abrasion and corrosion since the mine shaft was sunk into the huge salt dome in 1862. Standardizing on models 500M & 630H, Cargill is limiting the number of spares protecting their system. For details and photgraphs, including special Carboline paint system used, go to "Cargill Project".
