Egg Roller Redesign
Problem: A large egg producer was looking for a supplier to manufacture replacement egg rollers to be able to withstand harsh chemical sanitation washdown, as well as provide replacement end bushings for ease of maintenance replacement.
Solution: We preformed a chemical analysis test on several elastomer materials to determine which material would perform the best to the high PH sanitation levels the rollers were subjected to. We also re-engineered the end of the rollers from the original OEM’s design so the bushings are easily replaceable by the maintenance personnel in the field. In working in conjunction with our manufacture, we were able to engineer an after-market roller that when running in the field 24/7, greatly reduced the plants total cost of ownership!
