Case Study #2

Case Study No.: 50100111
Application: Edger Infeed Table
Cost Savings: $7,576

The issue the mill was experiencing is premature corrosion on their 81X conveyor chain installed on the edger infeed table due to conveyance of wet hemlock, which corrodes the chain after 2 months in operation, resulting in significant maintenance and downtime. Tsubaki has been experimenting with a proprietary coating that was applied to the chains to address corrosion issues in wet and/or caustic environments. The test proved to be a major success as life has increased from 58 days to 329 days resulting in cost savings of $7,576.
