Air gravity conveying to efficiency
A wallboard manufacturer installs air gravity conveyors to minimize power consumption and maintenance.
Temple-Inland Forest Products Corp., located in Diboll, Tex., began gypsum wallboard production in 1964. During the past 37 years, the company has expanded to add a total of four plants to the company. In 1999 Temple completed Standard Gypsum, a joint venture in Cumberland City, Tenn., strategically built adjacent to the Tennessee Valley Authority power plant. Standard Gypsum makes use of the synthetic gypsum, used to make gypsum wallboard, produced from the power plant's flue gas desulphurization by-product. Temple receives 66 percent of all company gypsum raw material requirements from this environmentally friendly source.
