Conveying and packaging equipment effectively handles PVC resin powder
A complete supply chain management company installs two new conveying and packaging lines to package a resin powder.
Frontier Logistics, La Porte, Tex., is a complete supply chain management company that provides packaging, warehousing, trucking, and other services for companies that use such products as plastics, fractionation sand, guar beans, and other raw materials and general commercial goods. Polyvinylchloride (PVC) resin is one material the company receives in bulk railcars and then packages in 55-pound bags for customers. In summer 2010, with the PVC resin market favoring powder over pellets, the company decided to install two new resin powder conveying and packaging lines in an existing building furnished with two side-by-side silos. To accomplish this, Glenn Wiseman, Frontier Logistics president, turned to an experienced equipment supplier he had successfully worked with on similar projects in the past.
