KWS Saves CertainTeed Gypsum $60,000 with New Screw Conveyors

Challenge

Coal-fired power plants use flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems to remove sulfur dioxide from gas pollutants. A form of synthetic gypsum called FGD gypsum is produced as a by-product of the process. FGD gypsum is commonly used in the drywall manufacturing industry as a replacement for natural gypsum. CertainTeed Gypsum replaces critical screw conveyors as part of yearly maintenance. Uninterrupted and flawless equipment delivery and installation was needed to prevent major downtime.

KWS Advantage

The corporate account manager for a major power transmission distributor had worked with KWS on many past projects and knew that KWS would excel on this fast-track project. With the plant shut down already scheduled, time was an increasing concern. KWS provided approval drawings for 11 new screw conveyors within a week with manufacturing beginning immediately. The new KWS screw conveyors were delivered and installed 2 days ahead of schedule, making the plant manager very happy and saving at least $60,000 in potential lost production. KWS provided outstanding customer service from beginning to end.
