“We were looking to put in a more reliable conveyor,” said Lige Moore, plant manager of LJR Forest Products. “We had some conveyors we had built under our pellet mills to convey everything from the pellet mill itself into the cooler, but we were having some problems.
“We have had problems on other conveyors in the past,” he said. The conveyors’ manufacturers had told him their conveyors “were going to move so many cubic feet,” Lige said. “And when the conveyor loaded up, it did not want to handle said volume”—and that with “with a lot more horsepower than the SMART Conveyors™ are using now,” he said.
