A year or so ago, Loyd wrote a blog on the use of cylinder cleaning in the ginning operation. Today, most are referred to as Horizontal Cleaner arrangements. This has been a trend that has come and gone. and now returned again. Can you have too many cylinders in your ginning operation? Of course you can. Can they ultimately damage the cotton? Of course they can. I am giving you the link to the blog related to all of this. Click on it and go check it out.
Consolidated forgings are arriving and the are all sold before we even start machining them. They will be ready in a month to six weeks and then will ship out. If you still are interested in Consolidated Ribs for your gin stands give us a call and get on a second run list.
Gin That Cotton
Words and Music by Loyd Vandergriff
We are moving into the New Year quite rapidly. After I wrote the blog on Consolidated ribs, orders starting coming in. Good for us, even better for you. The Vandergriff Rib for Consolidated Gin Stands will eliminate your ribs issues and you can concentrate on other issues in your ginning operation you might have. Consolidated Stands are a Product of Vandergriff Research, but the gin rib from the factory is not a Vandergriff Rib.
A quick word on Continental Gin Ribs. They are currently marketing a new rib, and telling potential customers it is as good as "The Vandergriff Rib." Don't fall for it. One of our customers admitted to trying a set, and said they had to send 255 ribs before he could get enough straight ones to get him a set of 161's. Then, they had to heavily shim the rest. They clearly have issues with straightness and precision. Once installed, more issues arose when ginning, like tags and rib fires. These ribs are manufactured in India. The Vandergriff Rib represents USA research, development and manufacturing at its best. It's Made in America. The quality shows. No foreign made rib can compete with it.
We are also taking orders for Lummus gin stands as well. The sooner you get your orders in, the quicker your rib delivery will be.
We appreciate your business and trust in the Vandergriff Gin Rib. That industry standard for over 20 years.
We are developing tooling and will have all models of Consolidated Gin Ribs available in approximately 3 months. If you need these ribs, you need to call and get on the waiting list. This will reserve your sets for you.
