Why APPI: When you are the world leader in equipment that grinds, crushes, crumbles, breaks, flakes, hulls, hammers, shreds and pelletizes a nearly endless list of food and fodder you also must be a world leader in maintaining that equipment. CPM is that leader and to help maintain that position they have standardized on our HD2000 pneumatic hoists packaged for use on their die hoist trolleys for more than 15 years.
Adam Benner, their Product Engineering Manager says, “Our pellet mills have consumable parts that must be mounted, removed, and replaced regularly and our Columbia die hoists allow us to do that safely, quickly, and reliably. We chose “Allied Power” as our preferred vendor because of their exceptional product knowledge, sales and service quality”.
To help keep their production process as efficient as possible the pneumatic die trolley hoist is provided on a mounting bracket with the directional control valve mounted and plumbed on it. This reduces installation for CPM to putting in four bolts and connecting two hoses.
The photos show CPM customers using the die handling hoist rigged with two-parts of line to put a die ring weighing 3500 lb. into position for installation on a pellet mill.
