Ludman Industries equipment helps increase potash yield

Published by , Editor
World Fertilizer,

When I ask leadership teams around the globe each at world-class potash production centres, “What keeps you up at night?” I instantly hear “Fazendo o melhor produto!” or “??????? ?????? ???????!” or “¡Hacer el mejor producto!” or “Making better product.”

I also hear things like “lowering the total cost of ownership and driving down maintenance costs” or “maximising uptime and reducing unplanned downtime” or “finding good staff to backfill my aging experienced work force.”

Here at Ludman Industries providing rugged “information enabled” OEM quality compaction systems is what keeps us up at night.

That’s why at Ludman we focus on the following:

  • Investing in new technology to continuously improve our equipment
  • Reducing the Total Cost of Ownership of our systems
  • Delivering “information enabled” smart plants
  • Building robust equipment incorporating features that simplify the maintenance of the equipment increasing MTBF and OEE and eliminating unplanned downtime

The potash industry is changing and potash producers are changing with it. Farmers now demand products such as time release fertilizers, multi element granular blends, multiple grades of particle sizing, and specialty products. And they all demand high quality products that they can get to their fields.

That is where Ludman comes in.

Our equipment makes superior granular fertilizers while having the highest yielding compactors in the world. Our new super alloy technology, coordinated roll control, absolute positioning force feeders, active hydraulic gap systems, and advanced automation control help our customers see increases in yield by 7-8%.

Tonight when you are awake thinking about your compaction plant, try imagine a world in which you make Superior Product and have Higher Yields while enjoying the Lowest Cost of Ownership. Then think of your partners at Ludman Industries. Sleep well my friends.
