Ludman Industries provides an overview of its 'information enabled' OEM quality compaction systems.

When leadership teams around the globe at world class potash production centres are asked, “What keeps you up at night?” Ludman Industries instantly hear “Fazendo o melhor produto!” or “??????? ?????? ???????!” or “¡Hacer el mejor producto!” or “Making better product.” It also hears 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.” Ludman Industries focuses on providing ‘information enabled’ OEM quality compaction systems including the following:

  • Investing in new technology to continuously improve equipment.
  • Reducing the total cost of ownership of its 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.

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