One of the largest petrochemical catalyst plants in the world was awarded a major contract that mandated specific extrusion equipment. Within a few months, the OEM augers began to experience metal fatigue and stress fractures, resulting in the screws shearing into pieces.
The company turned to CF Extrusion Technologies for an expert solution. Engineering expertise – combined with a comprehensive understanding of the latest advancements in metallurgical research and technology – allowed CF Extrusion Technologies to design and manufacture a replacement auger with performance and durability characteristics superior to the OEM part. In fact, the design of the CF Extrusion replacement screws not only eliminated failures due to metal fatigue but also increased volume output by 30% – boosting line production efficiencies and profits.
