Project: Grain Terminal Operation Product Quality Improvement
Client: United Grain Corporation
Location: Vancouver, Washington, USA
UGC retained CMC Engineering and Management Ltd. in 2019 to review problems with product damage at their facility in Vancouver, Washington.
The objective was to reduce unacceptable damage to friable products such as: corn, peas and soya beans.
CMC designed custom slow-down product retarders installed inside the bins to reduce product speed to an acceptable level so as to eliminate product breakage.
This project is now in the final phase of construction; testing is scheduled for early summer 2020.
