Ralspeed - Facilitating Industry

GroupMR4_9_new

As the leading manufacturer of animal feed in the United Kingdom, BOCM PAULS require machinery of the highest quality which is guaranteed to allow their continued trademark levels of high productivity. The company have developed the "total feed business" concept which has the capability of providing animal nutrition in whichever form it is required by farmers, whose needs continue to evolve. Ralspeed are proud to supply products to this essential business.

BOCM PAULS provide a diverse range of animal feeds from their 11 mills and 7 strategically-placed plants to smallholder markets and equestrian and game sectors, as well as maintaining a successful technology division supporting international customers. The company has an emphasis on creating sustainable long-term strategies; thei environmentally-conscious goals are achieved with the help of Ralspeed.

As motor control experts, Ralspeed were the natural choice to provide BOCM PAULS with a brand new variable speed drive system. The original contact came about when representatives from BOCM PAULS became concerned about the sub-standard performance of a worm feeder which forms an integral part of their pellet-forming mills in Bury St. Edmunds. Uniformity of pellet size was inconsistent and engineers from Ralspeed determined that this problem could be solved with the provision of improved control over the worm-feeder's 200kW motor. Our engineers showed that, by replacing the existing DOL starter with one of our variable speed drives, performance could be dramatically enhanced.

As the proposed motor was large and therefore represented a large investment, BOCM PAULS were naturally cautious that the recommended solution would prove effective. Ralspeed Lt working alongside Hayley Drives Ltd were quick to offer our variable speed drive hire service to allow the company to test the product on a trial basis. BOCM PAULS took this opportunity, also taking advantage of our energy recording units to monitor in real time the energy savings via a clear graphical display. After using our hire service, the manager of BOCM PAULS said that the refurbished mill was "now getting excellent product uniformity and productivity" and also noted that "the Ralspeed energy recorder has confirmed that we’ve significantly reduced the power consumption of the feeder, which will mean a very welcome reduction in our energy bills.”

After trying our variable speed drive on a no-obligation trial basis, the manager of BOCM PAULS decided to buy the expertly-engineered unit, stating that the business was "very pleased with the results and with the excellent service received from Ralspeed and Hayley Drives  on the project; also being able to try out the drive before committing to purchase was a huge benefit as it made it very much easier for us to put together a watertight business case for proceeding.”

We would like to thank BOCM PAULS for their excellent feedback.
