Custom Gin Controls

At it’s most basic, the economics of gin operation tells us that the cotton industry must continuously advance as gin owners look for ways to overcome fixed and variable costs associated with owning and operating a gin while improving upon efficiency and meeting the increased quality demands from growers, spinners and consumers. The key is gin controls.

Compressed Air System

compressed-air-gin

Air, primarily, is the means by which cotton travels throughout the entire ginning process. Balancing the right moisture levels within that air directly effects the quality of the end product. Air must be at times heated, humidified, dried or moisture added all within one system and at any given time while in production. Air also enables pneumatic equipment to run. To understate the importance of air in a gin operations is a grave mistake.  Not only is air a critical element within the system it can also be a huge consumer of power.  Profitability is influenced by how a gin manages its compressed air system.

Engineering Services

Engineering services should always be utilized when constructing a new or retrofitting an existing gin. This service will identify all equipment subject to arc flash and coordinate the proper protective devices to minimize the arc flash potential. Through this study, proper fuse sizing, breakers, proper equipment settings, and relays can be recommended along with their proper placement within the system.

  • Arc Flash
  • Coordination Studies
  • Thermal Imaging

Transformer Services

A smooth operating gin starts at the very beginning, the source of power. You can have all the other equipment geared up ready for ginning but without reliable power coming in work cannot commence.

Brandon and Clark brings power from the utility into the gin with our pole and padmount transformer services. Our electricians and transformer technicians will ensure power is NEVER a source of downtime.

Our preventative maintenance services ensures uptime and includes: oil sampling, and preliminary tests, remote sampler relocation kits for future oil sampling that eliminates de-energizing the padmount, and leak repairs.

  • Field service and repair
  • Preventative maintenance
  • Remote oil sampler kit installations
  • Custom padmount manufacturing
