Louis Dreyfus Agricultural Industries
Maintenance plan pays off in six months
Louis Dreyfus Agricultural Industries in Claypool, Indiana USA produces 1 million tons of soybean meal for animal feed and 80 million gallons of biodiesel annually.
The plant manager wanted insight of maintenance activities for budgeting reasons:
- Resources were not available nor time to set up effective controls maintenance programme; and
- Process efficiency suffered from instrument's reactive maintenance Endress+Hauser performed an Installed Base Analysis which surveyed the plant, analysed the situation and made recommendations.
Endress+Hauser then developed a maintenance plan, set up a web-based asset information system, trained the customer's personnel and provided all the resources needed to carry out the plan.
Due to increased efficiencies, Louis Dreyfus Commodities has been able to reduce and better plan their third party maintenance. Just in this area alone, the cost reductions have enabled them to capture a return in their investment in just six monthsFind out more
