Grain Milling

Grain Milling

Dwight’s agricultural background and roots in the Midwest has led PPC to become the leading supplier of corrosion resistant products to the grain milling industry. The corrosion challenges faced by personnel in the wet corn milling, soybean, and wheat processing facilities, along with the desire of the personnel at PPC to help find solutions for these issues, has shaped the product line PPC represents. From concrete floors to process tank linings, from secondary containments to fireproofing requirements, from quick setting waste treatment tank linings to fast-curing concrete needs, there isn’t a product in PPC’s line that doesn’t have a place in the milling industry.

Here are just a few examples:

Flooring – Flowcrete’s Flowfresh, a urethane cement for harsh floor applications. This application addresses constant erosion of your floors due to water and chemical attack and wear due to heavy traffic items such as forklifts.

Concrete admixture – Gill # 33 concrete admixture – added to a concrete pour it will cause the concrete to develop 90% of its compressive strength in 24 hours speeding the cure of the concrete resulting in a quick turnaround.

Coatings products – Carboline line of protective coatings such as Carboguard, Carbothane and Carbomastic are the industries’ leading corrosion resistant coatings. Carboline products will provide optimum corrosion resistance to your steel assets allowing for years of service life.

Energy conservation and personal protection products – Mascoat’s Delta T insulative coatings for both energy conservation and personal protection. With todays rising energy costs, these materials have helped many plants save money where conventional insulation methods don’t work.

Tank Linings – ProPolymer Corporation’s fiberglass flake filled vinyl ester Tank Lining vinyl ester based system for process vessels. These linings are FDA food contact approved.

Water and Wastewater linings – Polibrid’s Polibrid 705 is an elastomeric urethane used in waste and water treatment tanks as a long term solution for corrosion control with the added benefit of quick turnaround. Polibrid 705 is ready for immersion service within hours of application instead of the days it takes other conventional tank lining materials.

Fireproofing products – Carboline’s full line of industrial spray applied industrial fireproofing materials can meet any industrial fireproofing need your facility will require. With a staff of well-trained fireproofing experts, we can engineer your system to meet the UL coded hour rating that is being required by your code or insurance carrier.

Vibration damping – Escoweld vibration damping polymer grouts have proven themselves to substantially reduce the wear caused by vibration and increase the time between failures as much as 6 times that of cementious grouts. In a milling facility an increase in time between failures results in a decrease in maintenance expense.

Secondary containment lining – ProPolymer Corporation has a wide array of unreinforced and reinforced polymer lining system for acid, caustic and solvents to keep you compliant with EPA containment issues.
