Potato Chip Manufacturer Keeps their Spice Machine Moving


Our customer makes potato chips in multiple flavor profiles. In order to do this, they require the use of a spice machine that moves constantly to add flavor to freshly cooked chips. They were having problems due to the inflexibility of the cable that was on the machine.


To keep the spice machine in top working condition, we suggested they try our Super-Trex® Ultra-Gard™ portable cord for the flexible specially compounded TSE jacket that resists abrasion, tearing, impact, oil and most chemicals.


When we checked in with the customer at six months, TPC cable was still in the application. With the previous cable, they were changing it out twice a month! In these six months, we’ve saved this facility over $5,500 in material costs, nearly $2,500 in labor and 84 hours in increased production.
