[Fairfield, OH, U.S.A. - January 9, 2014] - Western States, the leading centrifuge manufacturer to the sugar industry for 96 years, introduces a new product – the Universal Discharger. The new Universal Discharger eliminates the need for multiple inventories, maintenance headaches, and it helps increase throughput on G8 machines.

"With our Universal Discharger, adjustment time is decreased from four hours to 15 minutes. Assuming a machine produces one ton of sugar per cycle with 20 cycles/hour, we've gained 3.75 hours which equals 75 tons of additional sugar produced. At Western States, we understand that peak efficiency and performance are essential to helping our customers achieve maximum profitability," states Robert Sinnard, Director of Sales and Marketing.

The Western States' Universal Discharger has a new external cam design which allows for quick and easy adjustment. Maintenance is simplified. The new Discharger's universality replaces most dischargers on G8 machines. Added strength and durability, improved corrosion resistance, increased reliability and new greaseless Rulon® Bushings are but a few of the added features.

Effective immediately, the new Universal Discharger is available for purchase. Contact Western States to get more details or to place an order.
