Gough Econ Awarded Contract for Multiple Bucket Elevators

Gough Econ Inc. has been selected to supply multiple Econ-O-Lift bucket elevators to a major hydro-processing facility being constructed in Louisiana. The catalyst from the plant will be used to meet the increasing demand for future clean burning fuels by removing impurities and assuring quality filtration in refining the oil.

According to Gough Econ, the multiple bucket elevators will be used to transport various grades of catalyst to several stations in the world-scale hydro-processing catalyst manufacturing facility currently under construction. Bucket sizes will range from 9 to 30 in., with capacities up to 2500 cu ft/hr. Start-up of the facility is scheduled for the end 2009.
The bucket elevators are being custom designed by Gough Econ for the application to assure maximum durability and easy installation and assure maximum resistance to the abrasive nature of the catalyst. Delivery is scheduled for late summer of 2008.
