Game Changer Conversions.

These are 2 of the most recent 161-181 Conversions done by Vandergriff Inc. They are running at Cherokee Gin in Alabama.

These are cruising at 20 BPH per stand. 40 BPH in 2 stand plant.  If you have Continental Gin Stands and want to increase your capacity without spending excessive amounts of money on new gin stands, this is a very attractive option for you.   If  gin company's come knocking on your door wanting to sell you 10-12' wide gin stands, make sure you consider all the cost involved with it.  Changing overhead. Lint Cleaning.  Also, bigger fans and more horsepower for drying. Bigger burners, more BTU's.  Press upgrades. $$$.

Vandergriff Inc is the pioneer in the move to these narrower saw spacings, and gin stand conversions. Mr. Vandergriff did the first one in 1996.  This is the only conversion with the Game Changer Vandergriff Rib. If you want to upgrade your plant , this should be an attractive option for you to consider.

Products of Vandergriff Research are made in the USA.  Not China. Not India. Not Pakistan.  The quality shows.

Vandergriff Inc. Fall Updates

Most USA ginners are off and running, while overseas ginners are starting to wind down.  If you are interested in the Vandergriff Gin Rib, we wanted you to know how important it is to get your order in as early as you can for the 2017 season. Yes these ribs can be hard to get as spring rolls on into summer. Here is why.

CNC Production Machine, Inc out of Charlotte, NC machines between 7,000-8,000 forgings a year into the various models of Vandergriff Ribs.  They have been doing this from the start (1994) and have the production of this rib down.  But to machine this type of volume of forgings is time consuming.  If we sell out of a particular model of rib in May, it will be hard to get the forgings and have them machined in time for you to get them when you need them for the upcoming season. This is why you need to order early.

Vandergriff Inc provides ribs for the following gin stands.

Lummus 116, 158 and 170 and 224.

This Lummus Rib also fits Cherokee Gin Stands.

Continental 141, 161, 201.

Also for the Vandergriff 181 Game Changer Conversion .

Consolidated 164, 198, 184 and 222.

Vandergriff Ribs are the only ones not made from cheap foreign castings. They are made in the USA.
With the narrower saw spacings becoming more popular, its imperative you use a rib made from a steel forging. Inaccurate cast ribs will not hold up to the stress that 200+ HP motors apply to them.

Vandergriff Ribs are running world-wide in all gin operations that realize how important it is to not skimp on gin ribs for their expensive gin stands and want optimum performance from them.

Call Loyd Vandergriff if you are interested in these ribs, or need replacements.

Vandergriff Game Changer Conversions

Vandergriff "Game Changer" Conversions for Continental Gin Stands loading up and heading out to Alabama. This gin is increasing their capacity in the most cost-effective way possible. No costly overhead modifications, or lint cleaner upgrades.
Vandergriff Inc. is the pioneer in gin stand conversions, converting a Continenal 161 to a 181 in 1996. This was the seminal conversion that became the template for any other competing companies  that later came out with these same saw spacings.  Vandergriff Conversions are the only one that has the Vandergriff Game Changer Rib.  Competitors are not able to duplicate this key feature of the conversion.

Mid-Summer Updates

It is smokin hot here in the Central Valley of California, and before you know it, the 4th of July will be here.

I wanted to update you on a few things, especially the performance of our Vandergriff Rib for Consolidated 184 and 222 saw gin stands.

Field reports from two different ginning operations in Australia continue to be outstanding.  Absolutely no issues at all with these ribs.  No tagging. No rib fires. No breakage of ribs.  This allows the gin stand to stay in and just gin.  Hour after hour. Shift after shift. Week after week.  This adds up to  a huge increase in productivity and increased profits for a ginning operation.  There is much talk by political candidates here in the USA, (especially by the Republican candidate) to "Buy American,  and Make America Great Again."  We at Vandergriff Inc. are all for that. Our steel, our forgings, and our CNC machined ribs are made from start to finish here in the USA.  The quality and performance shows.  Our competitors purchase their gin ribs from China, India, and even worse Pakistan. There is nothing "American" about them at all. More importantly,  they simply can not match the Vandergriff Rib in terms of quality, precision and performance. If you want to get what you paid for in terms of performance from your gin stand, we are here to help.   

We also have enough 181 Continental Game Changer ribs in stock to do two more 161-181 conversions.  No need to purchase the big wide gin stands forcing you to spend excessive amounts of money in other areas of your ginning operation. We can get you more capacity in a much more cost effective way. And as you well know, this is very important in the economic climate of today for todays ginners.  We are the pioneers in this area,  and the only one that offers the Vandergriff Game Changer Rib.  With the narrower saw spacings, cast ribs have a difficult time holding up to the extreme pressure placed on them by denser seed rolls and more often than not, increased horsepower applied to the roll box.

Jet Dryers:
Our Jet Dryers are now running all over the cotton belt here in the USA, and in several big operations in Australia.  No other dryer on the market creates as much turbulence, single locks, and reduces moisture as efficiently as they do.  Very low static drop, and the cotton enters the cleaners warm enhancing trash release. 

Give Vandergriff Inc a call.
