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.

Field Reports on Vandy 222 Rib

I just received some information on how our Vandergriff Rib for Consolidated's 222 saw gin is performing in Australia.  This is from Southern Cotton, Chris Veness Gin Manager.  They have 4- 222 saw gin stands and have installed the Vandergriff Rib in two stands. Factory supplied Lummus Ribs for Consolidated stands are running in the other two. I will let this email speak for itself.

Hi Loyd, The Ribs we have installed are running perfectly. We installed them in gin #1 and gin #4 and ran a trial on all four gin stands.
The trial consisted of not checking ribs every hour as per usual. Instead we did not check the ribs at all. After 21 hours of ginning the first rib fire developed in gin #2.
We repeated the trial twice more with the same results (a fire in the Lummus built ribs).
Our current Rib checking reigeme is to check the Lummus Ribbed Gin Stands hourly. The Vandergriff Ribbed Gin Stands do not Get Checked, they have not generated any tags as yet.
We have Ginned around 25,000 bales so far. Will let you know if any problems arise.
I would like to organise another two sets of ribs also.

Chris Veness

There is no need to consider converting your Consolidated stands if you are having rib issues. This issue can be easily rectified by installing Vandergriff Ribs and save you tons of money avoiding expensive alternatives. Let your Consolidated Gin Stands gin to their potential.  Put in our rib, put the stand in and just let it gin.

Vandergriff 222 Ribs.

It is really no secret how much trouble Consolidated/Lummus has had with gin ribs for their 222 saw gin stands.  Due to so many calls to Vandergriff Inc., we stepped up and made a rib for these stands using the same process as we use for our other ribs.  The drawing for the rib was taken from the files of A.L  Vandergriff.  It is, a production drawing.  Lummus is now offering to convert the 222 to a Lummus 234.  For the most part, this is to dodge the rib nagging rib issues that plagued the stand.   The Consolidated 222 saw gin stand is an excellent high capacity gin stand, one that many made a significant investment in.  All it needs is a good high performance gin rib.  Why spend an excessive amount of money to solve rib issues?  Remember all the marketing that went into promoting the 222 saw gin stand?  Nothing has changed.  It just needs a good gin rib. We have one.
