Jeffress wins Cane Quality Testing technology business in Sudan

Jeffress wins Cane Quality Testing technology business in Sudan

Jeffress Engineering has been successful in winning the job of implementing a new Sugarcane Quality Testing facility at Kenana sugar in Sudan. Jeffress will install Jeffco InfraCana automated sugarcane sample analysis technology for analysis of every truck of incoming sugarcane into the factory. Jeffress will also provide Jeffco WD02 Wet Disintegrator for validation analysis processes and a core sampler from Brazil. Jeffress concept drawings will be used for the design of the CTU facility.

KSC has used Jeffco equipment for almost 20 years in its routine laboratories and R & D divisions. It will be the 1st formal facility of its kind in the region, underlining the innovation and engineering quality of the Kenana sugar processor and its staff.

Cutter Grinder training for our Japanese agent

Cutter Grinder training for our Japanese agent

Our Japanese agent NSP recently sent over three staff members for deep training on our Jeffco CG03 Cutter Grinders. Specifically they learned about the upgrades implemented for our new CG04J version built specifically for our Japanese sugar mill clients. After many years of reliable operation and not a single operator injury the Okinawan and Kagoshima industries are understandably thrilled with the improved safety and performance characteristics of our technology. Every single sample taken from an incoming truck across the entire industry is processed through Jeffco equipment. The Japanese are proud of their performance and we are proud of our technology assisting them in their sugarcane quality determination objectives.

Ms Atsuko Hasegawa, Mr Fumiharu Mochizuki and Ms Hiromi Baba attended the training at our head office and factory facility in Adelaide in September 2019.

Obsolete JEFFCO equipment support and spares ends at the end of 2019

Jeffress Engineering announces the end of support and spare parts for old products.

These products have been supported for 50 years in some cases and we have found it difficult to reliably and economically source spare parts in recent times. Spare parts will be available only until the end of 2019. We expect stock levels will gradually reduce to zero during the early part of 2020. Please see attached notices at the bottom of this post for further information.

The following products are impacted:

JEFFCO CG02 Cutter Grinder
JEFFCO 291 series Wet Disintegrator
JEFFCO 229 series Wet Disintegrator

 

WD292 Onsite

 

We recommend you consider any spare parts you need for these products and place orders before the end of 2019.

 

CG Dual Funnel

 

We also recommend upgrading your older equipment to improve your analysis processes and gain significant safety, performance and time saving benefits. We recommend the JEFFCO CG03CB Cutter Grinder and the JEFFCO WD02 Wet Disintegrator. Please contact us for quotations.  Further information on each of these products is available on this website.

We will do our best to assist you during this transition. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of help.

Okinawa Sugar Industry host Jeffress Engineering visit

Okinawa Sugar Industry host Jeffress Engineering visit

During February 2019 the Sugar Industry in Okinawa, Japan hosted a visit by Jeffress Engineering for inspections and technical collaborations regarding the JEFFCO technology the industry relies upon for high accuracy cane quality measurement. Every sugar factory uses JEFFCO CG03 Cutter Grinder technology to ensure accurate payment of cane quality for growers and millers in their payment laboratories. Chris Henderson (General Manager) and Nico Petiet (Senior Mechanical Engineer) toured several facilities and met with all relevant industry organisations.

Since installing JEFFCO technology in 2006 the Okinawan sugar industry has gone from a situation where injuries to operators of the previous sugar cane shredding equipment occurred perhaps once or twice each year to no injuries across 12 years of operation in 10 sugar factories and using 16 JEFFCO Cutter Grinders.  The high regard the equipment has in Japan for an enviable safety record is well earned!

JEFFRESS Engineering hosts a visitor from Japan

JEFFRESS Engineering hosts a visitor from Japan

JEFFRESS Engineering recently hosted a visit by the Managing Director of NSP in Japan, Mr Yasuhiro Maruyama. NSP are the distributors and service agents for JEFFCO products in Japan.

We have 18 JEFFCO CG03 Cutter Grinders in current operation across the Japanese sugar industry.

Many were supplied with JEFFRESS Engineering custom-built elevators to assist the feeding of core samples to the JEFFCO equipment.

Prior to implementation of the JEFFCO Cutter Grinders it was normal for the sugar industry in Japan to sustain one or two injuries to operators in a normal harvest year.

The advanced integrated safety mechanisms in the JEFFCO CG03 have reduced injuries to zero – equivalent to 180 years of cutter grinder operation without a single operator injury!  Highlighting the significantly improved safety record Mr Maruyama reported the satisfaction of managers in Japanese factories that the improved safety record was a result of the high quality manufacture and safe design of JEFFCO equipment.
