Don’t Let Abrasion Wear You Down

Tiny objects can cause extensive damage. Sand, grain, gravel, and other small items are maneuvered regularly in a wide variety of industries. In a short period of time, these particles will rub, grind, and slowly eat through metal equipment. Replacing pipes, augurs, screws, or housings on a regular basis can drain your profits and leave you frustrated. The good news? It’s an avoidable problem. Endurawear Rubber is a relatively inexpensive solution for covering and protecting the exposed parts of your machinery, strengthening your equipment, and keeping your business running smoothly.

Save Money by Recovering Your Clamp Pads

Posted by Sioux Rubber & Urethane Team on Jun 25, 2020 4:47:48 PM

Clamp pads are those necessary pieces of equipment warehouses and distribution centers can’t live without. These forklift attachments are made of steel or aluminum and coated with a rib-designed rubber that allows for easier handling of rolls, barrels, boxes and about anything else that needs to be moved.

So when these powerhouses of the manufacturing industry wear out, they need to be replaced; it is an expense you can’t put off. Using worn-out clamp pads is never a good idea as you risk damaging the material you’re being paid to move. But, the good news is you don’t have to spend as much as you think!

Minimize Risk and Save Money with Tuff-Tube

Posted by Sioux Rubber & Urethane Team on May 20, 2020 11:20:00 PM

Safe grain handling is a top priority for both farmers and grain elevators. Last season’s difficult harvest conditions have required some area farmers to store grain with higher than normal moisture content, according to Southeast Farmers Coop in South Dakota. Unloading this grain can cause a variety of problems from clogs in the tube to bridging in the bin, which is a huge safety hazard. Utilizing best practice safety procedures, like never working alone in a bin, using lock out/tag out procedures and making sure your equipment is free of dust, helps to keep everyone safe. Adding an extra layer of protection from urethane helps keep your equipment safe as well.

2020 is not even halfway over and has already been full of more challenges than we’ve seen since this past decade. But if there’s one thing that never changes it is the need to save money wherever possible, the Great Recession taught us that. Sioux Rubber was founded more than 60 years ago to help save businesses money. Our Endurawear Rubber and Endurawear Urethane solutions, like recovered clamp pads, Abrasiplate®, Hawkpad®, rubber-covered rollers, TuffTube® and more, were developed so companies could get more work out of their tools and machinery, saving money.
