TAKING CONTROL
How a new system transformed a Louisiana plant, boosted production, dramatically reduced waste and created a safer operation

Asphalt plant controls
An early morning asphalt paving job at Glenn Lege. The asphalt producer appreciates a 24/7 service company they can call at any hour should problems arise on site.

All in all, Neuville is very pleased with his collaboration with Stansteel. The system was installed in a timely manner, especially given a tight window of only a week to complete the job.

"We can now do so much more," he explains. The system records accurately, helps the production team problem solve, and it has significantly reduced waste and guess work. Before, the corporate office put a lot of pressure on Neuville's plant because the numbers didn't match up – "the computer said we produced 600 tons but shipped out 750." Now, the results are clear. "We also went from 8 tons of waste a day to less than a half a ton, and I credit that to the controls," says Neuville.

Communicating with Stansteel's support team has proven to be a positive turn for the Glenn Lege asphalt plant crew. They can always call someone who has the answer. Gilpin explains that the Accu-Track is supposed to be very easy to troubleshoot via phone because of its customized electrical drawings and the knowledge of those who answer the questions, sometimes even in the middle of the night. "We are not a 9 to 5 kind of company," he explains. "We are here whenever you need us."

Safety is also no longer a worry as the new system from Stansteel has equipment interlocked and the alarms working properly. Maybe now, Neuville can finally take that well-deserved vacation day.
