Does Continuous Processing have its roots in Daylight Savings?
Among many things, Ben Franklin is credited with the concept of Daylight Saving Time. It does appear rather Franklin like to want to ‘make the best use of daylight hours.’ Franklin witnessed firsthand the productivity and innovation inspired by the industrial revolution taking place in England in the early 18th century. He understood the economic advantage that efficient productivity could bring to world markets and wished to emulate British ingenuity in his commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
“You may delay, but time will not” Ben Franklin
Continuous processing utilizes innovative technology capable of an infinite number of process set ups to produce virtually any mixture or compound in a fraction of the time compared with standard batch mixing.
As it turns out, the city of York, PA not only served as the provisional capital of the Second Continental Congress after the British army occupied Philadelphia, it has served as a major manufacturing center since the early 19th century. In 1825, the first iron steamboat in the United States is built in York. Six years later, the first coal locomotive in the United States is built in York. In the early part of the 20th century, York becomes one of the nation’s top automobile manufacturers and is currently home to a major Harley-Davidson motorcycle plant.
“Time is money” Ben Franklin
In manufacturing there aren’t any other ways to process material faster than continuous. Even a smaller machine is capable of continuously processing 2,000 lbs. of material per hour.
In keeping with the rich manufacturing history of York, PA and in the spirit of increased productivity and efficiency, Readco developed the continuous processor in 1961 as an efficient alternative to batch mixing. Many of which have been in operation for over forty years.
“Energy and persistence conquer all things” Ben Franklin
What is more persistent than continuous operation? Continuous Processing means energy and persistence in and consistency and reliability out.
