Hot Off the Press

Wye Line Diverter System

It was a nightmare,
until a Vortex Wye Line Diverter system was installed.

Tiny businessman fighting with scary hand shadow
For this plastics manufacturer, the process of conveying plastic pellets was a production and safety nightmare. The hoses took up production floor space, employees needed to be cognizant of the ever-changing location of hoses and production slowed as hoses were relocated. On occasion, hoses were connected to the wrong source bin, causing product to be made with improper materials - rendering them off-spec and rejected.

What our clients say

When we needed a replacement Pollution Control Baghouse/Filter, Schenck guided us their Ontario Sales Representatives - Rate Technology Systems.  We found RTS excelled at customer service and after-market assistance.  Ryan was especially accommodating when it came to project scope changes or revisions, dealing with "curve balls" easily and professionally. Two projects are up and running with no issues with commissioning or fitments.

I would recommend Rate Technology as they've been knowledgeable, professional, understanding and accommodating. Looking forward to working with RTS again in the future.

What Did Rate Learn? Active listening. We were met with last minute project scope changes but relied on active listening to ensure necessary changes were accomplished smoothly.

Rate Technology made our screening and separation problems much easier to deal with. A one-stop-shop for multiple equipment types, RTS provides the ability to provide multiples types of equipment from a single source - and at a great price. I recommend Rate Technology for quick response, great pricing and good products. The result? A happy customer!

What Did Rate Learn?  ASK! Initially, Shred-Tech were looking for 1 piece of equipment. After asking about their downstream process, they ended up purchasing 2 pieces and driving their costs down considerably.

We  had a lack of confidence and some quality issues with our previous magnet supplier. Happily, since we first contacted Rate Technology, we have experienced good service, clear communication and quick replies to any questions.

RTS is always available and has achieved quick turnaround on replacement parts for some of our clients in downtime situations.

Our magnet solutions are far better thought out and are supported by specific performance sheets, enabling us to help our customers better understand their choices.

I would highly recommend Rate Technology for great service, good selection of products, quick turnaround and remarkable product knowledge.

What Did Rate Learn? Consistency. RTS learned, once again, the importance of being consistent with customer service as a focus for long-term partnerships.
