Batteries

ALL PRESTOLITE PLANTS USE SIMPSON

The Prestolite Company
July 10, 1970

“The Prestolite Company, which manufactures products ranging from batteries to electric windshield wipers, is a division of the ELTRA Corporation,” stated Mr. Chuck R. Houk, plant manager of Prestolite’s Visalia, California, battery plant. “We are one of 6 United States and 3 Canadian plants of Prestolite’s battery division, which is the third largest battery manufacturer in the world.”

SIMPSON – SUPERIOR TO ANY OTHER
“We bought Simpson mullers because they have proven to be superior to any other type or make.”

ALL PRESTOLITE PLANTS USE SIMPSON
“Most battery manufacturers use Simpson, and all of Prestolite’s battery plants do.”

COMBINES SEVERAL MIXING PRINCIPLES
“Simpson mullers combine several mixing principles, all in one machine: mulling, scraping, and turning or shoveling. No other mixing device does the job so efficiently and without lumping.”

8/10 POUNDS EVENLY DISBURSED IN 2400 POUNDS
“Even disbursement is the name of the game: we must have a completely homogenized mix… not an easy task considering that some ingredients amount to only 8/10 pounds per 2400-pound batch!”

WOULD CONSIDER NOTHING BUT SIMPSON
“And that’s where the multiple mixing action of the Simpson muller out-performs all others. It is relatively easy to blend equal or almost equal quantities, and most mixers do that adequately. For our operation, in which battery quality hangs on the consistency of the paste, we could not consider anything but a Simpson.”

TURN IT ON, THEN FORGET IT
“Reliability is another Simpson forte. You walk to it, turn it on, and then you forget it. These mullers just keep running.”

15 YEARS WITHOUT BREAKDOWNS
“Breakdowns are quite critical, of course. If one of the 2 mullers should fail, we could produce both pastes in the other, but production would be cut in half. Before I came to this plant a few weeks ago, I worked for Prestolite’s Oklahoma City plant. At that plant 2 Simpson 2400-pound mullers have been mixing battery paste for 15 years without a single breakdown causing production losses.”

FAITHFUL DUPLICATION OF MIX
“The thorough mixing action of the Simpson Mix-Mullers guarantees faithful duplication of the mix, once the formulation of the paste is established. And, they do it all day without adjustments.”

MINIMAL MAINTENANCE
“Maintenance is minimal. Our preventative maintenance program calls for once-a-week lubrication, a matter of less than 15 minutes. And back in Oklahoma City we replaced the scrapers twice during the last 6 years. Nothing else.

SIMPSON – GUARANTOR OF QUALITY
“The Simpson-Mix Mullers are, indeed, the guarantors of consistent paste quality, an invaluable aid in producing the finest batteries on the market.”

SIMPSON MULLERS FOR TOTAL AUTOMATION
“These Mix-Mullers operate so dependably, we could convert to total automation, i.e., n/c operation through the entire cycle with no person attending. Once we do – and it may not be too far in the future -” concluded Mr. Hook, “we know that we can rely on our Simpson Mix-Mullers.”
