Do You Have Mad Scientists?

They’re fun Halloween costume ideas…Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde, Lex Luthor, Doc Brown, and so many other rabidly driven scientists, eccentric engineers, crackpot inventors, or indefatigable innovators – they’re all great, but we want to know about your Mad Scientists.

Do you have actual scientists who are angry? …or are your “Mad Scientists” impulsive experimenters on the plant floor?

Whether your plant has upset scientists or an exuberant innovator on the floor (who is filled with unbridled passion to experiment and try new things) – Koss Industrial can help you optimize your process and work with your Mad Scientists.

…if your scientists are truly mad (…as in insane, unhinged, deranged, or just plain loopy), then you have our sympathies (and you should probably try to stay on their good side)!

Manage the Mad Scientist on your floor.

Prevent the “Mad Scientists” on the floor from following ineffective impulses and ideas – record & report chemical use.

You see it happening…again.

Your “Mr. Clean” has the best intentions…his logic appears to be:
“If I use a half gallon today, then a whole gallon tomorrow will work even better! Probably twice as fast!!”

Sound familiar? We know what happens. Adding more cleaning solution is rarely the answer. If we use twice as much detergent, our clothes aren’t twice as clean after washing, but your “Mr. Clean” doesn’t  believe that…and you’re buying twice as much chemical.

Whether you are making ice cream or you’re cleaning equipment – KOSS can help you work with your innovative, impulsive machine operator (a.k.a. Mad Scientist). Don’t stifle their creativity, control your innovator’s environment. You can even empower their experiments by monitoring, recording, and reporting the results. “Why was this batch bad? Why is this one better?” Give them the tools they need to succeed and protect your batches by controlling their “experiments.” Unlock the secrets of your Mad Scientist’s success – partner with Koss Industrial’s Electrical Dept. for chemical monitoring with controls. Automation, Controls, Reporting and more – trust us to optimize your Mad Scientist’s top-secret laboratory.

Appease your (literally) Mad Scientists.

If they’re literally unhappy or upset, we have a few ideas on how to help your scientists find happiness.

Scientists & Laboratories – okay, so we all agree that they go together like peanut butter & jelly, cheese & crackers, a DeLorean DMC-12 & time travel…so what’s our solution to keeping your scientists happy?  A totally wicked laboratory (wicked as in awesome, not wicked like witches). You can’t be a great Mad Scientist without an awesome Secret Laboratory.

Not quite ready to invest in lab-size equipment or plants? You could try appeasing your scientists with smaller gifts, trinkets and flowers; but Koss Industrial might still be able to help you. PLAN B, we recommend you try humor on your actually-angry Mad Scientists; maybe say something like “Don’t trust atoms…they make up everything.”  …unless you have a lot of employees named Adam, then that is probably not a good joke for you to be using in the workplace.

Finishing Incline Conveyors

What do they do? This conveyor maintains temperature and ‘finishes’ adding texture (grain structure) to Italian (Pasta Filata) Cheeses. The Finishing Incline Conveyor essentially extends the filatura step (that creates the characteristic elasticity) of the Pasta Filata Cheese Making process. Filatura?  The Filatura step entails kneading & stretching the cheese in/with  hot water/whey to achieve  the desired texture/grain structure.

The teflon coating, which is available on Finishing Incline Conveyors’ augers and interior/exterior body, creates a non-stick surface. Teflon coating is an available option for additional equipment, both inside and outside of italian cheese making. Koss Industrial has over 30 years of experience designing & fabricating some of the world’s finest custom equipment for the Food, Dairy and Sanitary Stainless Industries.
