"That is the craziest thing I have heard in a long time.  Any good V-Belt can handle a wide temperature range.  My car back in Canada would not shred belts at -40.  It seems that the alignment is not correct.  I would also…"

"I am looking into the same issue.  There are screens or filters that are available for grease traps.  I'm not convinced that most of the chocolate will float to the surface in a typical grease trap.  I am meeting with our city…"

Glue/Sealant for Cocoatown Large Grinders
