The employee designed initiative built a molten sulphur unloading manifold system the length of the spur, which allows for increased capacity, increased safety and decreased service time of the rail cars. This, in addition to the recent installation of a 1,500 ton molten sulphur storage tank and heating pumping system dramatically increases the production efficiency of the Atmore facility.
