French® oilseed preparation equipment and systems achieve desired results, most efficiently Successful oilseed processing plants require preparation systems that provide consistent product to the oilseed solvent extraction system. To provide a consistent product, oilseed preparation systems must have reliable equipment, precisely integrated through quality engineering design, aided by years of oilseed preparation experience.
French understands the importance equipment reliability has on oilseed preparation system performance. French’s proprietary line of durable Cracking Mills, Flaking Mills, Conditioners, Pre-presses, and Enhanser™ Presses have a worldwide reputation for years of reliable operation.
Reliable equipment alone does not assure consistent operation. All of the equipment must be precisely engineered into a process system. French system design engineers have a thorough knowledge of the equipment they manufacture and use this intimate knowledge to design reliable oilseed preparation systems.
Since 1900, French has supplied thousands of pieces of long lasting oilseed preparation equipment and hundreds of successful complete oilseed equipment systems for nearly all commercial oilseeds. Many customers process multiple oilseeds in one oilseed preparation system.

A s program chairm an fo r the Ik s ix ty-th ird annual Short
Course fo r O il M ill Operators w h ich w ill take place A pril 9-11 in College Station, Texas, I w ou ld like to extend a personal inv ita tion to everyone w ho is interested in learn ing more about the issues w h ich d irec tly affect our industry.
W hen Steve D oty o f the Food Protein Research & D evelopm ent Center, Texas A & M U niversity, and I conferred as to the course theme, there was really on ly one answer. G overnm enta l com p liance is the o n ly factor w h ich w ill eventua lly im pact every decision that is made in an oilseed processing fac ility . Standards and regulations w ill be considered in every equ ipm ent change w e make, every bu ild in g w e erect, every d itch w e dig, and every em ployee w e w ork . In fact, I am w illin g to bet that at this very
mom ent, there are standards or regulations w h ich govern every single action that takes place in an oilseed processing plant. You may have to look hard to find them , you may not w an t to find them , but they are there, and as governm ent continues to g row the ir enforcem ent w ill becom e more com m onplace.
W ho w ill handle com p liance concerns fo r your facility? Have they been prepared fo r the job? D o they know w h ich standards app ly to your fa c ility and w h ich ones do not? Do they depend upon the governm ent agencies like O SH A and EPA to prov ide them w ith new standards and updates? Does your com pany take fu ll advantage o f industry meetings and seminars concern ing com p liance issues?
These are all questions w e must ask. H iring consultants fo r a special jo b is fine, but they lack know ledge o f your fa c ility , and may not be available on-site w hen you rea lly need them . A fu ll o r part-tim e com pliance o ffice r is becom ing more o f a necessity every day, and fo r that person to be e ffic ien t at the ir job , they must learn w h ich standards and regulations app ly to the ir fac ility , and w h ich ones do not. They must also understand the relevant standards and regulations in order to deve lop v iab le im p lem enta tion plans w h ich use ava ilab le resources to the ir m axim um effect.
This is w here tra in ing becomes cruc ia l to the w e ll­ being o f our businesses, not on ly w here com p liance is concerned, but in all facets o f p lan t operations. I tru ly believe that every person w ith in the oilseed industry should take advantage o f the m any meetings w h ich are offered each year, in c lud ing the A pril short course, to insure that they, and those w ho w o rk around them possess the know ledge they require to be leaders in the ir respective fields.
In c losing l w o u ld like to say that w e w ill look fo rw ard to seeing you at this year's Short Course fo r O il M ill Operators. Thank you and I hope that you all en joy a prosperous 1995.

Update On The Agency And Activities Related To Oilseed Processing
Since 1993, Steven Verett has served as I the executive director of the Texas Food and Fibers Commission based in Dallas, Texas, representing the interests of producers of
I various agricultural products and related fibers. | The primary focus is on cotton, however, other oilseeds grown in Texas are also receiving the
commission’s attention. Though the responsibilities associated with his position are
time-consuming, he continues to be involved in operating a 4,000-acre farm in Crosby County, Texas. In partnership with his brother, Mr. Verett produces cotton, grain sorghum, wheat and sunflowers. Production of these crops has brought with it a very good understanding of current USDA programs and how they impact crop production.
Early on, Mr. Verett began a series of leadership activities which has brought him into the realm of the Food and Fibers Commission. In 1981 he served as the president of the County Farm Bureau followed by a position on the State Advisory Committee. From there Mr. Verett served as Cotton Council International board member overseeing foreign production for U.S. cotton. Fie served as president and chairman of the board for the Texas Plains Cotton Growers, Inc. organization and on the USDA Cotton Marketing Advisory Committee.
During the period of 1992-1993, Mr. Verett served in a variety of positions with the National Cotton Council. Through 1993, he continued to be involved with Plains Cotton Growers, Inc., particularly his role as 1992 chairman overseeing the management of the 29-year old boll weevil diapause control program.
Mr. Veeett achieved a BBA in accounting from Texas Tech University, Lubbock, in 1976 and attended the Cotton Foundation Leadership Class in 1985. A native of Lubbock, he continues to hold residence there.
The Texas Food and Fibers Commission, initiated by the cotton producers of Texas in 1941, is involved in several areas of research related to progress in agriculture which could be of value to much of the U. S. industry and its many facets. This presentation will review what TFFC does and how it is changing.
Issues facing the oilseed processing industry, such as hexane as a solvent, and research into new uses for proteins are just a few of the relevant areas stimulating funding from the commission. Additionally, in an effort to remain responsive to the needs of Texas agriculture the commission’s interests have extended into Texas- produced oilseeds in addition to cottonseed.
A Hands on View of Air Pollution Control Equipment
Gary Sullivan is owner of Sullivan Sales & Service Company in Sherman, Texas. His com pany specia lizes in design and installation of air pollution control and material handling systems.
Priorto starting his own company in 1986 he 1 was employed by Continental Air Systems in
Sherman, as manager of quality control and plant maintenance. Mr. Sullivan has been involved in the design and installation
of particulate air pollution control systems throughout much of the United States. In addition, he has instructed in-house air systems seminars in Texas, Virginia and Georgia.
He has worked with companies for Title V permits in Texas, North Carolina and Georgia. He is also the air systems consultant for a major peanut processing company.
Mr. Sullivan’s professional activities include membership in the American Society for Quality Control and senior member of Society of Manufacturing Engineers. He has served on the Grayson County College advisory committee and was chairman for SME Chapter 255. Mr. Sullivan is certified by ASOC as a quality technician/non-destructive testing and by AWS as welding inspector.
Air pollution control equipment in the oilseed processing plant has a variety of potential to make areas clean and safe during operation. This discussion will encompass field proven concepts of cyclone systems, bag filters and drum filters.
NFPA Standard - A Review Of Changes
Tom Phillips is the plant manager of Southern Cotton Oil Company, division of ADM, Lubbock, Texas and is responsible for the operations of the Lubbock plant operations.
He is a native Californian and has been with Anderson Clayton/Paymaster Oil Mill since 1964, staying with the plant when purchased
by Southern Cotton Oil. During this time he has worked in the California, Arizona and Texas operations.
Mr. Phillips is a past president of the International Oil Mill Superintendents Association and is a past member of its board of directors. He is co-chairman for the American Cotton Linter Association contamination committee and serves on the Cottonseed Products Short Course advisory committee.
The NCPA selected Mr. Phillips to serve on NFPA 36 technical committee on solvent extraction plants.
Recent updates to the National Fire Protection Association - Solvent Plant Safety Standard’s latest issue (1993) have been made and will be discussed during this presentation. Among the changes of great significance to the oilseed processor is the extension of the NFPA 36 to include the preparation department.
Process Safety Management In Practice
After working in various positions for Bunge Corp. and AgProcessing, he joined Central Soya in 1988. He was the senior process engineer with primary duties as head of the renovation and expansion of Central Soya’s Marion, Ohio soy extraction facility. In 1991 he was promoted to superintendent of the plant in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Mr. Barton is a past president of the Tri-States Oil Mill Superintendents Association.
