Ethanol Industry Offering

Keeping you safe, efficient and compliant

Ethanol producers are under tremendous pressure to maximize efficiency to meet growing production demands. From feedstock receiving, to fermentation, to distillation, and on to final shipment, Cross Company provides industry-leading solutions that enable ethanol producers to gain control over their processes, achieve consistent quality, and minimize downtime in order to gain the competitive edge.

Weighing equipment plays a pivotal role in ethanol plant operation. Vehicle scales in particular ensure that all the materials flowing into and out of ethanol plants are accurately accounted for, and often serve as the plant’s “cash register”. Therefore, it is imperative to have the most accurate and reliable weighing equipment on the market. Cross’s measurement group, J.A. King, not only sells the best weighing equipment available, we also back all our products with world-class customer service and technical expertise.

For process control, Cross’s Process Solution Group can help you control, monitor, analyze and safely operate your plant.  High quality products, backed by our service and repair group, ensure you’re up and running efficiently.
