, Andy and Michael Franko of Fluid-Quip reminisce about the company’s roots, reveal how they survived the economic recession and divulge the secrets of their patent-pending maximized stillage co-products system (MSC™ System).

The MSC™ System is only the first stage in as series of innovative steps the company has created for ethanol plants to recover additional by-products. According to Michael, there are additional steps to further refine the protein by-product of ethanol production. “They don’t have to interrupt the operation of the present plant while they build this,” says Andy Franko in the interview.
