The Spider

Cotton Gin Equipment Spider
Tested to perfection:

Superior Performance:
Reliable, strong, advanced

Our ribs perform at high capacities, and you can keep the gin stand in and gin. Our competition is offering a rib with a wearplate on it, but they have great difficulty securing the plate and have made no changes to the ribs design. They have simply installed a wearplate on the casting.

Jet Dryer

High Efficiency:
Lower Power Requirements

The power requirements of most drying systems on the market today are really off the chart and unnecessary. Most systems use way too much CFM and because of this, heaters that are way too big in terms of BTU's have to be installed.

Loyd Vandergriff
The daily operations of the company are run by Loyd Vandergriff, son of the company founder the legendary A.L. Vandergriff. Vandergriff Inc's current product line is the Vandergriff Gin Rib for Lummus and Continental gin stands, and the Jet Dyer. This year, Vandergriff entered into a business arrangement with Brad Glenn, and Sowega Manufacturing out of Climax, Georgia. They make and sell the Vandergriff Jet Dryer with John Freeman as chief Engineer. This dryer has proven to be the most efficient and cost effective dryer on the market today. Sowega Manufacturing also designs and sells the "Spider"; also the most cost efficient way to get those round modules into your gin. See "Contacts" for more information and contact numbers.
