Go green with corn cob products!

Looking for "green" materials and a media friendly to our environment? Turn to processed corn cobs from The Andersons Mt. Pulaski Mills! Our precisely sized corn cob absorbent and abrasive media are:

Organic | Non-toxic | Sustainable | Incinerable | Flushable | Biodegradable

We can custom blend any of our corncob products. We'll meet your tough specifications and capture exactly what you need. We'll even customize your packaging and accommodate your private labeling. All of our packaging is OSHA compliant with contents, safety hazards and point of origin with labeling provided in English, Spanish and French.

Most importantly, we are customer-driven. Our use of attrition mills provide cube-cut, accurately sized particles, as opposed to our competitor's use of roller mills which produce flat, flaky "oatmeal-like" particles. Because of our milling process, our corn cob media is less likely to become lodged in or stuck on manufactured pieces. The Andersons Mt. Pulaski Mills boasts the lowest moisture content on our finished products at 4 – 6% typical with a maximum level of 10%. For 60 years we've been producing the most accurately sized, air-washed corn cob media in the marketplace – and we guarantee your satisfaction.
