Our bulk-handling specialists can identify the ‘pinch’ points in your system and devise solutions to overcome any blockages or inefficiencies. This may require new or improved Discharge equipment, Conveying mechanisms or Control systems.
Understanding your material characteristics
To recommend the optimum solution, we may need to analyse your material in our full-scale test centre to determine its properties and characteristics. We hold a vast database of materials, but many have different grades that behave in different ways, requiring a detailed analysis to help us design the most efficient storage and handling system for your plant.
Consistent and controllable material flows
As well as promoting efficient silo emptying, Portasilo dischargers can be used to control and vary the flow of material to precisely match the feed rates you require. By facilitating a smooth, constant flow of material, you avoid the problems of alternate clogging and flushing associated with less efficient systems. This in turn increases efficiency of the downstream equipment and overall plant, resulting in less frequent stoppages for maintenance or repairs, reducing downtime and enhancing overall plant productivity.
Automated control systems to optimise efficiency
Aside from mechanical improvements, we can also recommend control and automation systems to help optimise your plant’s efficiency. Fully automated control systems can be used for everything from filling silos and bins through to more complex multi-ingredient batching, weighing and feeding operations. These advanced control systems increase efficiency by reducing the need for manual intervention and handling – removing the risk of human error. Our material handling specialists can help you to choose the optimum Storage, Discharge, Conveying and Control systems for the materials you need to handle, ensuring the most efficient layout possible to achieve your production requirements.
