Bulk-handling systems designed to minimise downtime and maintenance costs

Creating efficient, reliable bulk storage and handling systems, designed specifically for the properties of your materials, Portasilo helps to optimise your productivity and minimise the risk of disruptive blockages and other handling problems.

Efficient systems operating for longer

Our aim when designing your bulk-handling system is to specify equipment that will work smoothly and efficiently on a continuous basis, with long intervals between maintenance interventions or stoppages.

1) Minimising blockages and maintenance stoppages

Portasilo bulk-handling systems are designed to prevent material building up in silos or clogging up your conveying lines. Blockages of this nature require systems to be shut down, cleaned out and reassembled, which can be time-consuming and costly. By ensuring material is fed consistently at the required rate for your processes, we enable your system to operate in a steady state, with minimal risk of bottlenecks or backlogs.

2) Improving productivity and profitability

Fewer stoppages for maintenance or repairs mean your system is operational – and generating revenues – for longer periods. That means your overall output is increased and profitability improved. Your maintenance costs are reduced and the amount of downtime at your plant is kept to an absolute minimum.
