Storage of aggregates, cement, PFA and admixtures in silos, bins and hoppers is often considered the first part of the concrete production process. It is also the first area in which we can apply our expertise to solve a number of challenges, helping to optimise this part of the process.
Creating consistent, predictable movement of material whilst maximising availability / up-time of the vessels can be tackled in a number of ways, including:
- Eliminate blockages, material hold-up and slow feed rates through improving flow characteristics
- Minimise effects of impact and abrasion, reducing maintenance and repair
- Efficiently, and safely, load silos utilising reliable safeguards
- Effectively control dust, reducing clean times
