Bulk Handling Global announces its appointment as Australasian agents for leading European designer and manufacturer of spiralled silo systems B.S.P Engineering (Italy). The alliance with B.S.P. (Bulk Storage Plants) Engineering has come about as strategic and natural progression of the company’s development, and to strengthen its position in the Australian silo market. Bulk Handling Global is the only Australian in the industry with in house bulk solids and powder flow properties testing capability (bulk solids flow testing can be carried out in laboratory, or on site).
The spiralled silo systems are cost effective thanks to their rolled lip form construction. Since no welding is required, this system eliminates typical common welded silo problems such as weld fatigue, quality issues, rusting and delivery (damage, avoids special permit and delivery curfew) issues. The silos and storage tanks are constructed from coil material using special roll forming machinery, and are formed ground up, on site.
The lipp formation of the silo provides far greater strength than standard plate or corrugated iron construction. The storage systems can store minerals, grains, powders and liquids.
The diameters of silos and bulk liquids tanks range from 2.7m diameter up to 25m diameter. Height of dry bulk storage silos can be up to 35m. Capacities ranging in the order of 3790m3 dry bulk storage, and 4 mega-litres liquids storage.
The materials used in construction can range from mild steel, galvanised steel and stainless steel, to combat aggressive environments. Also available, are special alloys and dual plate materials such as Inox and Platinox.
