Storing bulk materials
Bulk materials such as sawdust, wood shavings, lime, etc. can be easily stored in storage silos, which allow you to:
- contain a significant amount of product (up to 12,000 m³) within a controlled environment;
- reduce the risk of fire or explosion;
- save time in the transfer of materials from one process step to another;
- recover space that can be allocated to other purposes.
Bulk materials are introduced into the silos by pneumatic transport systems or mechanical conveyors, which transport the materials inside pipes, driven by air and even over long distances. The stored product is then extracted from the bottom of the silo using appropriate extraction systems.
If there is potentially explosive material, the storage silos and extraction systems are developed and manufactured in compliance with EU Directive 2014/34/EU (ATEX).
