Bulk material storage systems are designed to function as process-critical elements in an integrated bulk material processing or packaging operations. Large capacity, exterior silos and inline agitator hoppers protect bulk dry goods from contamination and harmful environments, and assist in keeping plant operations organized, clean and safe. This storage system enables bulk material handling operations to profitably manage the procurement, supply, and line introduction of bulk materials while also working to improve plant safety. The system design and construction considerations include best practice risk assessment procedures and integrated automation of control, communication, sensing, monitoring, and reporting functions. Engineered for safety and performance, the systems reduce operator interaction with equipment and improve process optimization.
