Automated bulk storage system

45 NBE 400Bulk material storage systems are designed to function as process-critical elements in integrated processing or packaging operations. From large capacity, exterior silos to inline agitator hoppers, the material storage units protect bulk dry goods from contamination and assist in keeping plant operations organized, clean and safe.

Company’s silos, hoppers and bins enable bulk material handling operations to manage the procurement, supply and line introduction of bulk materials while also working to improve plant safety. Bulk storage system design and construction considerations include best practice risk assessment procedures as well as integrated automation of control, communication, sensing, monitoring and reporting functions. Systems reduce operator interaction with equipment and improve process optimization. — National Bulk Equipment Inc., Holland, Mich., 616/399-2220; www.nbe-inc.com
