Large-capacity exterior silos, inline agitator hoppers, and material storage units protect bulk dry goods from contamination and harmful environments, and assist in keeping plant operations organized, clean, and safe.

Silos, hoppers, and bins enable bulk material handling operations to profitably manage the procurement, supply, and line introduction of bulk materials while also working to improve plant safety. The bulk storage 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.
