Storage & Transportation

Selecting suitable equipment for reliable bulk solids storage, handling and transportation. Problems with the storage of bulk solids in bins and silos can be avoided if they are designed with respect to the flow properties of the bulk material which has to be stored. The loading and unloading method used depends on both the bulk cargo and the equipment available on the ship and on the dock. Find and select manufacturers of dry bulk material storage systems, and dry bulk loading and unloading systems in this equipment guide.
