Aptech specialise in Bulk Materials Handling Equipment

Aptech have had extensive experience integrating bulk material storage into a wide range of processes.

We have gained significant experience in the way in which materials behave and change characteristics from delivered state and during consolidation storage periods.

Through exposure and observation we have a keen understanding of the material wall and internal friction effects along with the stored atmosphere and environment’s that lead to problematic or trouble free operation.

All our designs receive attention to ensure the correct type of flow within the storage hopper or silo for the particular material in hand. Important factors such as discharge cone shape and geometry as well as the correct selection of discharge technique which may be a combination of spot aeration, surface fluidisation and mechanical extraction.

Silos and Hoppers

Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Aluminium and GRP.

High level of understanding of the importance of process compatibility, serviceability, operability features required of such a large investment.

A full quality control program is implemented ensuring compliance with end users requirements. All elements of design, build, fabrication, finishing (including painting where required) and erection are closely monitored to ensure compliance with specification and regulatory requirements for bulk materials handling equipment
