With 32 years’ experience in bulk materials handling, I’ve seen how often the process is treated as an afterthought. All too often, the clients we deal with focus on getting the mixer bottomed out first and leave the handling systems until later. It’s either that, or they prioritise the building construction.

The demand for quality dough based products from consumers is rising.

The importance of a healthy silo discharge aid only becomes apparent when they fail, and sometimes this can stop the whole production process. Do these image look familiar?   If you are having problems feeding the process, suffering from material waste issues […]

When people are browsing shelves at a supermarket, many of them do not consider the journey that food products have been through. Most foods have a long manufacturing process, as well as several different variables which have to be precisely correct for the product to meet a consistently high quality level.
