Silo BeCont® is a patent pending specially designed container for storage, transports, and dosing of powder and other dry products. To maintain an even mix of different substances in a product where all particles has special characters is for many companies a must. Examples of this can be ingredients in food, active substances in pharmaceuticals or the mix of materials in other products. The Silo BeConts® special construction allows a mass flow which allows a fully emptied container. When you handle dry products often problems occur due to different sizes, weights and friction which all leads to separation. Meaning the material first in – is not the first out. By using the Silo BeCont® you allow the first material in to be the first material out and at the same time avoiding common problems with separation. The reason why is the design out the cone which allows a mass flow. When getting a mass flow the need for emptying the silo through vibration or airflow is eliminated, methods those on their own can lead to increased separation. Silo BeCont® has rather a mixing function and can even be used for mixing a material by placing two silos on to of each other. Increased efficiency is achieved be decreased scrap, decreased need for mixing, easy handling and that the Silo BeCont® after filling is ready to be transported to the next step in the process.
The product is as standard produced in natural polyethylene, but can also be delivered with black pigmented. Polyethylene is characterized by its good resistance towards both acid and basic liquids and its good resistance to corrosion. All products are manufactured in FDA approved material and the final products have been approved according to Normpack's rules concerning migration. The Silo BeCont® is mostly used for transports and internal handling within the food industry and processing industry. Silo BeCont® is delivered with or without frame for handling with forklift or for installation in buildings. Since the Silo BeCont® is produced by rotational moulding in one piece there are no splices and no weak points that can cause contamination or cleaning issues. This together with the large radiuses allows an easy cleaning and maintenance. At the end of the life cycle the material in the silo is fully recyclable. Rotational moulded products can be used in a wide temperature span starting from approximately -30°C to +55°C. At higher temperatures above +30°C we recommend you to contact your contact person at Cipax for more information. All welding is carried out in accordance to SS-EN 13067*. Cipax is also certified according to ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004.
