Silos improve production and health & safety

The installation of eight new silos at the Roeselare, Belgium factory of RPC bpi indupac has doubled the storage capabilities of the site, to help maximise production and support the operation of an additional extrusion line which will be commissioned later in the year.

The 150 tons (300m³) silos have increased total storage capacity to 2,000 tons of bulk material.

In addition, an important health and safety benefit has been improved ergonomics for operators at the factory as the new silos mean less manual handling of raw material bags will be required.

The entire installation was one of the largest and most challenging at the Roeselare site in recent years. Even delivery of the 23.75m silos – on 40m trucks – took around two and a half days to complete.
