Spiromatic Silos and Tanks – The Logical Choice For the Food Industry

January 30
10:36 2014

Already in the sixties Spiromatic was a pioneer being the first in the market with GRP or composite silos. Today GRP silos and tanks have become the standard for storage of dry and liquid raw materials. With over half a century of experience, Spiromatic has built up a solid reputation in the food industry.

For storing dry raw materials, Spiromatic developed its own GRP production process where silos – including the cone – are cast in one, seamless piece. This not only results in a stronger silo, but also in a smoother surface that makes the raw material slide down evenly. Moreover, the thermal conductivity of composite versus aluminum is 2000 times lower.

This results into fewer temperature fluctuations and lower risk for condensation. Composite also resists very well to extreme temperatures – both warm and cold. Moreover, the Spiromatic composite silos are covered with a special white UV-reflecting topcoat, which even reinforces the insulation effect.

Spiromatic also offers plenty of solutions for storing liquid materials, ranging from drain water tanks, over fat and oil tanks to brine tanks. These tanks are chemically resistant, offer excellent mechanical properties, demand limited maintenance and are non-conductive. The production of these thanks is also done in-house and the options are numerous: volumes between 1,000 and 300,000 litre, horizontal or vertical (the latter with either flat, dish or cone bottom), double walled (with leak detection) and depending on the range of application using different resin types.

Next to extensive experience in storage of dry and liquid materials, Spiromatic also has the knowledge, technology and equipment in-house for the further handling (weighing, conveying and dosing) of the bulk materials stored in the silos and tanks. In short, Spiromatic offers its customers sustainable solutions in ‘pre-food processing’, which makes the company absolutely unique.
