These tanks have typically a size of 25 m3, sometimes more. Taking the example of Wheat flour, this allows in one operation to handle the equivalent of 960 bags or 30 Supersacks. Factories have thus a lot of interest to get their
bulk materials in tankers, if they are equipped with silo to hold the discharge material, as it allows to convey in one time a lot of product, reduce drastically the needs for manual handling, and thus allows a higher factory
throughput and efficiency.
Many bulk solids are handled in road silo tankers, such as flours, sugar, but also chemicals, Minerals or plastics. This kind of bulk solids tanker has to be discharged pneumatically in order to be able to empty the tank efficiently, discharge quickly enough, and send the product to a silo.
Bulk tanker loading is used for dust free loading of powdered and granular bulk solids into bulk tanker trucks. Free flowing dry bulk solids in powder and granule form are easily transferred from silos, hoppers, containers and
screw feeders to tanker trucks.
Loading is possible from different equipment like silo, hopper, screw feeder, conveyors etc. Dust free working region, prevention of dust pollution, ensure plant and environmental safety.
