Automation of bulk solids handling systems

Automation and storage, automation and discharge:
The storage of large bulk solids quantities is realised in silos, big-bags and containers, equipped with automatic discharge aids for a safe extraction of the required product amount from the container. In case of larger capacities the bags emptying is made automatically; at smaller discharge capacities the manual discharge process is usually supported by mechanical devices (like hoists ....). 

Automation and conveying:
The application of automation technologies in the field of bulk solids transport - comprising both mechanical systems (screw conveyors, bucket elevators, chain conveyors...) and also pneumatic systems (conveying under overpressure and by vacuum, fluidized bed chutes...) - has a very strong impact on production and productivity. It allows to transport even very large bulk quantities in a reliable and safe manner over great distances without human intervention. 

Automation and metering, automation and weighing:
In the field of metering and weighing the automation allows higher metering accuracies and has - besides of an productivity increase - mainly an impact on the product quality. Of great importance are the production records and batch protocols recorded and filed by the recipe management system.

Our scope of supply and services covers:

  • Elaboration of the duty specification – as a verbal description of the system – and process diagram
  • Elaboration of the technical specification with general structure, instrument list and consumer list, definition of operating mode and operating philosophy





  • Definition of the control system
  • Engineering of the control cabinet
  • Programming of the software



  • Operation and observation of plants
  • Recording of process data


  • Complete solutions without interfaces for the comprehensive control of a process plant
  • Graphic display of automized process steps including variable batch control, batch tracking, material management, production planning and quality management



Commissioning and start-up

  • Installation on site including cabling, electrical commissioning (loop check, rotation check), start-up of the process
  • Training of the operation and maintenance staff
