BRISTOL - Barton Fabrications, the UK’s largest aluminium silo manufacturer,has developed a free on-line silo capacity calculator to assist customers in the initial stages of plant planning.
Launched as part of the company’s new look website, the planning aid includes a guide to storing materials in the food / plastics industries and guidance on ATEX compliance.
Commenting on the initiative, Mark Barton, Managing Director at Barton Fabrications says:
“We have been using the silo capacity calculator successfully in-house for many years. Recognising the benefits to customers it is now available, free of charge, via our website.
“The tool allows entry of height, diameter and material variables to calculate approximate silo working volume and capacity. More complex aspects of silo design are also taken into account, such as discharge cone angles and ullage space. We have ensured the planning tool is both simple to use and intuitive to allow customers to check silo capacity using basic dimensions.”
Existing and potential customers are invited to visit the company’s new website to experience the benefits of the plant planning tool www.bartonfabs.co.uk.
