Selecting the right storage and receival solutions for material handling

Urban growth, coupled with a need for a stricter environmental focus, means it's now essential to contain odour and mess by selecting the right solids conveying, storage and receival solutions that can deliver the required capability.

The right conveying, storage and receival solutions are important to keep up with growing demand.

Conveying, storage and receival solutions for modern municipalities and industries

The right storage and receival solutions are important to keep up with growing demand and increasingly tight regulations. So what solutions are available?


To start, there are two outloading system solutions, live bottom and sliding frame, coupled with rectangular or round silo systems.


An autofilling containment solution that's been designed specifically with road transport in mind, SPIROTAINER® can handle both foul and objectionable waste materials hygienically. When municipalities take advantage of this solution, there's no longer a need to build specialised screening buildings, and it's a simple undertaking to expand the system capacity. Essentially, all that's required is adding another SPIROTAINER®. To further reduce a need for operator management and monitoring, SPIROTAINER® can be paired with spiral conveyor systems available from SPIRAC. These innovative systems move waste products while preventing odours and leaks and reducing vermin and insect attraction.

SPIRAC truck receival bunkers and hoppers

So what about receival? When a truck arrives at a central processing facility, how can municipalities transfer the dewatered sludge? SPIRAC truck receival bunkers, which are custom designed each time to suit the needs of each plant, employ live bottom or sliding frame technology, and are able to handle a significant array of sludge consistencies and flow rates.

Like SPIROTAINER®, these bunkers are also easy to operate, and run at a low RPM with high torque shaftless spirals in order to reduce the chance of a troublesome blockage. Furthermore, these features help to ensure there's almost no need for maintenance. Municipalities and industries around the world need to meet wastewater standards as the population continues to grow, year after year. Instead of depending on outdated or otherwise outmoded wastewater solutions, consider the effectiveness of capable technologies that can offer the reliability and functionality required.
