CASE STUDY FOR 1200 TON SILO WEIGHING
Our customer, an iron mine in the north of Sweden, refines ore to iron. At their harbor, iron pellets are stocked in silos for loading and shipping. In the process of building three additional silos, the customer sought a low profile 300-ton capacity-weighing module. Each silo required four weighing modules.
In addition, the customer wanted only a relationship with a partner who is able to develop a system that would fit its existing silos. The silos hung upside down into large concrete and steel structures where side-load effects and uplift forces were minimal but required bolt sizes within the given space constraints.
“The low profile design and the units customized for our application made the construction and installation of the silos a lot less complex and saved us time in the construction project.”
