Defines buildings, silos, hoppers, containers of any shape and size used to safely store products for varying lengths of time. These storage facilities are generally built completely or partially in concrete, steel, wood or polymers.
Separating particles according to different sizes, lengths and densities. The general goal is to regroup similar parts into homogenous lots. Sorting is a crucial preliminary step towards creating reproducible industrial compounds.
The action of circulating ambient air inside warehouses and buildings. Ventilation serves to distribute the air to the warehoused products in order to preserve their original characteristics.
The action of evaporating a potion of the water contained in the grain or particles. Several vectors are used for mechanical drying. The most common is by using ambient air. The temperature of the ambient air is raised to .24 calories per Kg/air and by degrees centigrade. The rise in temperature of the water molecules in the material provokes their evaporation and consequently, the expulsion of water molecules.
Transporting bulk granular matter or liquids from one point to another. Several factors are evaluated before arriving at the best solution. For every proposal the fluidity, density and fragility of the substance are analysed. The factors relating to energy consumption, frequency of maintenance intervention, dust and noise nuisance are carefully taken into account.
A series of devices linked together in order to get a final modified product. The steps in the transformation process are systematically analysed according to the volume, number and condition of the inputs. The process is developed in order to allow for automation and repetitiveness.
Refers to the development of equipment based on the mechanical characteristics that are necessary in order to achieve the best performance. Before the final design is made and production begins, a careful review is done of techniques used throughout the world as well as extensive calculations of material strength in static, dynamic and thermal phases.
Refers to internal and external resources of the group for building required components for the projects. Two manufacturing plants are used for production, one in North America and the other in Europe. The group maintains an active network of industrial subcontractors so that it can modulate capacity according to the current volume of production. The company has an extensive list of suppliers for raw materials and carefully selected components.
INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY
The group has its own assembly team. Assembly and equipment maintenance companies are also available worldwide for efficient project realisation.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND SITE COORDINATION
The group has an operational chart that oversees the organization and coordination of specific projects. On all subsequence projects, an engineer assists clients from initial conception until project completion. A competent project manager will fix timelines so that deadlines and conformity are respected.
Group personnel carefully identify the client’s needs in an atmosphere of mutual collaboration. Once the needs are clearly established, the project manager assigned to the task will sketch out a preliminary flow chart for review with the client. Then, a more detailed plan will be produced and presented to the client for approval. At this point, the stage for putting together the technical specifications and implementing timelines begins. A multidisciplinary team is created which brings together representatives from the different trades involved and usually a client representative.
