21.05.2018 Further plastics storage business for UK’s foremost aluminium silo manufacturer

Barton Fabrications, Portishead, UK, is continuing to reap the benefits of the buoyant national market for plastic raw materials. Its latest installation is for six aluminium silos supplied to a customer who wishes to remain anonymous. The vessels, which support the plastic moulding industry, are 9m high with a diameter of 3.5m and 40t capacity used for storing plastic granules. The silos are all identical and fitted with load cells and telemetry for ease of content management and stock re-ordering. 
Commenting on the six silo installation, Mark Barton, managing director of Barton Fabrications said: “We are seeing unprecedented demand for storage vessels from the UK plastics industry. This multi-silo installation is just one of several we have completed recently.” Others, involving UK silo contracts delivered within the past 12 months, include new Barton storage vessels supplied to the Knutsford site of Albis UK, the Chesterfield production facility of IKO Polymerics, Twinplast’s Dunstable manufacturing site, and the Coalville plant of Bevex, part of the global L’ISOLANTE K-FLEX Group. 
Barton’s most recent contract was for six aluminium silos, all of the same dimensions
