Faced with product quality issues, Utility Structures Inc. decided to replace its corroded 25-year-old aggregate bin. The precaster hired BMH Systems to design a new, 350-ton capacity bin with 12 compartments.
The new bin has a service walkway on two sides that includes a handrail with an opening and safety guards to facilitate maintenance.
A 15-foot belt conveyor delivers aggregates via two reversing shuttle conveyors that feed aggregates through the bin’s deflection chute.
BMH Systems assembled the new bin and installed electrical wiring for USI’s material handling system that also includes a bucket elevator, belt conveyors, and an aggregate weigh hopper.
