Solutions for better Materials Handling and Control from the Start.
PolyMation provides a range of products for Materials Storage and Management that are then integrated to the plant materials loading, automating Raw Materials handling at the start of the process and reducing labour, handling and materials losses through manual handling.
PolyMation have several suppliers who are specialists in Flexible Silos which are an ideal solution for storing from as little as 2.5 tonnes to 30 tonnes per flexible silo.
The Flexible silos are designed project to project depending on customer requirements and are an effective method to decanting raw materials from 25 kg bags / jumbo bags and octobins into a central silo location.
The footprint of the silos are compact and allow users to maximize on space savings, plus reduce handling and ensure raw material grades are available 24/7.
Filling the Silos is rapid and completed in 2 to 3 hours providing storage for 3 to 7 days of production depending on sizing and setup.
The Flexible Silos can be positioned internally in the factory away from production in a central materials storage area reducing raw material movements and all the issues associated with this.
Return on investment is often calculated to be rapid with savings amortized across better housekeeping and reducing losses of prime materials in a plant and this can easily equate to 0.5% to 1.0% per annum of total prime materials cost.

PolyMation can offer Standard bolt together solutions for Day Bin storage in a range of sizes, and likewise also offer custom designed fabrications for Day Bins for a range different intermediate storage requirements.
Day Bin usage can be from compact clean solutions for expensive additives / masterbatches, through to regrind or natural materials allowing materials to be efficiently moved around a factory and positioned beside machines. Connections for conveying to machines are built in and designed according to material type, throughput and flow characteristics.
PolyMation has a range of experiences for improving the handling of Big Bags and Octobins getting material more efficiently into production. Examples of applications include the unloading of big bags and Octobins and blown into Silo storage, to more efficient handling and material decanting to allow easier movement of raw materials in process.
The SW Sweeper Series offers a cost effective solution to emptying Octobins automatically without the need for manual intervention or conveying shortages due to vacuum probes falling out of position.
The Maguire Sweeper range automatically “sweeps” the pile of material in a 360 rotation, vacuuming material to process as it’s called for, ensuring material is consistently fed.
The Sweepers are ideal for big boxes / Octobins and also offer effectively solutions to poor flow materials such as low-density flakes and regrind too.
