For the storage and mixing of bulk goods in the food industry, silos are usually designed with a conical outlet for an optimal handling of the goods. Cold-rolled steel is used for materials that come in contact with the media; if required corresponding material certificates are available. During fabrication, close attention must be paid to a gap-free welding and interior weld seams must be ground flush with the sheet metal (Ra<0,8 μm). The final surface is treated with ceramic or glass bead blasting.

Vessels and pipelines in the food and beverage industries must be constructed to withstand stringent cleaning and disinfecting. A maximum roughness (Ra) of 0,8 µm is often required in the component interior. Foil wrapped, cold-rolled sheet metal (2B) is used and the weld seams are tested for flaws and ground flush with the sheet metal surface in several steps.

A true LBF strength: finding and optimising technical solutions with our customers. Together with our customer’s ideas and our network of experience, we design products, provide services and complete projects. LBF can come aboard at any stage during a project – whether the solution is almost complete or if it is still unclear exactly what product is needed. Design sketches, brainstorming, sample productions, as well as taking measurements and testing all lead to finding a solution.

A well planned logistics management is worth its weight in gold, especially on large construction sites. In coordination with the customer, the components are given customer position numbers, which have already been included in the assembly plans. If needed, the packages are marked with an identification tag allocating the correct place on the construction site where it is to be assembled. For international projects thorough packing lists for the entire scope of delivery can be compiled upon request. For the freight, LBF has access to standard trucks and trucks with special functions, including those with cranes for unloading or low loaders.

Machine hoods are used for the protection of the power unit as well as for noise reduction. For this the machine’s operating and maintenance requirements must be taken into consideration. Any generated exhaust heat must be discharged through a ventilation system. Openings for pipes and cables, as well as inspection openings, must be included.

Welded duct silencers are designed for robust applications and can be used for high pressures, high temperatures and high flow velocities. Special designs include discharge silencers, exhaust gas silencers or blow-off silencers – the acoustic and mechanical design should be exactly tailored to the operating conditions. In the project presented on this page, the centred splitters have been designed to taper into the ring splitter.
