Bulk Material Handling
We solve the unique challenges that come with processing large quantities of materials
Our team at Salas O’Brien is experienced in providing solutions for bulk material handling projects. We work with you to design and implement the right system for your needs. From designing conveyor systems to optimizing material flow, our team can help you improve efficiency and streamline your operations.
Bulk Material Handling Projects
What we can offer
From initial consultation to full specification and construction facilitation, we offer a complete array of services, including the development of advanced and often groundbreaking solutions when conventional approaches can’t deliver quality results.
System design & equipment selection
Salas O’Brien designs systems that can handle bulk materials, from the initial material intake all the way through to the final product storage and shipment. We optimize the design to consider factors such as the type and properties of the material, the desired processing rate, and the space and cost constraints of the facility so it is efficient, reliable, and safe.
Feasibility studies and preliminary engineering
Salas O’Brien examines the technical, economic, and logistical factors to determine if a project is achievable. We also provide the initial phase of engineering where basic design decisions are made, and early calculations and analysis are performed to determine the feasibility of a project.
Dust control and mitigation systems
Salas O’Brien designs and implements dust control systems to minimize the risk of hazardous dust emissions and to protect workers and the environment, while keeping your facility compliant. Our systems include various methods, such as dust suppression and ventilation systems.
Operations and maintenance improvements and inspection
Salas O’Brien’s team of experts work closely with clients to identify opportunities for operational and maintenance improvements. We help optimize the system’s efficiency, reduce downtime, and increase productivity. We provide detailed reports and recommendations for repairs or upgrades to improve the system’s performance.
Start-up and commissioning
Salas O’Brien provides start-up and commissioning services to ensure that the material handling system is functioning as designed. We test and verify all systems, including mechanical, electrical, and software components, to ensure safe and reliable operation.
Procurement and structural design
Salas O’Brien provides procurement services to source high-quality equipment and materials for the project—including fabricated steel. We also offer structural design services to ensure that the system is built to meet the project’s specific needs and requirements.
