Since its inception in 1981, Barton Fabrications has designed, constructed, and installed thousands of silos for many different business sectors all over the world from its manufacturing plant in Bristol, UK. The company provides a full solution to all of their customers' needs, from design assistance through the production and installation of stainless steel and aluminium vessels.
Barton Fabrications is not only well-known for manufacturing, but also for accommodating all of the accessories involved in the production of bulk storage silos, and the company fully complies with all current legislation for the design, production, installation, and refurbishment of stainless steel and aluminium storage containers, and this is what lends the company its acclaimed international status as an industry leader.
According to a Barton Fabrications representative, the starting point for every silo construction is to establish the storage materials and where the vessel, or in the event of numerous vessels, they would be located. A silo sizing tool is offered by the company to provide an estimate of the content for various materials as well as silo size.
“Silos are made from a variety of materials depending on their intended function, including coated steel, concrete, stainless steel, aluminium, and GRP/plastic. Aluminium is the most prevalent material used in the plastics and food industries, and while stainless steel is used in food storage, it is more commonly found in the medical or pharmaceutical sectors.
As one of the country's leading aluminium silo manufacturers, Barton Fabrications can guarantee our customers that aluminium is lightweight yet strong, easily welded and self-supporting and that its strong oxide layer ensures it does not contaminate the material being stored, with no maintenance issues or any additional surface treatment requirements,” he said.
Barton Fabrications can design and build silos to safely store nearly anything from fine powders to food products, cohesive products and fibrous materials. They not only design and manufacture silos to customer specifications, but they also offer a variety of standard silo sizes in stainless steel and aluminium, to choose from.
Their silo design experience and engineering expertise enable them to manufacture silos with capacities to meet any requirement, which is only one of the reasons why Barton Fabrications not only holds a national accreditation but has also gained the trust and recognition of many international clients.
A Safe Contractor Approved certificate, which many blue-chip companies require, was awarded to Barton Fabrications in October 2015. This certificate not only lends credence to their credibility in the industry but also clearly demonstrates that the government-run health and safety assessment scheme determined that the company meets all relevant health and safety standards.
