Silo discharge machines such as our CENTRAC have been in use worldwide since 1970. Some silos in which they were installed are still in use today. But their manufacturers (for example LOUISE S.A., Meyer, Besta & Meyer, WTW-Engineering, MHC-Engineering) do not exist anymore. We are able to upgrade these old systems with our new technologies.
Extractor from WTW-Engineering got distinctive CENTRAC parts
After several serious defects on the Silex silo discharge machine, the plasterboard manufacturer Siniat in Carpentras / France decided to entrust EXTRACTION SYSTEMS with the retrofitting. By installing distinctive components, the Silex has got CENTRAC properties with significantly improved performance and availability.
Erroneous calculation and dimensioning
The incorrectly dimensioned components in a foreign silo discharge machine led to a total break down in a German plasterboard plant. EXTRACTION SYSTEMS was able to save the expensive silo system and ensures its operation for further decades by an extensive repair and the use of its own technology.
Extromat got CENTRAC technology
In Völklingen, Germany, EXTRACTION SYSTEMS got the contract to retrofit two Extromat silo discharge machines from Meyer because the discharge arms cracked almost every year. In addition the Extromat could never achieve the initially planned performance.
