Bulk Storage & Process Systems Limited Install New Bulk Malt Silo At Felinfoel Brewery

Felinfoel Brewery, one of the oldest breweries in the UK has been brewing at this site since 1878 producing quality cask ales.   The production of beer in cans commenced in 1935, making it the oldest canners of craft beer in the world!   The traditional Mash Room is situated on the top floor of the building and until 2020 50 Kg bags of whole malt were delivered for milling and lifted with a sack elevator.   Two years ago a bucket elevator was installed to enable the bags to be unloaded at ground level before being weighed and lifted to be milled.  With the demand to reduce raw material costs the idea of a bulk malt silo was investigated to bring in the malt using 27T bulk lorries thus eliminating the need to handle the bags manually. 

So Felinfoel looked to Surrey and Northampton based company, Bulk Storage and Process Systems Limited (BSPS) to design and install a bulk malt silo and conveyor to the malt elevator.   The design and implementation of the new silo needed to be in keeping with the historic building and BSPS were able to achieve this by designing external wood cladding system around the silo. 

BSPS undertook all planning, design, and installation with their own fitters.
