silos for FOODSTUFFS
Naturally, particularly strict rules apply for storing foodstuffs. Especially for the food industry, M.I.P. has developed glass fibre reinforced (GRP) silos and tanks, which comply with the highest standards employed in the sector.
M.I.P. uses specially selected resins with GMP food approval. Moreover, the research department of Aliancys (formerly DSM Resins) has conducted specialist migration tests on our silos and tanks, so that they comply with the European standards.
Because GRP silos for foodstuffs have a high insulation value, they are almost insensitive to condensation. Consequently, the foodstuffs stored remain dry and will not become lumpy or rot. That property combined with a seamless and very smooth inner wall guarantees a trouble-free, smooth product outflow. This plays a particular role with such moisture sensitive foodstuffs as meal, flour, sugar and malt.
