Among new products shown by Spiroflow at Pack Expo was a new, economic range of 'Spirostore' Flexible Silos that provide tailor-made solutions for quick, efficient and safe storing of bulk solids and ingredients in most industries.

Also shown was Spiroflow's new Aero-Mechanical Conveyor (AMC) 'AutoTensioner' and the 'Spirofil" line of Series 'C' range of "Spirofil" Bulk Bag Fillers.
'Spirostore' Flexible Silos are made of a durable, yet flexible, polyester fabric supported on a steel frame and are an alternative to steel or aluminum silos. The silos can store 7,000 ft3 of dry bulk material and support weights up to 90,000 lbs. Each 'Spirostore' Silo is adapted to suit specific customer requirements in terms of space available, exact product specifications and how the product should be discharged. 'Spirostore' Silos can be mobile or stationary and made to suit any indoor or weatherproof location and designed to connect to any of Spiroflow's range of conveyors
