Application Review: Hapman Engineers Mobile Industrial Processing System that Meets the Mixing & Blending Demands of Changing Manufacturing Environments

Mobile Bulk Material Handling SystemCHALLENGE
Mobile production, or modular pre-processing, is becoming increasingly vital to all major process driven industries and range from oil and gas, chemical, and energy, to food processing and pharmaceutical. One way to overcome the challenge of processing new raw materials in uncertain operating environments is to mix or pre-process at the source rather than trucking feedstock directly from the sourced location. Mixing material at the source can reduce transportation and processing costs, and improve chemical volume and quality through mixing or pre-processing.
