Zeppelin’s scope of supply comprises basic engineering, calculation of silos and detailed engineering, fabrication as well as procurement of equipment from third parties to be integrated in the general scope of supply.
Among the equipment used for the systems we stress out the following:
- Rotary valves;
- Bag filters;
- Exhausters and centrifugal fans;
- Blowers, Roots type;
- Diverter valves;
- Over and under pressure valves;
- Fluidized transporters and conveying chutes;
- Loading spouts.
Export volume will be shipped in approximately 40 containers of 40 ft. each, representing 650 tons of equipment.
This contract demonstrates that when a client operates with exemptions, products “made in Brazil” can compete with foreign products under equal conditions.
