Grain Facilities - Gerico France

High speed external doors for flour mill in Kenya

Gerico France designs, manufactures and installs bulk solid storage and handling equipment. It offers a range of solutions such as bucket elevators, conveyors, warehouses, milling machines and feed producing equipment.

The challenge

Gerico France delivered a turn-key flour mill project in Mombasa, Kenya for a grain milling company at their state of the art milling plant. They required a solution to stop dust going out of the building instead of being aspirated by the installed system when emptying grain trucks into the wheat grain intake pit.

The solution

Hart installed three Speedor Storm doors from 4m wide x 5m high to 7m high. The Speedor Storm is the next generation of large external door which has improved wind resistance on both sides of the door and is suitable for larger openings, greater than 6m. This door does not require separate wind bars as the curtain contains wind bracing every 1m and is held securely into the guide channels with rollers at either side.

The success

Hart Doors sent an experienced engineer to Mombasa to supervise and assist in the installation and commissioning of the doors along with the training of staff to install future orders. 18 more Speedor Storms were ordered for a specialised dry bulk discharge and handling terminal for grain imports, located in Shimanzi, Mombasa.
