Clugston invests in bulk powder tankers

Clugston Distribution Services has invested £130,000 in two Spitzer Eurovac bulk powder tankers – a food grade 60 cubic meter tipping silo, and a 56 cubic metre four-pot non-tipping tanker.

The non-tipping tanker was developed with the flour industry in mind, to overcome the problem of flour holding up inside the tank, while the discharge system was designed for ease of cleaning.

General manager David Heath: “At the start of the design process we wanted a safer, more cost effective, and operator friendly tanker for the distribution of flour. We are now the first distribution company in the UK to be operating this type of tanker.”
