MaxiStore® is the unique conveying system developed by Schenck Process for the efficient and cost-effective loading of dry, bulk materials into flat storage facilities. The design is based on proven Redler® en-masse chain conveyor technology and the innovative MaxiStore® system delivers both operational advantages and significant capital cost savings when compared to traditional store loading technology.

Solving flat storage challenges with the automated MaxiStore® System 

Flat storage is generally used when the characteristics of some dry, bulk materials make storage in silos problematic. Typically, flat stores are loaded at high rates (200 – 1000 tph) and material is transported to the store via a belt conveyor located near the apex of the building roof. This traditional design leads to inefficient use of building space, high building costs, and a variety of health and safety issues. MaxiStore® offers an alternative, wall-supported conveying system for use in flat stores or warehouses used for storing bulk materials such as grains and animal feeds. The design of the Maxistore® system allows the entire space to be filled with product.

MaxiStore® is a cost-effective, reliable, and safer system

The automated MaxiStore® bridge distribution system is built around an en-masse chain conveyor installed on a bridge structure mounted on rails running along the length of the store. The conveyor spans the storage area (typically 40 – 50m wide) and because the conveyor is “cranked” it follows the building roof profile which allows more material to be stored.
