Dry bulk tank system for PSV

Provides a reliable way of transferring liquid and powder cargo from vessel to rig. Tailor-made dry bulk handling systems with remote controls, tanks and valves, air dryers and compressors are designed to suit customer requirements.

The Bulk Handling System (BHS) is a system for storing and transferring dry bulk media from the vessel to the rigs. Normally the material is cement, barite or bentonite. The cargo is transferred from the tanks by air flow. Dry bulk cargo is fluidised in the tanks by compressed air, then discharged to the rig tanks via the pipes and hoses using the air flow from the compressor. The BHS system can be built up by any number of tanks and independent air circuits. Usually it is arranged with 4-6 tanks connected in two independent systems, each with its own compressor.
