06 February 2023

Kässbohrer continues to meet the unmet needs of the transportation sector with its engineering excellence 90m3 tipping silo K.SSK 90 in a new partnership with Powder-Trans.

Powder-Trans, one of the largest operators in the powder transport industry in the Nordics, was founded by Carl-Johan Blomqvist in 1972. Mainly operating in the Nordic countries, Powder-Trans also carries out transport to the Baltics and Central Europe. With many years of experience and the continuous development of its fleet through new investments, Powder-Trans is able to meet even the most demanding transportation needs of granular and powdered materials.

With their newest investment of Kässbohrer’s K.SSK 90, Powder-Trans's fleet is now supported by the most efficient silo for low-density bulk material transportation that provides maximum loading capacity thanks to its 90m3 volume.

The only choice for maximum capacity, Kässbohrer K.SSK 90’s ingenious design allows its customers to perform loading, unloading, cleaning, and maintenance operations in the most efficient way.

Mr. Fredrik Blomqvist, CEO and Managing Director of Powder-Trans, Mr. Mehmet Önen, Head of Key Account Management of Kässbohrer, and Mr. Matti Virtanen, Sales Director of Vak Oy attended the delivery ceremony and detailed their newly established partnership.

“As Powder-Trans, our company's guideline has always been in line with customer-oriented service, environmental awareness, and innovative thinking. Therefore, it is no coincidence that we are working with Kässbohrer, the only manufacturer that provides 90m3 silos in their standard product portfolio with the fastest delivery time in Europe.

With the newest addition to our fleet, we will increase the efficiency we provide to our customers for powder transportation, while both reducing the environmental impact with fewer trips and keeping our innovative spirit alive.” stated, Mr. Blomqvist

Mr. Önen also shared his thoughts about the valuable cooperation: “The first tipping Kässbohrer silo semi-trailer was developed in 1953. Adhering to our motto "Enginuity", we combine our innovative power and R&D competency to develop vehicles for all sectors with tipping, non-tipping, and container silo ranges, presenting the highest number of options to meet their unmet operational needs.

Our tipping silo, K.SSK 90 stands out as the only choice for transporting low-density bulk materials, because it not only increases the efficiency of their operations with maximum volume, but also ensures fast and easy loading, unloading, cleaning and maintenance processes.

For loading ease, Kässbohrer K.SSK is offered with 8 manholes that ensure our customers benefit from the maximum volume in the most efficient way.

In the unloading operations, K.SSK 90 allows continuous and easy flow of the material with its enhanced flow angles, smooth aluminum surfaces, a tilt angle of up to 45º enabled by the hydraulic tipping system, and the 4 kW electro-hydraulic pump alongside its high-quality stainless steel electro-polished discharge cone.

For the flexible needs of our customers, we also offer a wide range of options such as tank inside acid cleaning applications, various discharge flow accelerators, vibrators, and different size of discharge valves.

For reduction of operational costs, and easy maintenance, Kässbohrer K.SSK tipping silos are equipped with de-mountable airlines, safety couplings, vacuum valves and breathing valves as standard. Additionally, the highest quality aluminum smooth inner surface also minimizes the material residues to provide ease of cleaning and less operational time in cleaning stations.

Kässbohrer supports its customers that are operating in the Nordic region with its 43 after-sales support locations, 27 of which provide complete aftersales support special for tanker and silo vehicles.

With our highest-quality vehicles and growing after-sales services network, we will continue to support our valuable customer Powder-Trans with its operations.”
