Consultancy, training, testing and troubleshooting

SHAPA has many members who are involved in the storage, handling and processing of dry bulk solids. The majority are manufacturers of equipment and systems, but many are specialist support organisations for other members, non-members and end-users alike. For anyone needing specialist advise, specialist services or specialist support, you can do no better than look to SHAPA. In addition, the Association runs specialist courses and seminars which are open to end-users. Keep an eye on the News section of our website.

As with many industries, there are a myriad of legislation, codes of practice, British Standards, European Directives and good old ‘best practice’ derived through years of experience. The bulk materials industry is no exception and there is no better place than with the Shapa membership to know that you are in good hands. So, when it comes to Equipment Design, Systems Design or understanding the implications of the DSEAR/ATEX Explosion and Fire regulations, there are SHAPA members with the knowledge and expertise to help. Consultancy is readily available and, also Training - so that essential knowledge can be gained and retained within your own organisation.

When Testing of Materials or Equipment is required, there are SHAPA members offering such services. They provide independent test data and unbiased advice.

Inevitably, things will occasionally go wrong. By far and away the majority of problems arise, not with new equipment designed for a specific application, but when there has been a change of some kind. It is not unknown for a piece of equipment that has done a sterling job for years to suddenly become troublesome following a change of materials supplier – even though the material is ostensibly to the same specification! In which case, it may require a modification of the equipment or system to cope with the new material. The sub-categories above indicate the range of expertise on hand to assist.

And, in those rare cases where there is a dispute between parties, the services of an Expert Witness can be invaluable in the determination of where fault, if any, lies. Again, SHAPA members can help.
