Together with our customer, Solico developed a bulk carrier trailer for transporting sludge (residue from the purification of waste water). The integration of the lightweight characteristic in the design offers a larger load capacity. 

Customer:Polem, CCH

Bulk trailer

The non-stick surface finish on the inside guarantees a smooth and complete discharge, thereby ensuring an optimal emptying process and leaving minimal amount of residue in the carrier. By 2018 already 9 trailers were sold.

Why are composites used here?

Lightweight
The specific weight of composites varies between 1.5 and 2.0 compared to 2.7 to 7.8 for aluminium and steel.

Cost effectiveness
Though composite materials themselves are slightly more expensive than metals, combining properties such as insulation and weight savings often results in a cost effective product.
